“Rufus Wainwright” Side 2: From “Beauty Mark” to “Imaginary Love”
Take a journey through over 20 years of Rufus Wainwright’s music from the comfort of your living room in “A Rufus-Retro-Wainwright-Spective” an 18-show series of live-stream concerts from Rufus’s home in Laurel Canyon as he performs his entire studio discography in chronological order, starting with his 1998 self-titled debut.
Tickets are on-sale now and special multi-show bundles are available as well. All streams will be archived for 1 month after the show.
This show starts with “Beauty Mark” which is about my mom. She was always my first audience until the day she died. She was also my fiercest critic. There are a lot of songs that are not on this album, most of them probably did not withstand her criticism. There are over 50 rolls of tape (yes, remember those analogue days?) from my recording sessions of this album in a Universal Music vault somewhere. Luckily, they were not in the one storage building that burnt down in Burbank years ago. I don’t believe that love is imaginary anymore. Love is the greatest gift and weapon that we have against darkness and hatred and I hope that this show will shine some light into the twilight of our days.
