Green, green grass of Hyde Park: Sir Tom Jones to headline London show

Sir Tom Jones is heading for the green, green grass of Hyde Park to headline a major concert in central London.

The singer, who recently appeared as a coach on the BBC talent show The Voice, is topping the bill at one of the British Summer Time gigs.

He said: "I love playing in Hyde Park, it's such a beautiful place and so many of the greats have played there. There is a real sense of musical history and a fantastic atmosphere that comes with playing in the middle of a great London park on a wonderful summer evening."

Other acts lined up for the event on Sunday July 13 include Irish band Boyzone, X Factor winners Little Mix and veteran group 10cc.

The family-friendly event also includes performances by the team behind the Horrible Histories TV show and a Shaun the Sheep children's farmyard.

Other headliners at the event, which is held throughout July, include rock veteran Neil Young.

The star will be accompanied by his band Crazy Horse, with whom he has been regularly collaborating for four and a half decades, at the concert on July 12.
