In partnership with Artists Den, Billboard is delving into memorable concerts put on by the live show series, as they explore the history of the venues the shows are held at and learn more about the artists themselves. In the latest installment, take a look back at Hozier’s 2016 show at Los Angeles’ The Theater at Ace Hotel, where the Irish singer and songwriter performed hits including “Take Me To Church,” “From Eden,” “Sedated,” and “Cherry Wine” – you can check out the latter above.
Speaking of “Cherry Wine,” Hozier recalled that he wrote the song to try to capture the “other side of love” and the “more terrible nature of love.”
“To some people, love comes in a lot of different kinds of shapes and sizes,” he explained. “Carole King had this song called ‘He Hit Me (And It Felt Like a Kiss),’ and it carries a similar sentiment to that.”
