Rodrigo Y Gabriela Tour Dates & Tickets


Three years in the making, Mettavolution brings together Rod’s and Gab’s passionate interest in Buddhism, the history of human evolution and the liberation of the potential we have as a species; all expressed through the medium of two acoustic guitars. Conceived and composed in their studio in Ixtapa on the Mexican Pacific Coast, then road-tested in South America and the USA in 2017, before more fine tuning and further tweaks on their Australian tour of 2018, a long list of new material has been distilled down to six new Rodrigo y Gabriela compositions and one audacious, jaw-dropping cover version.


Rodrigo y Gabriela have shared a first taste of the album in the form of ‘Echoes’, a cover of the Pink Floyd track, which takes up the whole of the second half of ‘Mettavolution’. Long-time Floyd fans, Rod and Gab lovingly pay homage to the ‘Meddle’-era prog-classic, while at the same time weaving their own golden threads into its timeless textures, to create something exciting, contemporary and unforgettable.


Rodrigo y Gabriela have also announced news of a headline European tour in April including a London Roundhouse show the week of release. Tickets are now on general sale from the band’s website.
