War Child presents Safe & Sound: Jon Hopkins (live)
War Child UK is proud to announce that Jon Hopkins will be headlining O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on 25th November. All proceeds will be going towards War Child UK as part of their Learn to Live Campaign and Ticketmaster will be donating a portion of the booking fee.
The critically acclaimed acts will be in esteemed company, joining the likes of Take That, Wolf Alice, Coldplay, Jessie Ware, Muse, Tinie Tempah, Florence + the Machine, Craig David, Ed Sheeran, Blur, Rag ‘n’ Bone Man, The Killers, Calvin Harris and Mark Ronson as artists to have played War Child’s heralded shows. The three nights will be raising funds to ensure that children affected by conflict in areas including Iraq, Jordan and the Central African Republic, are given the support they need in schools to ensure they can recover from the psychological trauma of growing up in an area blighted by war and learn to live again.
Jon Hopkins released his fifth solo album, Singularity, earlier this year, establishing him in the words of the New Yorker, as ‘one of the most celebrated electronic musicians of his generation’. Immunity (his 2013 hypnotic breakthrough album) and Diamond Mine (his collaboration with King Creosote) both attracted Mercury nominations, and his Monsters film score an Ivor Novello nomination. Already known as an expert producer and collaborator, as well as a remixer of artists as diverse as David Lynch, Moderat, Disclosure, Four Tet, Wild Beasts and Purity Ring, other recent projects have included scoring the prestigious Barbican production of Hamlet with Benedict Cumberbatch, collaborations with Natasha Khan of Bat For Lashes and Bonobo, and productions for London Grammar and Coldplay. His live shows have been in high demand this year with both Festivals appearances and Sold Out headline tours of North America and Europe. Hopkins will be fronting a special live performance alongside Alexis Taylor (Hot Chip) and more Special Guests to be announced at 02 Shepherds Bush Empire on 25th November.
