Tom Jones defiantly continues to sing Delilah after ban from Welsh rugby matches
GMB: Tom Jones shocked by Delilah controversy says pundit
Sir Tom Jones has refused to give into the so-called “woke” decision about his song Delilah being banned at Welsh rugby matches.
In February, it was announced by the Welsh Rugby Union that the 1968 track would no longer be performed by choirs at the Principality Stadium due to its connotations to domestic violence.
The decision was linked to the lyrics of the song, which describe a man murdering his girlfriend after she is caught with another man.
Tonight, the 83-year-old brushed off the controversy and sang the hit with full passion at Sandown Park Racecourse in Surrey.
His performance was met with cheers from his loyal fan base who were also heard singing along to the classic.
