Tom's music career thus far has encompassed over 200 live dates, including shows at iconic venues including O2 City Hall Newcastle, St David's Hall, Plymouth Pavilions, G Live, The Anvil and Sheffield City Hall. In late 2021 Tom toured the UK with legendary American soul group, The Stylistics, performing with them at 19 shows. Tom writes, records and performs his own songs both solo as Tom Cridland and also with The Tomicks.
As Tom's Elton Tribute, Tom plays all Elton's hits, 100% live, solo or with his band. Tom has an unparalleled love of Elton John's music, rhinestone encrusted tailoring and wearing sunglasses at night. In contrast to most of the modern day music industry, Tom plays with no backing tracks or lip-syncing at all. Indeed as Elton himself put it, "I think everyone who lip-syncs on stage in public when you pay like 75 quid to see them should be shot".
Tom also tours his Greatest Music of All Time DJ Sets. Tom might be no edgier than the man choosing the music at your Grandma's birthday party or over the loudspeaker at Walmart but that's probably because he was the man choosing the music... both at Grandma's bash and at Walmart's corporate do as well. All of Tom's DJ sets come with a money back guarantee that Tom will always play the best song of all time, "More Than A Woman" by the Bees Gees.
