Sir Tom will be supporting Kelly Jones and the gang at Cardiff's Principality Stadium this December.

Sir Tom Jones has announced a massive homecoming show this Christmas.

The singer will support fellow Welsh rockers Stereophonics at Cardiff's Principality Stadium on Saturday, December 18, with Catfish and the Bottlemen also on the bill.

Called We'll Keep A Welcome, tickets for the show are priced from £45-85 and they go on sale this Friday, September 10 at 9am.

Gold's Hall of Fame: Tom Jones

Sir Tom and the Stereophonics have collaborated in the past, with Kelly Jones's band recording a cover of Randy Newman's 'Mama Told Me Not To Come' for Sir Tom's 1999 duets album Reload.

The album sparked a massive commercial renaissance for Sir Tom, topping the UK album chart and going quadruple-platinum in the UK and becoming the biggest selling of his career.

Other highlights included covers of Talking Head's 'Burning Down The House' (recorded with The Cardigans), Lenny Kravitz's 'Are You Gonna Go My Way' (recorded with Robbie Williams), and new song 'Sex Bomb' (recorded with Mousse T.).

Sir Tom and Stereophonics have dueted live several times, including at the Teenage Cancer Trust 15th Anniversary Year Concert at the Royal Albert Hall in March 2015.
