It is with great pleasure that we announce that Jon Hopkins will be returning to Bristol, to perform two shows from the rescheduled Polarity tour.
Presenting his live show in a seated venue will present a fascinating challenge for both performer and audience. Polarity follows his incredibly successful Singularity tour, which saw him perform sold out solo live shows, festival dates, and DJ appearances across the globe. “Previously I had a set that was 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.”
Polarity traverses different musical territory to Hopkins' previous work, tethering together “the two disparate elements of harshness and fragility in [his] music,” and utilising seated venues for a more meditative and wider-ranging experience.
The performance will see him playing grand piano for parts of the show, where he will be joined on stage by a small group of consummate musicians and long-time friends: acclaimed producer and guitarist Leo Abrahams, violinist and arranger Emma Smith, and cellist Daisy Vatalaro.
Please note this is a seated performance, with two show times:
Doors : 17.45
