Tayto and tea? Welcome to Hozier's backstage rider


He has the music credentials to rival any rockstar - but Hozier's backstage demands are far from rock and roll.

The Bray singer was in the US this week to perform on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and instead of listing fancy restaurant fare and copious amounts of alcohol on his rider, Hozier asked the show to provide him with some home comforts instead.


Waiting backstage for the Take Me To Church musician were homegrown favourites including Tayto crisps, Dairy Milk chocolate and Barry's tea bags, as revealed on the show's Instagram page. "Behold. The fuel of my kinsmen fills the Hozier band-room," the photo was captioned.

The Wicklow man looks to have a busy few months ahead of him as he tours the US and Australia before Christmas.

Hozier also recently teamed up with big names including Noel Gallagher and Vance Joy to record a charity single called Boob Spelled Backwards Is Boob in aid of breast cancer awareness.
