Surrounded by Ocean – Can the Tom Jones show go on?

Legendary vocalist Sir Tom Jones is set to play live on Plymouth Hoe on Friday the 18th of June.

The event, orchestrated by LHG events and Plymouth City Council, was originally intended to be performed last year as to celebrate Tom Jones 80th Birthday.

The show, intended for last year is still going ahead as planned, however, this year instead. Due to the unprecedented coronavirus pandemic.

Following the governments roadmap, will the event still go ahead as planned? Or will it have to be postponed further?

From the 29th of march, covid restrictions will begin to ease. By the 17th of May, large indoor events can be hosted with the maximum capacity of 1000, or 50 percent. However outdoor events will be capped at 4,000. Considering this, the show could go on. Although it would be limited to 4,000 people.

Ideally, the show would be hard to host if more than 4,000 people where to attend. The popularity of Tom Jones as an artist means there will be plenty of people hoping to see him live.

As it stands it looks as though the show may be cancelled again until the future or it will carry on, respecting social distancing measures limiting the show to 4,000 people, for anyone who has not managed to book a ticket already, this could cause the tickets to cost more as to substitute for the missing seats.

As it stands there is no new news on what is happening with the concert, a monumental live show could be cancelled for the people of Plymouth however it could work out in the end.
