Hozier @ Red Rocks

Hozier brings his brand of crooning to North America, and stops in Denver ahead of the storm.

On tour to support his self-titled super album featuring the Grammy-nominated mega-hit, “Take me to Church,” Hozier flawlessly serenaded a 17-song set to a full-capacity crowd at the Ogden on Wednesday.

Hozier’s humble demeanor is a far cry from his impressive 6’5” height, neither of which hindered him from capturing the attention of the audience. Hozier gifted his eclectic catalog of songs to the intimate crowd with fervent passion.

Opening act, Icelandic singer Asgeir, was the perfect complement to Hozier’s performance, engaging the audience with his hypnotic and soothing melodies. With this dynamic duo, it’s no surprise that this 30-date North American tour quickly sold out.

Fans who know the album by heart were certainly not disappointed; and for those who bought a ticket based solely on their love of “Church,” they’ll undoubtedly know the album by heart when Hozier returns to an already sold-out show at Red Rocks this summer.
