Tommy Fleming is bringing his 30th anniversary tour to Claremorris Town Hall Theatre this Friday, February 18.
The popular singer’s his latest album, ‘All These Years’, reflects on his 30 years in the music industry, revisiting many moments he has found poignant throughout his lengthy career.
Over the decades, Fleming has enjoyed a loyal following, gaining more and more fans along the way and performing sell-out shows in Ireland, the UK, Australia, Japan and the US. He has also shared the stage with big industry names like Elaine Paige, Kenny Rogers, Christy Hennessy, Phil Coulter, De Dannan, Mark Vincent, Vince Gill and many more.
The Sligo singer’s solo career all began in Mayo – in Westport to be exact. Fleming was once lead singer with a band called Jarrog, and in 1993, after singing four songs at a charity event in The Towers at Westport Quay, he was approached by singer and producer Phil Coulter, who was in the audience. The rest is history.
While Tommy Fleming’s music may be difficult to classify, fans describe it as ‘deeply emotional’, ‘romantic’ and ‘sincere’. One review described his music as falling into a genre of symphonic pop that still awaits a name. Whether it is his famous arrangement of ‘Danny Boy’ or his latest co-written duet with Conal Early ‘The Bend in the Ocean’, Fleming gives each performance his all and keeps his audiences coming back for more.
