A few years ago, the folk singer Sixto Rodriguez experienced a resurgence thanks to the release of the art house hit movie Searching for Sugar Man, a documentary about his life that centers on the rumors of his death that circulated in the '90s.

In the wake of its release, Rodriguez has appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman and embarked on a short tour. He was also the subject of a 60 Minutes feature that highlighted the film and his burgeoning career.



Now, the singer has announced a 2018 tour. He’ll perform on Friday, March 16, at the Akron Civic Theatre.

A ticket presale is currently underway on the Civic Theatre website (use the passcode STAGE).

Tickets go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. tomorrow.
