Sixto Rodriguez, the man made famous in the U.S. after the documentary "Searching for Sugarman," will be coming to Orlando this weekend.

Rodriguez will be performing at Plaza Live Orlando, Feb. 25 with tickets starting at $30. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

After having two records flop in the U.S. during the '70s, Rodriguez gained fame in South Africa, where his celebrity was compared to that of The Beatles.

After decades of South Africans not knowing anything about their favorite musician, director Malik Bendjelloul tracked him down to create his 2012 documentary where Rodriguez first found out about his fame overseas.
