Tom Jones International

Tom Jones Fansite

Hi, and Welcome to TomJonesInternational — the only Tom Jones site with content written by fans, for fans. TomJonesInternational.com is not a fan club. TJI.com is the only site that cares about ensuring that fans worldwide — not just in one country— are treated with the respect they deserve! As such, it is the largest site in the world — not official or connected to OFFICIALTomJones but, nonetheless, representing the interests of fans and of Sir Tom.

Tom Jones Tom Jones

Since 2005 this website has served as a gathering place and newsroom for fans of Tom Jones. Even though Sir Tom lives in the USA and, at the time the the site was created, was doing the majority of his appearances here, TJI.com was created in 2005 because at that time there were no US-based websites dedicated to Tom Jones, except a "fan club" site that only posts what the site managers find on his official site and, even that, is seldom updated.

Recognizing that it is fans — and only fans — whose support has kept Tom Jones' career going for decades, TJI.com was created with the intention that all fans would be treated with respect, as would Sir Tom. Site content — including comments — is to deal solely with Tom's professional, public life. Discussion of Sir Tom's personal life — except celebrations like birthdays — will not be tolerated. TJI.com was created with the express intent of being an elegant companion to the OFFICIAL TomJones.com site.Please be sure to read the site rules before you post. These rules are strictly enforced in order to keep discussion fun and civil.

With the hope that you will enjoy TomJonesInternational and contribute your thoughts and ideas (contact info at bottom right) TJI looks forward to many more years of serving the worldwide Tom Jones fan community.

Sir Tom & Ed Sheeran in Australia This Weekend

Three videos of Sir Tom and Ed Sheeran in Australia this weekend.The shortest one is at the top. The one in the middle is longer and the bottom one is the longest.
Sir Tom comes in at 9:34 of the middle video.


Of Course, Sir Tom Does Not Call Him A “Dickhead.”

The press often creates a mountain out of a molehill and this is a prime example: Here, in Australia, he’s talking to footballer Campbelll Brown. Brown gives him a little gift, they laugh, shake hands and say goodbye. Sir Tom adds, “take care.” Those two words have been misinterpreted and many are saying Sir Tom called Brown a “dickhead.”

I believe that’s absolutely untrue. Listen for yourself. This is why journalists get a bad name.

A Stupid Comment From A “Fan:”

Moderator’s Note: This isn’t the first email like this (or from this person). She is a horrid woman….Of course, I can delete what I want to delete. I own the site. If she read the next post she’d have seen the correction. This email is not from “Annee.” It’s from Tanya, the TJ stalker. She’s a sick cookie and repulses everyone. Wish she’d leave me alone. Instead, she just keeps going. Pathetic. One of her email addresses is below. Feel free to write her.

Her email was sent, by the way, from Ohio.

And, as we know, it’s people like her who give fans a bad name. If this is a fan, no wonder fans have no credibility with those who make career decisions.

As for leaving that article, I did so because it’s so odd that journalists continually mistake Sir Tom’s sister for his wife. And,, it wasn’t Tania Or Annee or “Shirt” who got that article corrected. I know that for a fact. She has no standing with the UK press (or any press) to get anything changed. She is a liar.

Comment:
Your ‘leader’ Ellen is delusional. She picks and chooses what’s posted and deletes at her own choosing. She sends out ignorant and childless emails reprimanding like she’s Tom’s personal secretary. She’ll delete this too.
Ellen…… If you had any intelligence and thought clearly instead of obsessed you would omit that entire article from your Timeline instead of leaving it for people to continue posting about it. You are doing further damage and disrespect for keeping it posted. Furthermore……..who do you think got that article corrected? A little fairy ? I hope one of your followers sees this before you delete so they can see what nitwit you are. Don’t send me another email either…..I have no interest in any ranting that your delusional words have to say. Think before you speak next time.


OK: This is enough. Someone named Barbara with an ISP in Rochester, NY, wrote that, were Tom to see all this, he’d “let people know she [Ellen] does nit (sic) represent him in any way.”

