Rodriguez, star of last year’s surprise hit film Searching for Sugarman, is heading to Auckland and Wellington in March.
It is the ‘Crucify Your Mind’ and ‘The Establishment Blues’ rocker’s first ever visit to New Zealand.
Oscar-nominated Searching for Sugarman screened at the 2011 New Zealand International Film Festival. It is the story of two South African fans and their search over three decades to solve the mystery of their musical hero, Rodriguez. It received rave reviews here and around the world.
Rodriguez is performing at the Wellington Town Hall on March 16 and Auckland’s Logan Campbell Centre on March 17.
Tickets go on sale January 29.
