The Sound Supports Rodriguez Live in NZ


The Sound & Eccles Entertainment, in association with Frontier Touring are thrilled to announce the return of acclaimed Sugar Man, Rodriguez, to New Zealand playing at the iconic Villa Maria Winery 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 one-off show. Adding to the excitement are local legends Dave Dobbyn, The Topp Twins and The Eastern.

Rodriguez has strong ties with 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. Rodriguez first toured New Zealand in the late '70s.

Nearly five decades after the release of his debut, Rodriguez’s incredible vocal and musical skill is finally being heard by audiences across Europe, the United Kingdom and North America, including festival audiences at Glastonbury and Coachella.
