RODRIGO y GABRIELA ANNOUNCE FIVE NIGHT RESIDENCY AT 02 SHEPHERDS BUSH EMPIRE

Mexican Maestros in W12 lockdown for November 2010
Tickets priced at £22.50 (including booking fee)

Acoustic rockers Rodrigo y Gabriela will be back in London in November for an unprecedented five night stand at one of their favourite venues – the O2 Shepherds Bush Empire. The shows will run on November 2nd, 3rd, 5th (yes, expect to see fireworks), 6th and 7th, and will see Rod & Gab play to 10,000 fans during the residency. The duo played three sold out shows at the venue in May 2007.

Rodrigo y Gabriela are currently on a world tour promoting their new studio album – ’11:11′ – which was released to glowing reviews in September 2009. Their current tour has seen them visit Australia, New Zealand and Japan with an extended jaunt around North America en route to further European dates including a whole host of festivals from the likes of Glastonbury to T In The Park and Latitude. Rod & Gab also performed at The White House for the President and Mrs. Obama and their guests the Mexican President Felipe Hinojosa and the First Lady of Mexico Margarita Zavala. This is only the second state dinner the Obama’s have hosted at The White House and is another extraordinary achievement for the Mexican acoustic rockers who shared the stage on this occasion with Obama favourite Beyonce.

Rod & Gab’s most recent London gig was the triumphant sold out night at the HMV Hammersmith Apollo in November 2009. Their live shows have been known to feature special guests, so far they have been joined by Robert Trujillo (Metallica) on a few occasions, Alex Skolnick (Testament), guitar legend Al Di Meola and Zack De La Rocha (Rage Against The Machine).

’11:11′ is Rodrigo y Gabriela’s personal tribute to eleven musicians or bands who have inspired them along their musical journey, ranging from household names like Pink Floyd and Jimi Hendrix to personal favourites such as Le Trio Joubran and Michel Camilo. The album was produced by Rodrigo (with co-production by John Leckie on one track) and mixed by Colin Richardson (Slipknot, Trivium).
