Irish singer-songwriter Hozier set an impressive record when playing at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center on Sunday, May 19th. Not just that, but you can win tickets to see Hozier later this summer at Bethel Woods!

Hozier Sells Out Saratoga Performing Arts Center

Tens of thousands of fans were mesmerized as they watched Hozier take the stage at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center on May 19th. The Irish singer-songwriter easily held the attention of a sold-out audience of over 25,000 in his Sunday night performance.

The audience at SPAC helped Hozier set a new personal record! Hozier's SPAC show is officially his largest ticketed US show! Hozier said, “I’ve been reliably informed that this is the largest ticketed show I’ve ever done in the United States. It’s a special one for me. Thank you so so much. It’s such a joy.” He treated the crowd to that fresh fan-favorite towards the end of his 17-song set, not including the encore. Three albums into his career, his chosen setlist was an alchemy of his most popular chart darlings, older deep-cuts from the self-titled album and 2019’s “Wasteland, Baby!” and newer gems.

Hozier wrote the album during the COVID-19 pandemic and stated it was his way of "mak[ing] sense of the experience of the last two years". It was inspired by Dante's Inferno, which he began reading at the time; he framed the album around Dante's concept of the nine circles of Hell. He called the album "quite eclectic" and stated that there is "something of a retrospective in what the sounds lean into."



You can hear music from this new album, plus all of your Hozier favorites if you win a pair of tickets to see the show at Bethel Woods on July 27th, 2024. Tickets will be on sale as of November 17th, 2023.
