Without doubt, Rufus Wainwright has established himself as one of the great male vocalists and songwriter’s of his generation. The New York born, Montreal bred singer songwriter has released seven acclaimed studio albums, and two live albums including his fantastic, Grammy nominated ‘Rufus Does Judy At Carnegie Hall’.
Rufus has also collaborated with many artists including, most recently, Robbie Williams co-writing and dueting on the title track of his ‘Swing Both Ways’ album. He has also worked with the Pet Shop Boys, Shirley Bassey, Elton John, Antony, David Byrne, Joni Mitchell, Robert Wilson, Lou Reed, Boy George and Mark Ronson.
His tours with and without a band are equally acclaimed. From Glastonbury to the Royal Opera House via Radio City Music Hall, Carnegie Hall, the Hollywood Bowl, Rufus Wainwright has proven himself to be quite the showman.
He has also performed many notable shows with some of the world’s best orchestras including the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra playing a selection of his own songs and his Shakespearean Sonnets.
