Today, after remarkable demand across the U.S. and Canada, GRAMMY® Award-nominated Diamond-certified singer-songwriter Hozier announced he has added Sacramento and thirteen new shows to his The Unreal Unearth Tour.
Tickets for the newly added dates will go on sale starting on Friday, February 2 at 12pm local time at Golden1Center.com.
The first round of shows announced on the Unreal Unearth Tour in 2024 sold over 500K tickets in a single day. New performances include a fourth and final show at New York’s Forest Hills Stadium, a third show at Los Angeles’ Kia Forum, and numerous new dates across the nation including Sacramento, California. Hozier first teased the announcement of added shows via social media this past Friday (HERE) and shared the news of his additional dates with fans on socials this morning (HERE).
Hozier has continued to hook audiences worldwide with his provocative, energetic, and organic live performances that span his extensive decade-long catalog of hits. He has stayed true to his ethos as his shows have grown into larger venues, continuing to draw inspiration from performing entirely live with his expanding band. Hozier’s unique connection with his audience has grown more apparent over the years and stems from the enduring intimate nature of his shows. His dedicated following of die-hard fans quickly showed their enthusiasm for his third studio album, Unreal Unearth, learning the lyrics to the songs through his live performances and singing along to every word prior to the release. Released August 18 via Columbia Records, the 16-track LP debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200 albums chart and follows a captivating thematic arc informed by the turbulence of the world and the fight for a better and brighter tomorrow. Unreal Unearth received both fan and critical acclaim, landing on various year-end lists with Rolling Stone, Billboard, Esquire, American Songwriter and more naming it one of the ‘Best Albums of 2023.’ Additionally, Hozier is featured on the re-release of Noah Kahan’s single “Northern Attitude” after the two debuted the collaboration in Nashville while on their respective headline tours. Listen HERE.

Hozier finds harmony and melody in the midst of chaos. The GRAMMY® Award-nominated Diamond-certified Irish singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist tunes into raw blues spirit, unrestrained soul, rock energy, and folk eloquence. At 22, he delivered a generational anthem in the form of “Take Me To Church.” It reached 13x-Platinum status and earned a rare Diamond certification from the RIAA, climbed to the #2 on the Billboard Hot 100, became one of the Top 30 “Most-Streamed Songs on Spotify,” and notched a GRAMMY® Award nomination in the category of “Song of the Year.” It paved the way for his 2014 full-length debut, Hozier, which debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 and went double-Platinum. The 2019 Gold-certified follow-up, Wasteland, Baby!, bowed at #1 on the Billboard 200 and spawned the Platinum single “Almost (Sweet Music)” as well as “Would That I,” which has been the featured sound of recent viral trends on TikTok.
With over 14 billion streams worldwide and countless late-night television performances, Hozier landed on President Barack Obama’s annual “Favorite Songs” list with “Nina Cried Power” featuring Mavis Staples, performed at The Kennedy Center Honors, and served up original compositions for everything from the blockbuster Legend of Tarzan to Sony Playstation juggernaut God of War: Ragnarök in collaboration with composer Bear McCreary. He’s collaborated with Mavis Staples, Annie Lennox, Tori Kelly, Maren Morris and MEDUZA. Additionally, Hozier has impressively sold over 1 million tickets globally – selling out legendary venues such as The Hollywood Bowl and Madison Square Garden, to name a few. This dyed-in-the-wool troubadour has never shied away from social commentary, addressing injustices suffered by the LGBTQ+ community, women’s rights, domestic violence, climate change, and the endless fight for social justice. However, he plunges into his most ambitious vision thus far on his third full-length LP, Unreal Unearth [Columbia Records], which debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200.
