Finally, Rodriguez is a big hit outside of South Africa.

The ‘60s folk singer from Detroit – little known before becoming the subject of last year’s popular documentary “Searching for Sugar Man,” which won the best doc Oscar on Sunday – is enjoying his newfound spotlight in his native country. And it’s leading him to a very big show in the Denver metro area.

Rodriguez will headline the 1stBank Center in Broomfield on April 30, a show that was recently moved from the significantly smaller Ogden Theatre because of “overwhelming demand,” according to promoter AEG Live.

Most ticketholders for the Ogden show will be refunded and have access to a presale, depending on how they purchased their tickets. (If you purchased tickets online, you will receive an email with instructions, allowing you to buy back your seats for the 1stBank Center at the original Ogden pricing at 10 a.m. Monday — well before the public onsale. Those who purchased their tickets at the box office will be able to exchange their tickets at the Ogden box office starting at 10 a.m. March 9, a day after the public onsale.)

UPDATE: The promoter is holding alternating rows — among the best seats in the 1stBank Center, they say — for the people who already bought online and in-person. They’re saying that even though the onsale dates are different for each of those groups, they’ll have access to the same seats, which are better seats than those going onsale to the general public. (Yeah, it’s kind of confusing.)

Tickets, $35-$45, will go on sale to everybody else at 10 a.m. March 8 via TicketHorse.

    So AEG is going to charge the people who already bought tickets an extra $10 to see the show and make them drive all the way to Broomfield to do so? That’s pretty low…Even for AEG.

    This sucks and pretty much goes contrary to everything Rodriguez “stood” for. You book a date, you play that date. My dad taught me that when I asked out ugly women and they said yes. 1st Bank Center blows and so does this situation.
