Belfast, Ireland@
St. Anne's Cathedral
May 8th 2019
Such an iconic venue to see the incomparable Rufus Wainwright. A rare solo performance with just a piano, guitar and a devoted audience for the evening. Following the recent 'Poses' anniversary shows his fans were treated to a 'best of' set which included new songs from his forthcoming album. Mr Wainwright entertained the crowd with stories about some of his songs including a touching tale about the influence behind 'Candles' where his desire to light a candle in memory of his late mother, folk singer Kate McGarrigle proved a challenge as the churches had ran out of the sticks of wax. The gravitas of the Cathedral did not damper the mischievous side of Canada's favourite nephew. To the fan's surprise he even performed 'Gay Messiah' preceding it with a rallying call for Northern Ireland to "do the right thing" on gay marriage. He ended the show with classics 'Cigarettes and Chocolate milk, Going to a Town and Leonard Cohen's sublime 'Hallelujah'.

Finally a Rufus show with a (great!) band again! I missed this kind of atmosphere for years. Even though each and every Rufus show is worth while. This night brought me back to the Paradiso shows I’ve seen during the Want tours...
