Will Young will replace Sir Tom Jones at BT London Live in Hyde Park tomorrow (July 28), after the veteran singer was forced to pull out due to a nasty chest infection.
Tom is regrettably avoiding the huge event after being told by experts he is too ill to perform.
Will Young has gladly stepped in, filling the gap in the concert's line-up at very short notice. He said: ''I'm sad that Tom Jones can't do the show, I hope he gets well soon, and am very happy and excited to be playing Hyde Park for the Olympic events tomorrow''.
Will is set to appear on the main stage at the London venue, in between broadcasts on giant screens showing the best of the day's sporting action.
Newton Faulkner is also scheduled to perform tomorrow. Tom has also had to pull out of two other performances because of his illness.
The 72-year-old Welshman apologised to his fans on twitter but said it was doctor's orders that he stay in. He wrote: ''Sadly I have contracted a chest infection w/bronchitis & due to doctors orders I've had 2 cancel tomorrows and Sundays show. Sorry to all x ''
He went on: "Thanks for all the lovely messages, I don't know if everyones understanding and support is making me feel better or worse! You're the best! (sic)''
Get better soon, Tom!
