.... the day has dawned, gentle hammerheads..... and in a scant few hours I'll be safely tucked away somewhere near the back of the historic Tennessee Theatre while a jiggling mass of breathless 40 & 50-somethings worship at the feet of Tom Jones..... not sure if y'all recall, but I mentioned the trepidation I felt when I purchased the tickets a while back..... and tonight is the night......

..... with any luck, he'll boogie woogie like he does in this little clip..... I sure hope that he does..... hell, I've never seen a Welshman move like that in real life.....part of me thinks that it just plain can't happen..... but witnessing that dance with my own two beady eyes would be worth the 70 bucks for admission - even if he didn't sing a note....

..... besides, if he really does dance like that, it'll be pretty entertaining when the paramedics arrive to haul off all the heart attack victims..... Knoxville may be hip, but it isn't exactly known for its hipshaking..... I have a feeling that Tom Jones is gonna rock the house.....

.... anyway, I'm off to the Big City..... you guys enjoy what's left of your Sunday..... I'm outta here....

Bullshit So Far

You gave 70 clams for that bullshit? Even in the big city, that's what they call a rip off.

I hope you won't be tossing your gotchies on stage.

I saw Tom in Cincy, many years ago. Whewwee! I never saw so many pairs of undies hit the stage in my life....and even better was when he split the back side of his skin tight pants out. Thought there was gonna be a riot right there before they could get him off stage. It was the best money I spent for a night of laughs in a long time.
Can't wait to read your account of his show.

I would love to see Tom Jones! I want all the details! Especially if he's getting granny panties thrown at him these days!

I'm not sure I'd chuck out that kind of dough--and being as Welsh as I am, the whole hip gyrating thing has always bemused me. The singing thing, no, since everyone knows the Welsh only came there from Ireland and converted to Christianity in the hopes of a good sing-song.

Oh my gawd, I used to be so in love with Tom Jones,,,,

I will never forget the time Mama Vi was listening to the tape I bought her of his greatest hits. She loved him, and had just got a new stero so hence the tape.

"I wouldn't kick him out of bed for eatin' crackers."

I about fell on the floor. I had NEVER heard such things from my sainted mother.

She would have been at that concert, in the front row, throwin' her panties. There's not a doubt in my mind.

Hope y'all had a good time. Like everyone else, I can't WAIT to hear this recap!

As one of Welsh descent, back in the day I could come pretty close to those dance moves. Now, not a chance.
