    Tom Jones performs during the live-broadcast of German TV show 'Wetten, dass...?' at the Messe Stuttgart. He will take his show on the road and play San Francisco.

    Tom Jones is taking his show on the road again.
     
    The 68-year-old singer will launch a U.S. tour in February to promote his new album, "24 Hours." And he will be in San Francisco on March 7. Tickets are available through Ticketmaster.

    Jones plans to play intimate clubs rather than sprawling arenas during the 15-date tour. And that's not the only change this time around.

    "I've just stopped dyeing my hair," he said.

    The white-haired Jones also said Thursday that he's learned a thing or two after touring and performing for more than 40 years. For one, he no longer does two shows a night: "You're working with tired (vocal) cords on that second show."

    And though women still tend to toss their underwear onstage while Jones performs, he's learned to pay it little mind.

    "I don't capitalize on it as much as I used to," he said. "I used to pick it up and do shtick with it and all that, which I stopped doing because it was encouraging it."

    Jones will open his tour on Feb. 24 in New York. A European tour will follow in the fall.

    Since he released the hit "It's Not Unusual" in 1965, Jones has sold more than 100 million records worldwide.
