Rodrigo y Gabriela unleash U.S. journey this summer
Mexican guitar duo Rodrigo y Gabriela will work their way from the West Coast to the East this summer in continued support of last year's "Area 52."
Rodrigo Sanchez and Gabriela Quintero will first make a May 12 appearance at Napa, CA's inaugural BottleRock festival, followed by a May 17 performance at Seoul Jazz Festival in South Korea.
The latest North American leg gets underway July 5 in George, WA, and will move across the nation, visiting 18 major markets through an Aug. 3 gig in Boston.
"Area 52," Rodrigo y Gabriela's fifth studio effort, surfaced in January 2012. The collection, which features a collaboration with the Cuban orchestra known as C.U.B.A., are re-recordings of tracks from two of the pair's previous albums: 2006's eponymous release and 2009's "11:11."
