Tom Jones hit 'Delilah' banned from Wales rugby matches due to 'problematic' nature of song

    Tom Jones' "Delilah" will no longer be played at Welsh rugby matches.

    (CNN)Choirs have been banned from performing Tom Jones' hit "Delilah" during Wales' international rugby matches at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff due to the song's "problematic" nature, the UK's PA Media reported.

    The lyrics of the 1960s hit, which was taken off the half-time entertainment list at the Principality Stadium in 2015, allude to a woman being stabbed by her jealous partner.
    The Welsh Rugby Union (WRU) and Principality Stadium only announced this week that the song has been removed from the venue's playlist.
      "Delilah will not feature on the playlist for choirs for rugby internationals at Principality Stadium," a Principality Stadium spokesperson said, according to PA Media.
        "Guest choirs have also more recently been requested not to feature the song during their pre-match performances and throughout games," the spokesperson added.
        "The WRU condemns domestic violence of any kind.
        "We have previously sought advice from subject matter experts on the issue of censoring the song, and we are respectfully aware that it is problematic and upsetting to some supporters because of its subject matter."
          CNN has contacted the WRU, the Principality Stadium, and a representative for Jones for comment.
