Rodrigo Y Gabriela
Rodrigo Y Gabriela
Acoustic duo to perform two shows at the iconic Hollywood Bowl as well as Red Rocks Amphitheatre on twenty six date run this August and September.

Taking a break from finishing their next record, Mexican acoustic rock-maestros Rodrigo y Gabriela are heading out on tour this August and September. The epic run includes two shows at the iconic Hollywood Bowl where the duo will perform accompanied by the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Dudamel as well as a headline performance at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, CO.

Fans can expect to get the first taste of songs from Rodrigo y Gabriela’s forthcoming studio album as well as classic tracks from their extensive back catalogue.

Since they left Mexico for Ireland in 1999, Rodrigo y Gabriela have established themselves as one of the most popular acoustic instrumental bands in the world. They have sold in excess of 1.5 million albums worldwide, and have sold out venues like the Hollywood Bowl, Radio City New York, Red Rocks Amphitheatre and Le Zenith in Paris on numerous occasions.

Their film work includes the soundtracks to ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides’ and ‘Puss In Boots’, and they have collaborated onstage and on record with artists as diverse as Robert Trujillo (Metallica), Al Di Meola, Zack De La Rocha (Rage Against The Machine) and Anoushka Shankar. In 2010 Rodrigo y Gabriela played at The White House in Washington for President Obama.

From humble beginnings as buskers on Dublin’s Grafton Street, endless touring and a great word of mouth buzz carried the band forward until their international break out with the release of their self-titled 2006 album, which spawned the hits ‘Tamacun’, ‘Diablo Rojo’ and their cover of ‘Stairway To Heaven’. The duo appeared on Jools Holland, BBC TV’s Glastonbury coverage, plus Letterman and Jay Leno in America.

“11:11” followed in 2009, and the band went to Cuba in 2012 to record with local musicians for “Area 52”. The band’s last studio album release was 2014’s “9 Dead Alive”.

Their most recent world tour included shows in 25 countries around the world, including their debut tour of South America.
