Celebrating 25 years in the industry last year, Tommy Fleming is constantly reminded of how near he came to tragedy. In November 1998 after one of his shows, a car he was driving was involved in a serious crash – Tommy somehow walked away, crawling along the road in pitch-darkness to his home, only finding when he arrived the severity of his injuries. Covered in blood and in terrible pain, he had dislocated his shoulder and broken his neck – doctors told him he may never walk again. Assured he had been given a second chance for a reason, Tommy has toured the world endlessly ever since, determined to make the most of every day and to give something back to his legions of fans. Tommy has now announced two special dates around Mother’s Day in Glasgow and London, a chance to see the singer in stunning, intimate venues.
Described as The Voice of Ireland, legendary singer Tommy Fleming has announced two live dates in Glasgow and London to bring his acclaimed sound to his hugely loyal fanbase. Supporting his recently released live album, Voice of Hope II, as well as his latest studio release, All I Can, Tommy has become one of Ireland’s biggest-ever selling artists, with Youtube views of nearly 7 million and approaching 4 million album sales worldwide. These two unique dates at the suitably grand and inspiring venues of Glasgow’s Royal Concert Hall and London’s Union Chapel, promise to be unforgettable evenings in the company of one of the great interpreters of song.
The Voice of Hope II tour will be a special collection of spiritual inspirational music together with Tommy’s typically enchanting original songs. Tommy turns each song into his own with his own unique and powerful style touching emotions in you that only music can reach. Tommy is famous for his own arrangement of “Danny Boy” (described by Eric Clapton as “the best I’ve ever heard”) “Isle of Inisfree” and “Hard Times” all songs that you know and love but you have never heard them until you hear Tommy Fleming’s versions. He also covers songs like “The Town I Loved So Well” to “Bridge Over Troubled Waters”, “Green Fields of France” and “Something Inside So Strong” along with many more.
Released in October 2018, Tommy’s Voice of Hope II was recorded in the beautiful setting of Galway Cathedral and is proving just as popular as the hugely successful predecessor.
Tommy’s unique talent has brought him worldwide recognition with several sell-out tours in Ireland, UK, USA, Australia and Japan and he is now critically acclaimed to be one of the worlds’ finest singers of his generation. The mere mention of a Tommy Fleming concert has ‘sold out’ signs being displayed at venues from Dublin to Darwin within the space of minutes. He also toured & worked with the great Elaine Paige, Kenny Rogers, & Vince Gill, & Mark Vincent in recent years.
A Tommy Fleming concert is a musical experience not to be missed with one song more haunting than the other. He has a universal appeal to all ages and backgrounds with a fan base that is growing stronger worldwide year by year.
