Rodriguez Announces Australian Tour
In the midst of the hype surrounding groundbreaking documentary Searching for Sugarman, Sixto Rodriguez has astutely announced an Australian tour, with surf rock band The Breaks in support. After selling out shows in both Melbourne and Sydney during 2010, the man responsible for gems such as ‘I Wonder’ and ‘Sugar Man’ is back to mesmerize audiences with his brand of endearing folk.
Searching For Sugarman has only recently launched Rodriguez into international spotlight, with his humble yet incredible story earning accolades at both Sundance and Melbourne Film Festivals. The adventure of two South African fans trying to uncover the truth behind his mysterious on-stage “suicide” becomes a heartwarming fairy-tale when they dive deeper into the lyrics behind Rodriguez’s albums.
Performing material from albums Cold Fact and Coming From Reality, Rodriguez will also be joined on-stage by members from Midnight Oil, Violent Femmes, and Hunters Collectors, subsequently creating one of the most experienced and acclaimed musical super groups to ever grace our shores.
Tickets can be purchased here for Rodriguez’s show at The Arts Centre March 22nd.
