Rodriguez Australian Tour Announced

Written by Nastassia Baroni on August 22, 2014

The now legendary Detroit-based singer-songwriter Rodriguez will head back to Australia this October and November for a string of national tour dates, which will include a long-awaited return to Perth stages.

The bluesman, who is of course the subject of 2012’s Oscar-winning documentary Searching For Sugar Man, will kick things off in Brisbane on Sunday, 19th October, before moving onto Sydney where he will play two very special shows at the iconic Opera House. The talented musician will then head to Melbourne, Adelaide and then wrap things up in Perth on Friday, 7th November.

A self-taught guitarist, Rodriguez has been outspoken about his fondness for playing to Australian audiences and first toured Australia in the late 70s, returning in 1981 when Midnight Oil joined him for some shows.

The enigmatic artist enjoyed a resurgence of fame and notoriety following the release of the Oscar-winning film and Rodriguez now tours extensively in South Africa, Australia, Europe, and the US, finding both long-time fans and a new generation of listeners.

See the tour details below.

UPDATE 29/08/14: Tickets for Rodriguez’s Australian tour have all sold out, and due to overwhelming demand a third show has been added for Sydney, Melbourne and Perth this November. See the updated tour schedule below.

There is also a venue change for Adelaide, with the AEC Theatre show on the Wednesday, 29th October, moving to the Entertainment Centre. For those who have already purchased tickets for the Adelaide gig, your tickets remain valid and there is no change to seating location.
