Tom Jones

"It took a while for Jones to get warmed up and he closed the show with a run through many of his tried and true hits. On surefire crowd-pleasers like "She's A Lady," "It's Not Unusual" and "What's New, Pussycat," Jones was in all his Vegas-style glory. The recital of many of the songs seemed a little too well-rehearsed but retained enough looseness to remain fun. Jones ' hair and beard are streaked with a little more gray than in recent years and his set length may be whittled to under ninety minutes but Jones knows how to finished strong. Prior to closing the night with hip-shaking covers of "Venus" and his Art Of Noise inflected version of Prince's "Kiss," he found a time capsule and broke out some vintage dance moves on "Leave Your Hat On." When you see a 67-year-old singer earn his thrown panties instead of getting them tossed his way solely on his reputation, you've seen something inspiring." [Earvolotion]
I think that paragraph sums up the key points. Throw in the full on crotch grab that slightly traumatized me, and Rachael Ray dancing up a story in the balcony, and you've got everything you need to know about Tuesday night's show at Terminal 5 (2/24). I think many in attendance would have been happier if the show was seated, like his next NYC one at the Beacon Theater will be. More pictures below...

Bacon theatre?

I think, by freudian slip, that BV has accidentally outed himself to be a closet carnivore. No one ever goes full vegan.

Hard to give up the pork.

My friend who had knee surgery did not take well to a standing concert. About a quarter way through Tom's set he told me "I'm not feeling it," meaning the performance. An older fat woman with a couple a missing teeth overheard him and couldnt help but say something. "Not feeling it?! So GO!!" she rudely said with half drunk swagger.

Far from the silver fox fans I was promised at this show.