To be clear, I never claimed to represent Sir Tom, to work for him or to have anything to do with him except as a fan.

If you saw on this site that I made any claims to a personal or business relationship with Sir Tom, please email me at the “contact” link at right. Otherwise, please pay attention to what you read….and do not read. Thank you very much.

Finally, apologies for anything I wrote that annoyed you. Some people just continue to harass me, to write rude (sometimes even threatening) emails. And it makes me angry. So I respond. I do not respond to about 10 such emails/comments for every one to which I do respond.

Sir Tom Goes Down Under Again For AFL Final & Melbourne Gig

Tom will do the event with Ed Sheeran. Now how about both of them at the Superbowl? (This video — with the wink and all — is a tad precious, but it is nice to see something with him being promoted.)


Tom Jones To Play Melbourne Concert
The Music

Veteran crooner and throwback Simpsons guest-star (remember that?) Tom Jones has announced that he will perform a one-off show in Melbourne next week — supported by resurgent Aussie troubadour Lanie Lane — in the lead-up to his appearance at the AFL Grand Final on September 27.

The man made famous by hits such as What’s New, Pussycat? (and a billion other songs) will now take to the Forum Theatre on Wednesday, September 24, ahead of his weekend soiree at the footy. As par for the course, fans will be treated to a range of tracks from the acclaimed singer’s extensive, colourful back catalogue — you know, which he’s only spent the past half-century compiling — as well as newer material drawn from 2012’s Spirit In The Room LP and its predecessor, Praise & Blame (2010).

He’ll be joined by the ever-luminous Ms Lane, who has a new album up her sleeve — Night Shade — set for release on October 24, via Ivy League. It’s been a little while since we’ve heard much from Lanie’s camp, so her return to the limelight with her new album and support slot for Jones should prove a most enlightening experience for those fortunate enough to be in attendance.

Tickets for Tom Jones’ Forum Theatre show will be available for purchase from 10am this Friday, September 19. If you can’t make that show, you’re not totally out of luck — following his Grand Final appearance, he and young buck Ed Sheeran will be putting on a free-entry, post-game celebration show for all and sundry. Entry is via gates 4-6 from 6pm, September 27.

A Dated, Satiric Tom Jones Acrostic (The 1st letters in each line form words).

Tonight I had the privilege/pleasure of attending a VIP screening of a doc called I Am Ali about the boxer. Key in Ali’s life and in this doc is Tom’s friend Gene Kilroy, who was once Ali’s business manager. Tom is in the film talking about his photo session and “fight” with the Champ. I am not generally a boxing fan, but this is a must-see, a very human, private look at a very public life. It’s wonderful. It opens in a week or two, depending upon where you are. It is about a jock but it is definitely not a movie just for guys.

Below is some silliness from an alleged humor website. It was written sometime between 1998 and 2007.

The Tom Jones Acrostic Poems

By Julie Wiskirchen | Apeculture.com

tomcigar2
Pussycat, pussycat

As I do my pelvic thrust

Nymphs chuck their knickers

Toward my general direction

I wipe the sweat off my brow

Ever so sexily with a red lace bikini and then toss those

Skanky undies back to the crowd

tomstairs

Kiss…women and girls rule my world, act your age

Not your shoe size

I am bathed in sweat

Can you see the bulge in my pants?

Kiss…don’t be too flirty, mama, I know how to undress me

Eager nymph tosses her panties at me

Reach to pick them up and then use them to wipe the

Sweat off my brow and toss them back at her!

tomspeedo-2

Tom’s

Huge

Outta-control

Nuclear

Gonads

The New Version of Sex Bomb & The TJI.com Sept. Question of the Month

Here’s Tom in a video by Frederikke Busch performing in Randers, Denmark on August 27. What do you think of this version and why do you think he changed it (as he did “Delilah” and “Green Green Grass”)?

TJI August Question of the Month: Tommy Iommi or Someone Else?

Lots of press buzz about Sir Tom recording a duet with Black Sabbath co-founder/guitarist/songwriter Tommy Iommi. So, the TJI.com Question of the Month for August is:

Do you think the duet will happen? And, even if it does, with whom else would you like to see Sir Tom do a duet?

