It’s true, the acclaimed Sugar Man, RODRIGUEZ, is heading to Australia next February.
The legendary singer-songwriter and self-taught guitarist will bring his iconic blend of folk and psychedelic rock to our shores for a run of seven massive headline shows plus three very special A Day On The Green events.
Rodriguez has had strong ties to Australia and New Zealand ever since his music gained airplay locally in the mid-1970s, long before the rest of the world caught onto his talent thanks to Malik Bendjelloul’s Oscar-winning film Searching for Sugar Man. He first toured Australia and New Zealand in the late 1970s and later returned to Australia in 2014 then again in 2016 for a run of 14 shows and also released the iconic live album, Rodriguez Rocks – Live In Australia (out now through Inertia).
Joining Rodriguez on all headline shows (excluding Darwin, Auckland and all A Day On The Green shows) will be one of Australia’s finest voices, Sydney based and 3x ARIA Award winning, Sarah Blasko. Joining the bill in Darwin will be soul singer Caiti Baker, an A.B. Original collaborator and one half of electro-soul duo Sietta. A Day On The Green special guests include Xavier Rudd, Busby Marou, Pierce Brothers & Alice Skye.
Catch him at a day on the green at Rochford Wines on February 16 or at Margaret Court Arena, Melbourne on February 15.
