It was a great weekend for Hozier. On Friday he found out that his album ‘Wasteland, Baby’ went straight in at No.1 in Album Charts here in Ireland. And last night he also found out that it went straight to Number 1 in America in the Billboard 200 Album Chart.
Can’t quite put it into words. Thank you, so so much to the fans for this #1. This is handmade, homemade music and your support of that is everything. Thank you to my incredible team @ColumbiaRecords, @Rubyworks. Thank you to @CarolineAtMCD and Denis Desmond! #wastelandbaby pic.twitter.com/GTTzgla7xk

Hozier kicked off the ‘Wasteland, Baby’ Tour last night in the States which runs to the end of the year and is mostly sold out.
He will also return home for two Irish shows this Summer… at Independent Park, Cork on June 25th and Belsonic Festival, Belfast on June 27th.
