2017 marks the tenth anniversary of the international release of Rodrigo y Gabriela’s self-titled album. To celebrate the occasion, they have dipped into their archive to share a thrilling previously unreleased live album and DVD.

Originally released in Ireland in 2006, the album topped the charts ahead of Johnny Cash and the Arctic Monkeys, and Rodrigo y Gabriela performed a string of shows at The Olympia Theatre in Dublin to coincide with their Irish triumph, performing tracks from the new album as well as their back catalogue.

These live shows were recorded and filmed at the time but have never been released until now.

On 31st March 2017 Rodrigo y Gabriela will release the Deluxe Edition of their self-titled album on 2 disc CD / DVD, double vinyl and digital.

The re-issue includes the original album, newly remastered from the original audio.  The Digital and Vinyl editions include the full Live at The Olympia Theatre, Dublin concert while the 2CD / DVD also includes the concert on DVD.

“Rodrigo y Gabriela” was produced by Rodrigo and Gabriela with John Leckie, best known for his work with Radiohead and The Stone Roses. Affectionately known to fans as “the Crocodile album”, the record has gone on to sell 750,000 copies worldwide.

Pre-order any format now and receive an instant download of Satori (Live At The Olympia Theatre)

The first 300 vinyl pre-orders from Rod Gab.com / Shop ATO will receive a special insert signed by Rod and Gab.

Rod y Gab joined by Robert Trujilo & Marty Friedman at Hollywood Bowl

Rodrigo y Gabriela stormed the Hollywood Bowl this past Sunday night, 14th August.    The duo performed a set of classic Rod Gab compositions, transformed with brand new orchestral arrangements.  They were accompanied for much of the show by the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra.  They were also joined on stage by Megadeath guitarist Marty Friedman for a blistering run through of Astor Piazolla’s “Oblivion” and by Metallica bassist Robert Trullo for a medley of classic Metallica songs.

Check out this fantastic write up of the full show from MxDwn.

Originally released as a Record Store Day 2016 exclusive release we have a small number of Live Manchester and Dublin LPs left and currently for sale in the RodGab.com shop.

Album tracklisting

  1. Foc
  2. Hola
  3. One / Take FIve
  4. Mr Tang
  5. Paris
  6. Libertango

For this special release the album was specially remastered for vinyl from the original source recording by Ray Staff at Air Studios.

Writing in the Guardian at the time of the original album release, journalist John Walters wrote, “Rodrigo y Gabriela’s Live Manchester and Dublin could justifiably claim “traces of heavy metal”. Their Mexican-Flamenco guitar duo repertoire includes a cover of Metallica’s One that moves into Paul Desmond’s Take Five, with a snatch of the White Stripes. There’s a wild streak to these recordings I’ve not heard in previous performances by Rodrigo y Gabriela, and it’s very welcome. This is a World Music album that swings.”
