It’s a Cold Fact, Rodriguez fans: the legend himself rocked the Grand Arena at the Grand West Casino and Entertainment World in Cape Town on Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 February, 2013.

The first in a series of comeback concerts planned for  70-year-old Sixto Rodriguez, following the phenomenal success of his Academy Award-nominated  and 2013 British Academy of Film and Television Arts award-winning documentary, Searching for Sugar Man, which was partly shot in sunny Cape Town, this weekend’s performances once again established just why this unassuming singer is such a fantastic performer.

Singing along to some of Rodriguez’s greatest hits including I WonderInner City Blues, I’ll Slip Away and more, the rapt audiences just couldn’t get enough of the mysterious recording artist. Some ardent fans took to social media platforms to quote the quirky sayings of their idol:

“Best Rodriguez quote for me? After singing "I wonder", he said to us "I DO wonder  but I really don't wanna know!" #RodriguezCPT” Pearl Gaitskill ‏@pearlgaitskill

Tickets for the concerts on Wednesday 20 and Thursday 21 February, 2013 are available at Computicket.
