Hozier’s performance at the Beacon Theatre September 24th was an unforgettable experience. The show started out with a performance from the Irish Folk Duo Hudson Taylor. The group consists of two brother Alfie and Harry who grew up in Dublin Ireland and formed there duo in 2011. The performance was unforgettable and a great crowd warm up. Both brothers had incredible vocals throughout the whole set. Alfie was dancing as if the music was coming from him. It was very entertaining to watch the way both brothers moved on stage and interacted with the crowd. By far one of the best opening acts I have seen.
Along with his most popular hits like Take me to Church and From Eden Hozier mixed in his new music from his recently dropped E.P. He even surprised the audience and gave us a sneak peak at one of the songs off his highly anticipated new album. Hozier started out with a new song titled Nina Crowd Power an excellent upbeat song to start out the performance. By far my favorite two songs of the night are Jackie and Wilson and Cherry Wine. Jackie and Wilson has always been my favorite song from Hozier but I was surprised at the fact that his performance of Cherry Wine was my actual favorite of the night. Before he began the song the crowd was curious as to why the rest of his band was leaving the stage. When he announced that he was going to do an acoustic version of Cherry Wine where it was just him, a guitar, and an amazing red spotlight the crowd lost it. His performance for the night was flawless. Amazing vocals, light displays, and theatrics. A show to remember.
