Buffalo, NY- The University at Buffalo Center for the Arts welcomes Rodrigo y Gabriela: Tenth Anniversary Tour with Special Guest Marc Scibilia on Friday, November 17, 2017 at 8:00 p.m. Tickets are $59.50, $39.50, and $29. Presented by Metamorphic Concerts and Funtime.
Mexican acoustic rock-maestros Rodrigo y Gabriela are set to continue their triumphant US touring run this fall, as they celebrate the tenth anniversary re-release of their classic self-titled break-out album.
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, Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Radio City Music Hall, the Hollywood Bowl, and more.
In 2016 alone, Rodrigo y Gabriela played in 25 countries around the world, including their debut tour of South America. The re-release of “Rodrigo y Gabriela” includes the newly remastered album, two bonus tracks, plus a live album and DVD recorded at The Olympia Theatre in Dublin in 2006.
