Having just completed a small run of intimate, acclaimed and sold-out charity shows, Hozier has announced his forthcoming tour of Europe and the UK – including a date at London’s Eventim Apollo. The tour will see Hozier and his band perform his biggest shows in over four years – and is his first tour since releasing his celebrated new EP, Nina Cried Power . Acclaim for Hozier’s recent shows and newly-released music has been widespread. The Guardian dubbed the lead single, Nina Cried Power, as ´´startling”, with The Evening Standard commenting in their 5 live review that ´´Hozier’s watertight backing band wreathed the choruses in four-part harmonies, elevating his new songs into the realms of the celestial”. Consisting of four brand new tracks written and performed by Hozier, the EP’s lead single features legendary soul / gospel singer, Mavis Staples, with iconic musician Booker T Jones on organ.
