Rodrigo Y Gabriela announce December shows

Rodrigo Y Gabriela

Story by Jack Foley

MEXICAN acoustic rock guitarists Rodrigo y Gabriela have announced three hot ticket gigs to round off another tremendous year.

Kicking off at London’s Hammersmith Apollo, the dates also include shows in Glasgow and Manchester in December.

The dates are…

9 – London Hammersmith Apollo (£16.50)
11 – Glasgow Barrowland (£14)
13 – Manchester Academy (£14)

Rodrigo y Gabriela are one of the great word of mouth success stories of recent times. Steady touring, knock-out festival spots, quality press reviews, radio support from the likes of Jonathan Ross and Johnnie Walker and TV appearances on Later With Jools Holland and the BBC’s Glastonbury coverage has led to the duo emerging from the tastemaker shadows and into the broader spotlight.

One review of a recent festival performance stated: “Parts of their epic set are like a Balearic rave-up at the Cafe Del Mar; pulsating, hedonistic music where their boot thumps replace the beats. Other parts, meanwhile, suggest how “Led Zeppelin III” might have sounded if Jimmy Page had fixated on Segovia rather than Bert Jansch.”

Celebrating silver sales status of their self-titled album in the UK Rodrigo y Gabriela will be playing four shows at V Festival in August prior to a US tour throughout September and October.
