Jon Hopkins, known for three beautifully crafted albums including Insides (released through Double Six Records in May), as well as his production and co-writing work with Brian Eno, Coldplay, King Creosote and David Holmes, can now announce a European tour for the autumn.

Jon Hopkins albums demonstrate a huge range of powerful emotion and texture, all informed by great musical intelligence and electronic wizardry. Live, Jon takes things to the next level. His intense and schizophrenic performance can bring you from the extremes of tender, acoustic piano to bassy, grimy techno.  

Jon’s forthcoming tour includes four dates in the UK and Northern Ireland, with a very special show at King’s Place in London on October 8th.

As part of Beyond The Loop Festival - a four day event celebrating leading British artists who blur the edges of contemporary classical and electronic music - Jon will be joined by violinist David Rossi (Trentemoller, The Verve) as well as genius guitarist Leo Abrahams (David Byrne, Nick Cave, Jarvis Cocker). 

Look out for a brand new Jon Hopkins EP in November – details to follow.
