News: Rufus Wainwright Set To Return To Australia

1 min read

(AUS) Melding both the beautifully moving with the powerful and bombastic; the broad spectrum of Rufus Wainwright’s talents will be on full display when he returns to Australia in 2015 to perform his most revered and beloved songs. Following the release earlier this year of Vibrate: The Best Of Rufus Wainwright, this will be Rufus’ first headline Australian tour in nearly three years.

Already announced for WOMADelaide, he will perform across the country including Melbourne’s Palais Theatre on Wednesday 4th March, the State Theatre in Sydney on Monday 9th March and Brisbane’s QPAC Concert Hall on Thursday 12th March. Wainwright will also perform at Taronga Zoo as part of their Twilight At Taronga series.

Without doubt, Rufus Wainwright has established himself as one of the great male vocalists and songwriters of his generation. The New York born, Montreal-raised singer songwriter has released seven studio albums of critically acclaimed chamber-pop, and two live albums including his fantastic, Grammy nominated Rufus Does Judy At Carnegie Hall.

With the tour following the release of Vibrate: The Best Of Rufus Wainwright, audiences can expect music drawn from his wildly eclectic career, including all of the fan favourites.
