Event Details

Praised by the New York Times for his “genuine originality,” Rufus Wainwright has established himself as one of the great male vocalists, songwriters, and composers of his generation. He has released eleven studio albums, three live albums (including the Grammy-nominated Rufus Does Judy at Carnegie Hall), and has collaborated with artists such as Elton John, Burt Bacharach, Miley Cyrus, Joni Mitchell, Billy Joel, and many others. He has also written two operas, numerous songs for movies and TV. 

To celebrate his 50th birthday, he will release his 12th studio album of folk songs and duets featuring among others Chaka Khan, Sheryl Crow, Brandi Carlile, and John Legend on June 2nd, 2023.

 For the tour he has assembled a four piece band of amazing musicians and two incredible back-up singers; his sister Lucy Wainwright Roche and Petra Haden who will sing the parts of most of the guests from the album.

Not many musicians have the vocal range and depth of interpretation that Wainwright possesses or as The New Yorker simply put it, “Nobody sings quite like Rufus Wainwright.”