Playing Catch-up on TJI

dylan yellow hatHi: Back from almost a month away in NY with my family but without a computer and, in this case, an iPad with a keyboard didn’t cut it. (Four month-old Dylan is pictured left. She an her mom are wonderful. Got to catch up with some TJ friends, especially Mary and Patti.)

In the news, Sir Tom is wildly successful on his outside-North-America tour. He’s been primarily in the UK, but is soon heading to France, Denmark, Norway and España. He’s also played Luxembourg, Switzerland, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and is doing a private gig or two along the way. A good friend of mine is working with him on one of those. Tough life, huh?

He Said What??? Article From Wales Online And There Will Be A Voice Spin-off on BBC 2

Moderator’s Note: Just came across a treasure trove of TJ photos and thought again of doing a calendar (I didn’t have a computer with adequate memory last year. Now I do.). Interested? Let me know. Of course, I don’t have prices, but it will be a bit more expensive than it was. If you are interested in a calendar? Please email me


He said what? 10 great quotes from Sir Tom Jones

As the superstar singer returns to Wales for a gig at Chepstow Racecourse, we trawl the archives for some of his most memorable comments

WalesOnline | Jul 02, 2014 13:58 | By Karen Price

Screen Shot 2014-07-02 at 2.42.37 PMAs the superstar singer returns to Wales for a gig at Chepstow Racecourse, we trawl the archives for some of his most memorable comments

Judge Tom Jones will be joining Zoe Ball on the BBC2 spin off show

Moving back to Wales

“I have considered getting a house in Wales again but I’m just so busy. But maybe I can do it when I get a bit older and I won’t be doing so many shows.

I had a house in Cowbridge for a while but we were not there enough so it wasn’t really being used.”

TV show The Voice

“I always wait to the last minute to decide (whether to return as a judge). The first two seasons I had so much fun. I didn’t think there could be a better show.

But this third season is pretty freaking awesome. It would be best if it returned with Kylie. I like this combination. We’ve found the gel.”

The Welsh image abroad “I think Wales is starting to lose its image as a coal mining country. But I know for a fact that people now know Wales as the Land of Song – they know people love to sing.

So music is the thing people think about now when they think of Wales.”

Going grey “I was looking at a couple of TV shows and I was thinking: ‘Christ, my hair does look dyed.’ It didn’t look natural any more, plus it was picked up a couple of times in reviews.”

The Welsh Government “I’m not a separatist. I think that united you stand and divided you fall. I think Wales should definitely be represented but I don’t think it is big enough to go it alone.”

Knicker throwing: “At first it was sexy. Women would just rip items of clothing off and throw them but it ended up becoming a bit of a giggle. I don’t know what happens to them.

I used to capitalise on it a bit, you know, pick them up and wipe my brow with them and stuff.”

Famous pals “Richard Burton was a great Welshman – he flew the flag a lot. Every time I was with him he would say, ‘We are Welsh!’

We were in Germany one time and I had to say, ‘Take it easy Richard!’ He was very patriotic.”

Becoming a US citizen “If I really wanted to become an American citizen I would have done it a long time ago.

I’m British and I have a British passport and if I can remain that way, that’s the way I like it.”

Career plans” “I want this to go on as long as I can. The only thing is time will catch up with me eventually. So I want to get as much in as I can.

I’m not ready to retire yet. I’m not done yet. I want to do it because my voice is still as strong as ever.”

On where he wants to be buried: All roads point to Wales for me – that’s the way it is. It’s just one of those things. I spent the first 24 years of my life in Wales and I loved it and have never really left.

So I would want to be buried in Glyntaff Cemetery in Pontypridd – all of my forefathers are there.”

Tom Jones plays Chepstow Racecourse on Friday, July 11. For full details, call 01291 622260 or visit Chepstow Racecourse’s website.

As for the “spin off show” mentioned above, there will for some reason be a spin-off of The Voice on BBC 2
