The distinct tones of Sir Tom Jones can be heard at a racecourse next week.
The popular Welsh vocalist will perform on Friday, August 1, at Newmarket Racecourses as part of the Adnams Newmarket Nights, now in their 28th season.
Sir Tom – whose hits include Not Unusual, She’s a Lady, Delilah and Kiss – will return to the Suffolk venue having played in front of almost 22,000 fans at each of his last two concerts in 2011 and 2012.
The gig will follow seven races at The July Course, running from 5.05pm to 8.30pm.
The Adnams Newmarket Nights programme, which has already seen UB40 perform, continues with British rapper Dizzee Rascal a week later on Friday, August 8.

Crowds are expected to go ‘Bonkers’ as he rolls out his reportoire of hits, which also include Dance wiv Me and Holiday.
Finishing off the season on August 15 will be 90s pop band Wet Wet Wet, best known for their number one single Love Is All Around.
Newmarket is also hosting popstar Peter Andre on August 23 for the conclusion of its Summer Saturday Live programme.
Amy Starkey, regional director east of Jockey Club Racecourses, said: “As befits The July Course every summer, we have a fantastic line-up of musical entertainment for the summer of 2014. Tickets have been purchased in advance in big numbers and we are looking forward to great days and evenings when flat racing comes together with music from Jockey Club Live.”
