We’re delighted to be promoting Ólafur Arnalds’ biggest Manchester show to date – at the Bridgewater Hall!

Award-winning artist, composer and producer Ólafur Arnalds is back on the road following the release of his monumental album some kind of peace.

Ólafur’s performances continue to captivate audiences across the globe as he invites them to join him on a journey where he presents his most personal and raw music to date – being played live on stage for the first time ever. His haunting and often intensely emotional shows are an exercise in intimacy, a space for the artist and audience to share their vulnerability through music.

His tour in support of 2018’s re:member was met with high critical acclaim. With more than 150 concerts Ólafur played to hundreds of thousands of fans and sold out some of the world’s most iconic concert halls such as the Royal Albert Hall, Elbphilharmonie and Sydney Opera House.

Ólafur and his team of fellow craftsmen and musicians put on a spellbinding performance that brings together past, present and new material. His groundbreaking, self-playing Stratus pianos will be along for the ride – creating unexpected harmonies and surprising melodic sequences that make every performance unique.

some kind of peace is an album about letting your guard down, remarkable in its openness and its honesty. In light of everything that has happened these shows will undoubtedly feel especially meaningful.

This is an all ages show. Under 14s must be accompanied by an adult.
