Tommy Fleming: Voice of Hope II Tour
Tuesday 7 April, 7.30pm
For almost 30 years, Tommy Fleming has been honing his craft and entertaining the masses with his extraordinary talent. His worldwide success has made him a household name in many homes across the globe and his fanbase is growing year on year. It’s not hard to see why; music is a universal language and one Tommy is undoubtedly fluent in.
The one comment that is repeated from Dublin to Darwin and beyond, is the incredible effect Tommy’s voice has as he turns each song into his own with his unique and powerful style – touching emotions in you that only music can reach. 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 reviewer described his music as falling into a genre of Symphonic Pop that still awaits a name. A Tommy Fleming concert is a musical experience not to be missed that has a universal appeal to all ages and backgrounds.
Tommy is famous for his own arrangement of Danny Boy, Isle of Inisfree and Hard Times – all songs that you know and love but have never heard until you hear Tommy Fleming’s versions. He also covers songs from You Raise Me Up, Bridge over Troubled Waters, From a Distance and Something Inside so Strong along with many more contemporary numbers.
Nick Mason's Saucerful of Secrets - More Games For May
Thursday 14 May, 7.30pm
Nick Mason’s Saucerful Of Secrets are – Nick Mason, Gary Kemp, Guy Pratt, Lee Harris and Dom Beken.
Nick Mason’s Saucerful Of Secrets played their first gigs at four intimate and acclaimed live shows at London’s Dingwalls and The Half Moon in Putney in 2018, these were Nick Mason’s first live musical outings since Pink Floyd’s Division Bell Tour in 1994, and the show at Dingwalls was his first since Pink Floyd played at the 2005 Live 8 concert in London.
The band went on to sell-out theatres around the world including three nights at London’s Roundhouse, where Pink Floyd played some of their most revered early shows in the 1960s. The 2020 tour will see the band further expand their repertoire and will play songs from Pink Floyd’s early catalogue up to the 1972 album, Obscured by Clouds.
On 12 September, Nick Mason was named Prog Magazine’s Prog God at the prestigious Progressive Music Awards at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, previous recipients include Peter Gabriel, Tony Banks, Jon Anderson, Rick Wakeman, Ian Anderson, Carl Palmer and Steve Howe.
