Veteran singer Tom Jones refuses to retire from performing live, even though he is considering a quite life as he plans moving back from Los Angeles to his native Wales.

The 64-year-old crooner, who performs to sell-out crowds in Las Vegas four times each year, is determined to continue touring into old age.

However, Jones does acknowledge that there may come a day when his popularity wanes.

He says, "I haven't really got any plans to retire. I love performing and I'll keep doing it for as long as I can.

"But I hope I don't get to the bl**dy stage when I go past my sell-by date, when I can't sing songs like Delilah and BOY FROM NOWHERE.

"When I get older and I'm not doing so many shows, maybe I'll move back to Wales."
