Jon Hopkins comes to Bord Gáis Energy Theatre next March

We are delighted to announce that Jon Hopkins will come to Bord Gáis Energy Theatre next year. Presented by Aiken Promotions & U:Mack, he will bring his Polarity tour to our stage on Friday 6 March 2020. Tickets priced €41 will go on sale this Friday 13 September at 10am through Ticketmaster.

Taking in Royal Albert Hall London, Sage Gateshead, Brighton Dome, Salle Pleyel Paris, Helsinki Music Centre and Berlin’s Philharmonie – to name just a few – Polarity will, Jon says, tether together “the two disparate elements of harsh and fragile in my music.” He explains, “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.

Presenting his live show in seated venues 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,” he says, “and that’s been amazing, but I would say my deepest nature lies in the stillness, the meditative side of my music.”

Tickets priced €41 will go on sale this Friday 13 September at 10am through Ticketmaster.

All prices include a €1 facilities fee per ticket. Telephone & Internet bookings are subject to a maximum s/c of €7.15 per ticket/ Agents €3.40.
