Tickets for the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre show go on sale this Friday at 10.
This morning, classically trained pianist turned electronic artist Jon Hopkins announced his upcoming tour, Polarity, set to take place in 2020. Hopkins made multiple stops in Ireland last year, including a headline set at Body&Soul and a stop at Vicar Street as part of his Singularity tour.
For this tour, his live shows will take place in seated venues, which will present a fascinating challenge for both performer and audience. “Right now I have a set that’s tailored to festivals and to standing crowds and intoxicated people,” says Hopkins, “and that’s been amazing. But I would say my deepest nature lies in the stillness, the meditative side of my music.”
The tour will see Hopkins stopping in Dublin on 6 March, 2020 for a show at Bord Gáis Energy Theatre. He will also play ay Royal Albert Hall London, Sage Gateshead, Brighton Dome, Salle Pleyel Paris, Helsinki Music Centre, and Berlin's Philharmonie, to name a few.
Fans can expect the show to weave together, “the two disparate elements of harsh and fragile in my music," explains Hopkins. "By going between the two, we’ll hopefully create some profound moments of stillness.”
Playing grand piano for parts of the show, he will be joined on stage by a small group of consummate musicians and long-time friends, consisting of acclaimed producer and guitarist Leo Abrahams, violinist and arranger Emma Smith, and cellist Laura Moody.
Tickets for the Bord Gáis show will be €40 inclusive of booking fee, on sale 13th September 2019 at 10AM.
