Tom Jones tops the bill at lavish Turkish hotel launch

Monday May 25, 2009

Welsh wonder Tom Jones was reportedly paid a cool £1 million to appear as one of the big name musicians lending their vocal talents to the launch of a luxury hotel in the Mediterranean at the weekend.

The Welsh crooner joined an impressive bill of performers on Saturday including Mariah Carey and British singer Seal entertaining guests at the opening party for the five star Marden Palace Hotel in Antalya, located on the Turkish Riviera. 

And it wasn’t just top musical acts who turned out to inaugurate the hotel. Stars including Richard Gere and his wife Carey Lowell, Monica Bellucci, Sharon Stone, and Paris Hilton - who came straight from the Cannes film festival - were also on hand for the grand opening of Europe's newest and most expensive luxury resort.
