Easily the best concert I've ever been to. Rufus sounds even better live than he does on the albums. Flawless clarity in his voice. I cried.
Great show, enhanced by the fact that before the show, we ran into R, J, and V on Main Street and had a short chat. Then, because we bought early, we snagged a first row table.
I have been following Rufus now for 3+ years, and this was my 77th show. He never ceases to impress with his complex melodies, poetic lyrics, beautiful voice, witty between song banter and startling good looks. This was a wonderful show, where he brought along his talented half sister, Lucy Wainwright Roche, to open with a few of her own numbers and support his set list on backup.

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...
