Hozier Announces Biggest Ever UK & Irish Outdoor Headline Shows

Off the back of scoring his first ever UK number 1 album with Unreal Unearth earlier this year, Irish superstar Hozier announces the biggest UK & Irish headline shows of his career. Kicking off in July next year, the run of shows will see him perform huge shows including London’s Finsbury Park & Dublin’s Marlay Park. Special guests will be Brittany Howard & Lord Huron.

Next year’s shows come as Hozier has been tearing his way through a rapturous sold out US tour, including Madison Square Garden NYC, Red Rocks Amphitheatre Colorado, and will be finishing at the 17,000 capacity Hollywood Bowl, LA this Saturday.

With over half a million (500,000) tickets sold this year alone, Hozier will bring his massive international ‘Unreal Unearth Tour’ back to the UK and Europe in December, which will see him conquer sold out arenas, including London’s OVO Arena Wembley and 3 nights at Dublin’s 3Arena, which have all sold out already.

Hozier finds himself as one of the greatest songwriters in his field with a record in Unreal Unearth that has spawned world class tracks in Eat Your Young, All Things End, Francesca & De Selby (Part 2). In a week which saw incredible international chart success, he outsold the UK top 5 combined to score the top spot in Ireland.

Driven by the thought-provoking quintuple-platinum anthem Take Me To Church, Hozier’s self-titled full-length debut bowed at #2 on the Billboard Top 200 (the second biggest debut album of the year) and went on to achieve triple RIAA Platinum status. It enjoyed nine weeks at number 1 in his native Ireland (including spending an incredible 441 weeks in the Irish Top 50 charts). Indeed the album rose to no. 3 in the UK ahead of his third sell-out UK tour, while both Take Me To Church, and Someone New, were singles from the album.

The follow up to Hozier’s debut album, Wasteland, Baby! was released to massive critical acclaim in March 2019, entering the US Billboard Top 200 Chart at #1. The album’s 14 tracks (all original Hozier compositions) marked a major development in songwriting and subject matter. The most obvious is Hozier’s enlightened assessment of the global socio-political landscape. The multi-platinum selling album included the aforementioned single Nina Cried Power along with singles Movement, Almost (Sweet music), and Dinner and Diatribes.

Last year Hozier teamed up with God of War: Ragnarok’s composer, Bear McCreary to write the song Blood Upon The Snow, which was featured in the soundtrack for the game. The same year he also released Swan Upon Leda, in a statement shared alongside the release, the star explained that he was sharing the track as a way of showing “solidarity” with those fighting for reproductive rights.

With over 22 billion global streams, numerous platinum album certifications, multiple award nominations and wins, Hozier is recognised as one of the foremost singer-songwriters of our generation.

Tickets for the new dates go on sale Friday 24th March at 9:30am and will be available from www.gigsandtours.com / www.ticketmaster.co.uk
