Speaking to The Jordan Times, SouhaBawab, the executive director of FJF, said that “whereas no specific song list has been set for the concert, Tom Jones has promised to sing at least ten of his most famous songs. He is coming to Amman with a team of 32 people, including musicians, technicians and assistants”.
