Tom Jones preformed live at a packed out Aintree
Photographs by Jo Forrest
. and review by Patrick Trollope

THE Welsh music legend, Tom Jones, held back the rain at Aintree Racecourse, at a fantastic open air concert, on 10 June 2016. He sang a wide range of songs from his huge repertoire, which now spans over ½ a century, including many of his biggest hits. With tickets starting at £38.50, this was 1 hell of show and no matter what you paid, you got more than your money’s worth! Despite being in his late 70's, he was bouncing around the stage, far more than most acts health his age do. He started late, but he kept on playing, well into the night. Sadly we had to leave so we could catch the trains, and he was still playing... We have no idea what happened to those who stayed, but we are told Merseyrail did add extra trains to the Ormskirk and Liverpool Services. With Deacon / Blue's  in May and now this once, Aintree Racecourse has delivered 2 amazing shows, after 2 fantastic days of racing. Commenting on the dates, Tom Jones said:- "What a lovely experience this was. I would like to thank all of the audience for staying to watch me, at this Jockey Club Live event. I had such a warm welcome from you all. These events are such a great nights out, in fabulous surroundings. Thank you Liverpool for letting me entertain you!" The 'Evening At The Races' and Aintree Racecourse is most defiantly a must see event now and the Jockey Club Live events are set to get better and better. For us, the most evocative thing on the night was that Tom Jones dedicated a song to his late wife Linda, who died after a short, but fierce battle with cancer, back in April. This was a very moving moment as he sang a song taken from one of his old albums. "This is one of the songs my late wife loved the most. I want to dedicate it to her." he said. Sadly we could not make out what the name of the track or the album was due to noise from the road. Interestingly, we also spotted what we think was Sefton Council, out with sound meters on the main road as we headed in... Other top highlights worth noting were the billed songs:- 'Kiss', 'Delilah' and the classic:- 'It's Not Unusual.'
