    Default Rufus Wainwright + Lil Sis Martha, Mom Kate & Aunt Kate

    They're very good at doing the Wainwright-McGarrigle "let's put a show on" family thing. Sunset on the outdoor stage. Say the Leonard Cohen slot? I think that would be rather nice.




    EDIT: Oops. Typo in the title of the thread. Doh! That should read "Rufus Wainwright + Lil Sis Martha, Mom Kate & Aunt Anna".

    Agreed, Loudon is the best in the family.

    I just caught Rufus at the Long Beach Convention Center. He was excellent. Saw him at Coachella back in '07 too, superb performer. He said he has a new album coming out in the Spring too, wouldn't be surprised if he was there.

    New album, ay? Did he play any new songs? Impressions? God, I hope he gets a task-master of a producer in there who won't indulge him. Release The Stars was just ridiculous. Such bombast. I always think he's at his strongest when things are a little more restrained and when he wrote songs he could actually sing without straining. Time to bring Jon Brion back on board or the next album will literally have 76 trombones playing. I remember seeing him at a solo gig at a large theatre a few years ago. Large, roudy, loud crowd. But when he sang Memphis Skyline (just him and the piano) he silenced the whole hall almost instantly. Like pin drop silenced.

    The new album is just him and a piano. Very stripped-down affair. He played at least one new song when I saw him...can't remember what it was called. Something about a rose. Very intricate piano work...lovely song.

    Rufus Wainwright Tour of Australia and New Zealand Cancelled
    15th of January 2010

    It is with deep regret that Chugg Entertainment and Gaynor Crawford Presents today announced that Rufus Wainwright's upcoming tour will be cancelled due to an illness in the family, but the artist has confirmed that he will return to tour Australia and New Zealand before the end of the year.

    Rufus Wainwright was scheduled to arrive in Australia next month to perform as part of the ‘Day On The Green' winery series with Paul Kelly, before a scheduled performance at the New Zealand International Arts Festival as well as two solo shows in Auckland and Christchurch. He was then scheduled to perform at Verbrugghen Hall at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music for two intimate solo performances.

    The promoters and artist sincerely apologise for any inconvenience that the cancellation has caused, and hope that Rufus' fans can appreciate the difficult and unfortunate circumstances surrounding the decision.

    "Our thoughts are with Rufus. We look forward to inviting him to the New Zealand International Festival in the future," says Lissa Twomey, Artistic Director for the New Zealand International Arts Festival.

    you going to his Largo show Feb 9 Woogie? My friend and I got tickets, we are really looking forward to it.

    and yes, a Wainwright family block at Coachella would be great
    Then I will hold you down and spit her percolations all over you until you're as greasy as the day she regrets pushing your big fat ass out her big fat cunt.

    Indeed. Mom's very sick apparently. In any case, I hope I get to see him again soon. He was great at Coachella and in Santa Fe, later in 2007, when my GF and I saw him. A Fine Frenzy and Sean Lennon were openers. It rained, but the show was still very excellent.
    Upcoming: 04/11/14-04/13/14 - Coachella Weekend One; 04/18/14-04/20/14 - Coachella Weekend Two; 08/19/14 - NIN/Soundgarden (Isleta Amphitheater - Albuquerque, NM)

    Oh no, how sad. I thought Kate had beat cancer a while ago.
