It is hard to believe that 10 years have passed since the first release of Tommy Fleming’s hugely successful album – Voice of Hope.
Many remember the night, 12th December 2004, as an incredibly moving and emotional occasion brought together by many elements but none more than the amazing venue – the world famous Knock Basilica. Tommy, together with his full band, the Cork Pops Orchestra, the Cill Aodain Choral Society and an audience of five thousand people, brought the Basilica to life.
The Basilica is not your normal concert venue and therefore the set had to be built from scratch – the set, the stage, sound and lighting all had to be brought in and assembled on site. It took four days to assemble the spectacular set for “Voice of Hope”. The Basilica, which seats 5000 people, was sold out weeks in advance of the show.
They say everyone has a few times in their life where they experience that one-in-a-million, incomparable moment and for Tommy, the concert in Knock Basilica was certainly one of those moments. It’s one of his most treasured memories that will stay with him forever.
The huge success of the concert is still evident to this day as ‘Voice of Hope’, following its release on 21st October 2005, has sold 1.5 million copies to date and is still one of the biggest sellers of Tommy’s now bulging repertoire.
Along with this, following the release of the CD and DVD, the concert was broadcast live on PBS television across the USA to an audience of 65 million and made Tommy Fleming a household name across the United States. The CD is on sale in the USA since August 2005 and reached number 5 in the world music charts. It has also been broadcast throughout Australia on ABC, Ovation and SBS Networks.
While Tommy’s music may be difficult to classify, fans use such words as “deeply emotional, romantic and sincere” to describe the feelings it evokes. One review described his music as falling into a genre of Symphonic Pop that still awaits a name.
Tommy’s unique talent has brought him worldwide recognition with several sell-out tours in Ireland, the UK, the US, Australia and Japan and he is now critically acclaimed to be one of the worlds’ finest singers of his generation.
Tommy will be touring Ireland January to March 2016 concerts in UCH Limerick, Cork Opera House, Bord Gais Energy Theatre, INEC Killarney, Clonmel, Galway, Millennium Forum Derry, Ulster Hall Belfast all details www.tommyfleming.net
