The singer returns to the ring after a three-year estrangement. His new album is instrumentally atypical and is called "All days are nights, Songs for Lulu".
When Rufus Wainwright performed "Want One" in 2003 the review was kind to him and said that style sometimes achieved so melancholy, sometimes so crude.
Wainwright, son of the well performer Kate McGarrigle (whose recent death, by the way, took him away from the stage), the preferences of a responsive audience that follows not only for their lyrics and melodies but also for its eccentricities earned.
Precisely in 2007, Rufus was presented at Carnegie Hall in New York with an unusual idea that does not hesitate to carry out: a recital faithfully reinterpret legendary Judy Garland .
But Wainwright's links with cinema are certainly stronger. He has contributed to the soundtracks of several recent successes s: E l Aviator (Martin Scorsese), Bridget Jones's Diary, I am Sam, Moulin Rouge and Brokeback Mountain, among others.
Considered one of the most popular U.S. gay man (although he is also a Canadian citizen), Rufus has been honored with the GLAAD Media Awards prize (the gay community places on its most important figures in the art scene).
Tour: the remainder of 2010
The intense tour of Wainwright for this last stretch of 2010 includes Australia, New Zealand, UK, Belgium and Holland. In North America, in turn, will perform in Toronto, Montreal, Winnipeg, Calgary, Vancouver (Canada), New York, Wilmington, Albany and Aspen (USA).
