RODRIGUEZ

Rodriguez, the lost legend who unknowingly became an international folk hero and anti-apartheid protest icon — famously documented in the Acadamy Award-winning documentary Searching for Sugarman — makes his triumphant return to the Luckman stage. Rodriguez began his music career in the 60's, but without any enthusiastic response, he was ultimately let go by his label and forced to work outside the music industry. Unbeknownst to him, and to the rest of the world, his songs were the inspiration for millions struggling against apartheid in South Africa where he was regarded as a superstar. With his new-found celebrity status, Rodriguez has finally found commercial success for the album he produced four decades ago. 

Rodriguez returns to the Luckman performing his classic hits and the songs that helped shape his fascinating life.
