Tommy Fleming, returning to Australia
Artist Network presents the ‘Voice of Ireland’ Tommy Fleming, returning to Australia in November to celebrate twenty years in the music industry and the release of his Platinum Collection.
Tommy brings his own beautiful interpretation of classic and contemporary songs such as Bridge Over Troubled Water, The Isle of Innisfree, Something Inside So Strong, “the best version of Danny Boy - bar none” (Eric Clapton),and many others you know and love.
His recording and performing credentials speak for themselves; with over 32 platinum albums under his belt and has already brought his mesmerising voice to audiences around the world, performing in prestigious venues such as New York’s Carnegie Hall.
But earlier in his career, shortly after securing a solo record deal everything looked set to flourish
when a near fatal car accident left the singer with a broken neck leaving his music career on-hold indefinitely.
After many months of convalescents, Tommy took time out to spend three months in famine-stricken Sudan, working with the relief charity GOAL.
Tommy returned to the stage having had to start over and is now regarded as one of the finest singers worldwide and is currently enjoying a hugely successful career spanning the last 20 years.
Returning to Australia for his third tour will delight his legion of Aussie fans with a reputation of drawing capacity crowds during his previous Australian tours.
“I love coming to Australia. I can’t wait to return because I love the people and the easy going way they live their lives and of course the weather,“ he says. “It really feels like my home away from home.”
Celebrating his twenty year anniversary in the music industry Tommy has released a stunning 3 CD, 40 track
“Platinum Collection” – now available in all good music stores around Australia.
Each album has its own, unique style – Including: “The Irish Collection”, “The Contemporary Collection” and “The Duet’s Collection”.
Containing songs spanning Tommy’s twenty year career including Tommy’s very first studio recording – Loving Hannah – recorded in 1991, this beautifully packaged 3CD set also contains previously unreleased tracks – making it the essential collection for Tommy Fleming fans.
