Sir Tom Jones has tweeted his disappointment after a power failure cut short his concert at Alnwick Castle on 8th August.
In a statement via his website, he said:
Tom Jones would like to sincerely apologise to all his fans for the abrupt ending to his concert at Alnwick Castle on Saturday evening.
A loss of generator power supply at the beginning of the night meant a delayed start to the concert and unfortunately, after continuous problems during Tom’s performance, a further loss of power meant the concert ended abruptly.
Tom really enjoyed performing to the North East crowd and was extremely disappointed that the concert ended in this manner.
Tom looks forward to returning to the North East for a concert in the future.
