RODRIGUEZ TO PLAY EXTRA CONCERTS IN CAPE TOWN AND JOHANNESBURG

Due to a phenomenal demand for tickets for the current Rodriguez International Tour, 206 Productions and Sugar Music have announced that extra South African dates have been added to the current Rodriguez CD Launch schedule. Rodriguez will be performing a series of concerts in Cape Town before heading off for his first two concerts in London which will take place on Friday 7th October and Saturday 8th October at The Forum in Kentish Town.

The promoters have now announced that Rodriguez will be playing an extra free concert in Cape Town at The Compact Disc Wherehouse at the V&A Waterfront on Saturday 1st October at 2pm.

The promoters have also announced that Rodriguez will now be returning to South Africa, after the London concerts, to perform an additional concert in Johannesburg at The Bassline in Newtown on Thursday 13th October. Tickets for this extra Johannesburg concert will be on sale at Computicket.

Prior to that, Rodriguez will also now be performing the extra free concert in Cape Town in addition to the three concerts already planned. Those three Cape Town concerts - two at the Independent Armchair Theatre in Observatory in Cape Town on Thursday 29th September and Sunday 2nd October, and one at The Dorp Street Theatre in Stellenbosch on Saturday 1st October - were all sold out very quickly, so the promoters have added the Free Concert which will allow the many disappointed Cape Town fans the opportunity to see the Detroit legend live in concert.

Tickets for the two London concerts have been selling out just as quickly with many of Rodriguez' South African, Australian and New Zealand fans being based in London. Rodriguez will be accompanied at all these concerts by The Blue Coins, a three-piece band, comprising Sean Ou Tim (drums), Sasha Sonnbichler (guitar) and David Broido (bass).

The 2005 Rodriguez tour is to launch his new CD compilation, 'Sugarman: The Best Of Rodriguez', which is being released in South Africa by PT Music, the independent SA label which has already released Rodriguez' two studio albums, 1970's 'Cold Fact' and 1972's 'Coming From Reality' aka 'After The Fact'. PT Music also recently released new remastered versions of both those albums.

'Sugarman: The Best Of Rodriguez' features 17 tracks drawn mostly from those two albums, plus three songs that only appeared on the previous 'Best Of Rodriguez' collection including the original 1967 version of the song, 'I'll Slip Away'.

Tickets for the London concerts are available c/o the Ticket hotline (London 24 hrs) - 0870 060 3777 Tickets are also now on sale at the Jazz Cafe and Astoria. For info about the London concerts please email: mailto:clem@touchskymedia.co.uk
