He'll well past the official age of retirement, but Tom Jones is certainly not hanging up his touring boots anytime soon.

In fact the living legend is planning two Irish gigs this summer, just before his 80th birthday.

The Welsh singer will play Belfast's Botanic Gardens on May 31st, and Cork's Live at the Marquee on June 2nd.

Judging by the setlist of his last tour, he'll be playing all the hits spanning his 50+ year-long career, too.

There's no word on whether a Dublin date is also on the cards just yet.

Tickets go on sale next Thursday, January 30th at 9am from usual outlets.
