Rufus Wainwright @ Prospect Park over the summer
"What can I say, playing a solo show (or should I say recital) at Carnegie Hall is perhaps the greatest achievement in the world of musical performance. This concert means more to me than any other show I've done in the City of New York hence, and believe me, I've done a lot of hencing in the City of New York. Please come witness it, and in the meantime while you eat, drink and sleep I will practice! Practice! Practice!" - Rufus WainwrightTickets are still on sale for Rufus's December 6th show at Carnegie Hall, and if it's even just as good as his last big show, in Prospect Park, it will be amazing. I also have a pair of tickets to the show you can win. Details below.
And speaking of that last show in Prospect Park (where Rufus's dad Loudon opened and then later joined him on stage), I have a set of pictures that never made it ot the site. Here they are (above and below), with the rest of his tour dates, and the contest details, below...
