'Searching For Sugar Man' star Rodriguez to play Albert Hall show

The star of the new acclaimed documentary Searching For Sugar Man, singer songwriter Rodriguez, is set to play a one-off show in London.

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.

The film follows the story of this supposedly 'lost' artist from Detroit, who, though relatively unknown in the US, became a massive star in South Africa and Australia, but was then rumoured to have died.

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