Hozier has extended the US tour behind his recently issued second LP, Wasteland, Baby! The new fall trek runs from 3 November in Chicago through to 18 November Washington D.C. Tickets go on sale June 21st at 10 a.m. local time, while more information on all the dates is available at the artist’s official website.
The singer-songwriter’s ongoing North American run continues on 18 June in Los Angeles, followed by a run of summer festival slots, including Osheaga, Outside Lands, Lollapalooza, Newport Folk and the inaugural Railbird in Lexington, Kentucky.
Hozier’s fall leg kicks off on 17 October in Portland, Oregon, with previously scheduled dates booked through the month. Following the newly announced shows, the jaunt wraps with a five-night stint (21, 22, 23, 25 and 26 November) at New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom.
The Irish performer recently promoted Wasteland, Baby! with a video for ‘Almost (Sweet Music),’ styled as a visual tribute to the jazz era that inspired the track. In May, the Irish musician gushed about his love of TLC’s R&B-pop hit ‘Say My Name’ for Spotify’s Under Cover podcast.
“If you have been living under a rock, under a fossil, under a cavern, under just some long-forgotten lava pool under the Earth, if you’ve never heard it before, ‘Say My Name’ by Destiny’s Child is a rhythmically pleasing, melodically pleasing, magnificently vocally performed R&B track,” he said. “It’s a fantastic pop song and will live forever.”
