Legendary Welsh singer Tom Jones is heading to Napier in April.

The 'Delilah' hitmaker, whose career has spanned more than six decades, will play the Harvest Moon Festival on Saturday, April 6, 2024.

The one-day event takes place at Napier's McLean Park.

He will be supported by Kiwi talent including singer-songwriter Gin Wigmore and supergroup The Magnificent 7, which features the likes of Peter Urlich, Jordan Luck and Eddie Rayner.

Napier Mayor Kirsten Wise says the 'It's Not Unusual' star will be the "very first international headliner" to perform at the park.

"I am personally very excited and thrilled for our city - his voice, his hits, his huge personality are iconic and what better way to celebrate as a community than by welcoming him here to our gem in the middle of the city, McLean Park. This is a concert the whole community will get behind," she said in a statement.

Jones, 83, has sold over 100 million records throughout his illustrious career.

He was last here for a one-off show in New Zealand at Auckland's Vector Arena on March 19, 2016.

The Magnificent 7 consists of artists from The Exponents, Th'Dudes and Split Enz and was formed several years ago as "a good-time project to play the iconic songs of their respective bands".

Tickets go on sale from Wednesday, November 22.
