Next week we were to have seen Rufus Wainwright in concert here in Christchurch. Sadly the recent death of Rufus’ mother has meant the cancellation of his tour in NZ for the present. We do hope we will get to see him perform live somewhere, sometime.
Meanwhile, i bought C a copy of the dvd of Rufus’s concert Milwaukee at Last as a valentine gift. This is excellent. We had heard a radio broadcast of the performance earlier in the summer: seeing him and his band [and his boyfriend], both on- and back-stage is great fun. The concert is a collection of so many of his best songs – and in some brilliant arrangements – that the whole thing is a wonderful treat. We loved watching this.
