Rodriguez will perform at the Royal Festival Hall on November 17. The 70 year old cult musician will be backed by a full band.

Searching For Sugar Man is in selected cinemas now and will be released on DVD in November. The soundtrack is out now.

It won the Special Jury Prize and the Audience Award for best international documentary at the Sundance Film Festival 2012.
