Grammy-winning singer, songwriter, and composer Rufus Wainwright will embark on a highly anticipated North American tour to commemorate the 20-year anniversary of his eponymous debut which first burst him onto the music scene. Immediately beloved and critically acclaimed, both Rufus and the record were widely hailed as a breakthrough. It influenced many artists that came after him and set the path for his illustrious career ever since.
Wainwright will hit the road with his band and perform material from both Rufus Wainwright (1998) and Poses (2001). “20 years, what can I say?” states Wainwright. “In life, one stands the test of time but in music, thankfully, one reaps the rewards. Come savor a very fine vintage of songs, those were some pretty good years!”
The tour will come on the heels of the debut of his second opera, Hadrian, set to premiere on October 13th at the Canadian Opera Company (Toronto). Hadrian was inspired by the Roman Emperor Hadrian and his love for Antinous. The opera is composed by Rufus and award-winning Canadian actor, director and playwright Daniel MacIvor.
Artist pre-sale tickets and VIP Packages begin on Wednesday, April 11th at 10am local time, and tickets available to the public will be on sale on Friday, April 13th at 10am local time.
