Choirs performing during international rugby matches at the Principality Stadium are not permitted to sing Delilah by Tom Jones.
After eliminating it from halftime playlists in 2015, the stadium announced that choirs would no longer perform it.
A stadium representative acknowledged that the issue was problematic.
However, it has a long history of popularity among national team fans, and Jones has previously performed it before international matches.
A spokesperson for Principality Stadium stated: “The song Delilah will not be performed at international rugby matches at Principality Stadium.
“In addition, guest choirs have been instructed not to perform the song during pre-match performances and games.
“The WRU condemns all forms of domestic violence”.
We have previously consulted subject matter experts on the issue of censoring the song, and we are respectfully aware that the song’s subject matter is troublesome and upsetting to some followers.”
“One that amounts to simple virtue signaling meant to alleviate the existing pressure on the WRU,” he stated. “Calls to ban the song date back at least a decade, but the WRU has decided to act now.
Mr. Giffard stated that individuals desire “institutional change, improved working habits, and a more effective WRU complaints procedure.”
“Instead, they have decided to outlaw a popular Tom Jones song. This action will have no effect.”
