Rodriguez Announces Australian Tour Dates With Archie Roach

Rodriguez, one of the most enigmatic and interesting artists in recent memory, has announced his return to Australia for a run of shows throughout November and December. All of the shows will see Rodriguez joined by our very own music luminary Archie Roach.

Australians seem to have ‘got’ Rodriguez before much of the world, who largely had to wait until the 2012 documentary Searching For Sugarman, bringing him Down Under for his first tour way back in the ’70s. The love still flows strong with the legend truly putting in the rounds upon his return which will include a stop off at A Day On The Green in the Hunter Valley.

Now more than four decades since the release of his debut album Cold Fact, the tale of Rodriguez remains as intriguing as ever. Lost in the noise of the Detroit scene at the time, Rodriguez first two albums were mostly swept under the rug. That is, until they made their way to South After where they would go on to give voice to the socio-economic struggles of the region.

The inimitable will also be performing at A Day On The Green where the two join the likes of Xavier Rudd and Russell Morris on the line up.

Archie Roach will be sporting his forthcoming new album Let Love Rule, set for release on September 23rd. As his tenth studio album, Let Love Rule is set to explore the theme of love.

“I wanted to write about love, or a willingness to love all people,” says Archie. “We are closing ourselves off and not letting people in. And not just in the sense of not letting them into the country, but not letting them into our hearts, into our minds. Many of the songs on the album are really a call for understanding.”

UPDATE 13/07/16: Rodriguez has announced a second Sydney show due to massive pre-sale demand.
