Sydney Opera House concerts for Rodriguez
27 Aug 2014

On October 21st and 23rd this year, Sydney Opera House is set to be graced by performances from Sixto Rodriguez, the singer songwriter who was recently the focus of film Searching for Sugarman.

"I could not be any prouder in welcoming Rodriguez to the Opera House for his debut performances here," head of contemporary music Ben Marshall has said.

The Concert Hall at the Opera House will be hosting the two concerts from the singer this October, both of which have 9pm starts. He'll be presenting a set list featuring tracks from 60s album Cold Fact.

Now 72, he has performed in Australia before, first touring down under during the 1970s.

"His story is one of the genuinely incredible tales from the last 50 years of modern music and I’m thrilled we get to honour the man, his work and his long relationship with this country," commented Mr Marshall.ADNFCR-408-ID-801744902-ADNFCR
