So with a gig date in common, we wondered if there was anything else these two may share? (prepare for some pretty revealing facts ... )
1. They are both in their 70s
Although Mr Morrison has just entered his seventh decade on the planet, he’s not far behind Tom who is 75 years old and still looking pretty good for his age.
2. They both have autobiographies
Van’s is called Can You Feel The Silence and Tom’s is called Tom Jones: Over The Top And Back.
3. They are both currently on tour.
While Tom’s may be a little smaller (with only two dates up until March 2016) Van is going full throttle with nine dates in the diary ahead of 2016.
