Rodriguez, the Detroit singer-songwriter at the center of the Oscar-nominated documentary Searching for Sugar Man, will perform at the Coachella, Glastonbury and Primavera festivals this year, Billboard reports. Rodriguez, now 70, released a pair of albums on Clarence Avant's Sussex records in the early Seventies. The records failed to catch on in the U.S. but made Rodriguez a massive figure in South Africa, unbeknownst to him. He returned to tour South Africa in 1998, and in 2008, Light in the Attic records re-released his two albums, Cold Fact and Coming From Reality.
Rodriguez will tour South Africa and Australia before his festival appearances, starting February 9th in Cape Town. Coachella is set for April 12th-14th and 19th-21st. Primavera is set for May 22nd-26th, and Glastonbury is scheduled for June 26th-30th. For more information, visit Rodriguez's website.
