Tom Jones absolutely rocked the Old City of Dubrovnik last night in a mega concert. From gospel to rock, Chuck Berry to Little Richard and of course the vast majority of his own timeless classics, it has been a long time since Dubrovnik has seen a concert of this scale.
"This town is beautiful, this is the first time I have been here and I am in shock. How did they build it?” boomed Jones from the stage and was greeted with roars of approval. His energy, voice and stage presence saw the Welsh legend roll back the years.
The concert was organised to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Dubrovnik Summer Festival and if this was the opening page the rest of the festival has a tough act to follow. As Sex Bomb boomed out across the stone facades Dubrovnik enjoyed a night to remember. Although the concert was supposed to be limited to around a 1,000 guests the welsh legend could be heard, and indeed seen, by at least another 1,000 people.
You might think “it’s not unusual” to see such an amazing concert in Dubrovnik, you’d be wrong.
