Rodriguez Announces Second Melbourne Show!

Following the overwhelming interest already received during the ticket pre-sale for legendary singer- songwriter Rodriguez’s Australian Tour, a second Melbourne show at the Palais is now confirmed for Sunday October 26.

Pre-sale tickets for the new October 26 Melbourne show are available until 5pm today for members of the www.nicheproductions.com.au and www.ticketmaster.com.au mailing lists.

Tickets for all shows nationally go on sale at 12pm on Thursday August 28, with pre-sale tickets still available until 5pm today. For further details or to sign up to the mailing list please visit www.nicheproductions.com.au.

Rodriguez will tour Australia in October and November playing Brisbane (Convention Centre, October 19), Sydney (Sydney Opera House, October 21 and 23), Melbourne (Palais Theatre, October 25 and 26), Adelaide (AEC Theatre, October 29) and Perth (Kings Park & Botanic Garden, November 7).

Rodriguez’s unique story was made into an Oscar Award winning documentary in 2012 called ‘Searching for Sugar Man’. It tells the story of Rodriguez’s history that began with him playing in bars and clubs around Detroit in the 1960s, releasing two studio albums ‘Cold Fact’ (1969) and ‘Coming from Reality’ (1971), and ultimately reaching legendary folk-rock super stardom status in South Africa.

In the mid-1970s, Rodriguez’s music gained airplay in Australia and he toured here finding limited success. A self-taught guitarist, Rodriguez is 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.
