A Rufus-Retro-Wainwright-Spective

Friday, January 22nd

Rufus Wainwright is performing nine albums in 18 shows.

Dear Friends and Fans,

I am ecstatic to announce the continuation of my live stream concert series, A Rufus-Retro-Wainwright-Spective. When we began these shows back in October, I was a bit unsure on how they would perform as a replacement for in-person concerts. I was pleased to discover that my dearest listeners were enjoying this new way of attending concerts in the intimacy of my living room, and I too began to enjoy playing songs I hadn’t played in many years. Not to mention interacting with the audience during the fireside chats brought me lots of joy.

As I’ve said before during the shows, we love to stay consistent! That being said, the Rufus-Retro-Wainwright-Spective will continue staring in January with the first half of Release the Stars. Joining me will be my incredible band with Brian Green on guitar and Jacob Mann on piano, and we will be playing a cover song every show, which you can vote for here. And of course, my Hollywood friends will join me on the couch to talk about our friendships, the music, and to raise money for charities. We’ll journey through the second half of my discography all the way to my most recent album, Unfollow the Rules, which just got nominated for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album at the 2021 GRAMMYs!

Thank you again for tuning into the first half of this retrospective tour, and I hope these upcoming shows will bring you light and happiness for the new year.
