Rodrigo Y Gabriela

Story by Jack Foley

FOLLOWING the release of their new album 11:11 and their already sold-out show at Koko this September, Mexican acoustic rockers Rodrigo y Gabriela will return to Britain for their first UK tour since December 2007.

The instrumental magicians will bring their unique twin-guitar assault to the following venues (all November 2009):

23 – Hammersmith Apollo
24 – Birmingham Academy
26 – Glasgow Academy
28 – Manchester Apollo
29 – Bristol Colston Hall

Tickets are now on sale. They cost £20 for London, £18 for Bristol and £17.50 at all other venues. Wallis Bird is confirmed as special guest.

The dates are part of a larger European tour in support of Rodrigo y Gabriela’s new studio album 11:11 which is released on Rubyworks Records on September 7.

11:11 is the follow up to 2006’s self-titled break-through album which has sold over 100,000 copies in the UK.

The new album was recorded at Rodrigo y Gabriela’s studio in Ixtapa, Mexico and has been mixed by Colin Richardson (Slipknot, Trivium). Initial copies of the album come with a bonus DVD.
