Tom Jones has given fans an early Christmas present by announcing December arena dates for his Ages & Stages tour.

The veteran Welsh performer is set to showcase his greatest hits spanning his decades-long career as he takes to the stage in the run up to the festive season.

Jones, 83, unveiled his plans on Monday when he posted: "Thrilled to announce I will be playing arenas across the UK this December. I cannot wait to bring my #AgesandStages tour to a city near you, it’s going to be lots of fun!"

Here's how you can get tickets to see the legend live.

When is Tom Jones on tour in 2023?

Fans of the Welsh crooner will need to be quick off the mark to get tickets as there are only five tour dates available — and they're sure to be in high demand.

Jones has announced that he will kick off his Ages & Stages arena tour on 14 December at Nottingham's Motorpoint Arena.

Then, he'll move on to the Resorts World Arena in Birmingham on 16 December, followed by a date at London's O2 Arena on 17 December.

His tour will continue at Glasgow's OVO Hydro on 19 December and will finish just before Christmas on 20 December at the AO Arena in Manchester.

Disappointingly for Welsh fans, he hasn't announced any new dates in his home land after a triumphant return there during the summer.

Jones has recently concluded the outdoor leg of the Ages & Stages tour, which took in dates at Cardiff Castle in July, as well as other packed venues across the UK and Europe.
