Shredtastic guitar duo Rodrigo y Gabriela began playing thrash metal together over 15 years ago as teens in Mexico City. Weary of the scene's limitations, they moved to Europe, settling in Dublin, where their rhythmic, melodic, and frenetic acoustic-guitar playing attracted much attention. Increasingly acclaimed around the globe for their flamenco-influenced rock, tonight offers a chance to watch them perform tracks from their latest effort, Area 52, (and possibly some Led Zeppelin and Metallica covers) at the historic Hollywood Palladium.

ATO Records says…

ATO Records is excited to announce Rodrigo y Gabriela's spring 2012 tour dates in support of their album Area 52. Area 52 contains nine of Rod and Gab's favorite songs from their own catalogue re-arranged and recorded in Havana with legendary producer Peter Asher and a 13-piece Cuban orchestra comprised of some of the country's finest young players. This spring, Rodrigo y Gabriela will be bringing the band C.U.B.A. on the road in order to showcase the thrilling and dynamic hybrid of metal, latin and jazz featured on the album in a live setting. It will mark the first time in their careers that Rodrigo y Gabriela have toured and performed with a backing band.
