The Great Rufus Wainwright. A must see!
10 May 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This gave me a great insight into the music and gave a lot of background to his reason for writing his songs. I found this gave me a greater appreciation of his music. The commentaries from some very well known British singer / songwriters and American artists was excellent. He performs quite a few of his songs from all 4 of his albums, not always the whole song but enough to keep it interesting. I found the honesty with which he talks about himself to be refreshing and he certainly does not leave anything out about his life and growing up. His friends and family also add a lot to the portrait of Rufus letting us in on his childhood and how he has been influenced by the different types of music his mother and father were performing and playing as he grew up. I was lucky enough to see him live in April 2005 and he played for nearly 2 and a half hours. The energy he shows on stage comes across well on this show.
