Hozier announces Dublin, Belfast and Kerry gigs as part of European Tour

Tickets go on sale this Friday.

Fresh from his run of intimate live rehearsal shows at The Academy in Dublin, internationally acclaimed and platinum-selling artist Hozier has announced that he plans to play another five shows across Ireland during the month of December.

His forthcoming tour – which will be held in the run up to Christmas – will see the Wicklow native play Dublin, Belfast and Kerry before finishing up on 20 December.

The gigs are part of a series of shows across Europe, starting from 11 November.

Dates are as follows:

  • 15 December – The Olympia Theatre, Dublin
  • 16 December – The Olympia Theatre, Dublin
  • 17 December – The Olympia Theatre, Dublin
  • 19 December – The Ulster Hall, Belfast
  • 20 December – The INEC, Killarney

Tickets for all shows will go on sale this Friday, 21 September, at 9am via Ticketmaster and tickets are limited to four per person.

The singer, who has kept a relatively low profile for the past year, teased that he was gearing up to return to the spotlight back in June when he announced a run of North American shows for later this year.

"Very excited to announce the upcoming tour for later in the year, which will coincide with the releasing of new work," he said in a statement at the time.

"The completion of the record is fast approaching and I’m eager to share it with everyone."

The release of his new single Nina Cried Power soon followed, with Hozier telling Rolling Stone that the piece was his way of honouring the freedom-fighting singers of years past.

He recently announced his plans to drop his second as-yet-untitled album in early 2019.
