3 NYC nights of Rufus Wainwright | Reports

Rufus Wainwright headlined the Beacon Theater in NYC two nights in a row (Nov 1st & 2nd, 2005). I was sad I couldn’t make it to either.

“…Bill wasn’t so happy about ‘Gay Messiah,’ and I’ll have to admit, it was a little over the top. (This coming from somebody who is only offended by people who get offended.) Everyone on stage came out in white sheets, basically, to the end of ‘Old Whore’s Diet.’ Then two guys, in those Roman-looking outfits with the brush-type helmets, came out with a big white cross, and put a wreath on Rufus’s head and these diamond bracelet things on his wrists. Then Rufus stood there and sang “Gay Messiah” with his arms lifted on the cross. It was so wrong. I told Bill I think we should go to church on Sunday now….” [Holy Randomness]
