    Very disappointing from Anita, 07/04/14
    After being extremely excited to see Rodriguez, as I have always been a fan, I was disappointed to find that although his voice is still good for his age, his back up band did not seem to know his music or complement him at all. He only sang about 3 songs from his popular Cold Fact album and it was extremely difficult to see him from where I was positioned.

    great guitarist and singer from Suemerlyn, 25/03/14
    Wonderful to finally see this man after watching Searching for Sugarman. Especially good to hear him sing some of his well known own songs. He is evidently older than he should be to be touring - such a shame he was not acknowledged much earlier in his life. The only thing I would add is that I wish he had performed more of his own material and less covers. But really glad to see him - a privilege.

    re: boring gig from Davros Davies, 19/03/14
    Easily one of most boring gigs Ive been to. Im British and maybe you need a long term sentimental attachment to Rodriguez to appreciate him live but his music is for a quiet evening in doing the ironing. I enjoyed the documentary and his story but for me seeing him live was an expensive step too far.
