Jones had been scheduled to appear at the Convention and Exhibition Centre on April 7 this year, but 75-year-old Linda was diagnosed with cancer in the weeks leading to the show, forcing Jones to cancel his Asia tour. Linda died on April 10.

Jones, best known for the hits It’s Not Unusual, Delilah and What’s New Pussycat?, will now be performing at the Convention and Exhibition Centre on February 25.
