Rodrigo y Gabriela to perform at Vina Robles
–Mexican acoustic rock-maestros Rodrigo y Gabriela are set to continue their triumphant US touring run this August, as they celebrate the tenth anniversary re-release of their classic self-titled break-out album. The duo will perform live at the Vina Robles Amphitheatre on Aug. 3.
Originally released in Ireland in 2006, the album topped the charts ahead of Johnny Cash and the Arctic Monkeys, and a US release on ATO Records followed in 2007. “Rodrigo y Gabriela” was produced by Rodrigo and Gabriela with John Leckie, best known for his work with Radiohead and The Stone Roses. Affectionately known to fans as “the Crocodile album”, the record has gone on to sell 750,000 copies worldwide.
The global success of the album, together with endless touring, established Rod & Gab as one of the most popular acoustic instrumental artists in the world, with a string of sold out tours of America, UK, France and Japan, including multiple nights at the Royal Albert Hall, Hammersmith Apollo, Le Zenith (France), Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Radio City Music Hall (NYC) and the Hollywood Bowl.
In 2016 alone, Rodrigo y Gabriela played in 25 countries around the world, including their debut tour of South America.
