South Africa are you ready for one of the most well known recording legends in music history? Mexican-American singer/songwriter Rodriguez is in S.A. to perform 4 shows in Cape Town and 5 shows in Jozi this February 2013!
Rodriguez who allegedly disappeared into the unknown for many years after the unsuccessful launch of his album Cold Fact and was even rumoured to have set himself alight on stage in order to end his life – it turns out that all those rumours proved to be so wrong.
Two enthusiastic South African fans started searching for their hero – this led them to a story more extraordinary than any of the many myths they had heard. Their story along with the abundance of content collected formed the basis to produce a documentary – Searching For Sugarman – A massive hit at last years Sun Dance Film Festival winning the World documentary audience award and a special Jury award. Searching For Sugarman has received raving reviews from South African fans unsurprising as we were the country that after all these years kept his story alive.
Rodriguez is set to rock Johannesburg on the 12th, 13, 15th, 16th and 18th of February at the Big Top Arena, Carnival City and Cape Town on the 9th, 10th, 20th and 21st of February 2013 at Grand Arena, Grandwest.
