It wouldn’t be unusual for Tom Jones to play Glastonbury 2020

Could Sir Tom Jones return to Glastonbury Festival for the 3rd time?

Tom Jones announced him and his band will be “playing some special shows this year”, and by doing so, entered the rumour-mill as one of the acts possibly set for playing Glastonbury 2020 later this summer.

Jones mentioned that 2020 is going to be a very special year for him, as it marks 55 years since the release of his debut single ‘It’s Not Unusual’, and of course his 80th birthday in June – which coincides perfectly with Glastonbury’s 50th-anniversary celebrations, set to take place from Wednesday 24th to Sunday 28th June.

Looking at the Welsh singer’s tour dates over the Glastonbury weekend – which sees him play Tempodrom Berlin, Germany on June 25 (Thursday), and QE2 Arena Telford, UK on June 28 (Sunday) – one could speculate that it wouldn’t be that unusual for the Grammy Award winner to play either the Friday of the Festival (June 26) or the Saturday (June 27).

Jones is no stranger to the Worthy Farm-held event and played Glastonbury twice before, with the first being 1992, followed by a performance in 2009 – both times saw him take to the Pyramid Stage on the Sunday of the Festival.
