    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.

    The POLARITY tour will bring together the two disparate elements of harsh and fragile in my music, in some of the most incredible concert halls in Europe. In the 18 years I've been releasing music, about half the stuff I've done has been beatless and meditative, but so far on this tour I've been focussing on the upbeat ravey side. For the Polarity shows I will have a grand piano on stage and be joined by my long-term collaborator / legendary guitarist Leo Abrahams, violinist and arranger Emma Smith and cellist Laura Moody. This will be the first time i've had the opportunity to explore both the techno side and the meditative side of my music on a full tour. T

    this should be fairly special-if anyone has a BGE presale code, please do feel free to share....

    Anyone know how to get a BGE presale code - I've got a BGE account but can't find anything on their rewards.

    Is it a generic presale code or individual?

    Pity you can't pick the row. It is giving the very first and second row. Should I wait or are these generally ok? Prefer somewhere more middling


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,069 ✭✭✭purple hands


    Hah yeah I was dithering on those rows too, but went for circle instead due to impatience!

    2hrs and 20mins!? Is that just his set or is there support too?

    Probably his set. Wouldn't be too surprising if there was an intermission.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2 Earthless


    Unfortunately can't make it to this, So I have 2 tickets in the circle section. Face value.
    DM me if anybody is interested


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,117 ✭✭✭El Director


    Would love to know the setlist from last night in Usher Hall. Not on setlist.fm yet. A few clips on IG and it really looks cool. Anyone else going to find it weird just sitting there for a Hopkins gig?!


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,117 ✭✭✭El Director


    FYI

    Actually reached out to someone on IG that was at the gig last night and this was her reply,

    “ The show was amazing, but really weird sitting down... it worked for the quiet sections but everyone was on their feet for most of it. There was a support (I didn’t really enjoy him but that’s just my opinion!!) so JH was on from about 9-10:30. Enjoy the show tomorrow!!”


  • Registered Users Posts: 952 ✭✭✭phunkadelic


    Hard to know if he is on at 8 or the support. I am guessing the support is at that time.

    I assume it’ll be the same as Gateshead so 9.

    Given the way the email was worded I thought it was a solid 2 and a bit hours of music.

    What time did he finish at? We had to leave around 10.45 unfortunately as had to get on the road

    He started 15 mins late* and the technical issues are up another 10 mins at least so wondering if he played til 11?

    *Obviously subject to change

    Did enjoy it nonetheless. Don't think the quieter music is done as well as others in the live setting, but can't fault the electronic stuff
