Searching For Sugar Man star Rodriguez sealed his comeback by opening the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland on Thursday (04Jul13).
The 2012 film, which charts two fans' quest to track down the forgotten folk star, catapulted the singer/songwriter into the spotlight and won the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature in February (13).
After spending years in the music wilderness, Rodriguez is now riding high on his new-found fame - he landed a spot at Britain's Glastonbury festival last weekend (29-30Jun13) and now he has enjoyed the honour of opening the prestigious Montreux Jazz Festival.
Rodriguez played at the event on the shore of Lake Geneva on Thursday, while other artists to perform on the festival's first day included Leonard Cohen and Lianne La Havas.
Sting and Prince are also booked to appear during the festival, which will conclude on 21 July (13) with a concert held in honour of music legend Quincy Jones.
