Tom Jones is set to play a free gig this afternoon(November 19), when he busks on London’s South Bank from 3pm.

The Welsh singing star is being filmed for the Culture Show, part of their occasional British Busking Challenge and Jones will perform in front of the Royal Festival Hall, or in the nearby skate park if it’s raining.

The singer, whose new album ’24 Hours’ is released this week, will busk three songs using only an acoustic guitar,
the first time he has performed in this manner in several years.
