As previously announced on hotpress.com, US singer Rufus Wainwright is set to play Ulster Hall, Belfast, on Novemeber 14. Now comes the great news for those in the capital, that he'll perform in Vicar St. the previous night (13).
Wainwright released his “most pop album” yet, Out Of The Game, in April. Aided by producer Mark Ronson, who lauded it “the best work of my career”, it was clear this partnership worked a treat.

Visionary singer-songwriter Rufus Wainwright has built up a loyal cult following for his epic tales of love, lost and unrequited. But as he admits himself, that’s only half the story. “Usually interviewers are obsessed with one thing or the other – whether it’s the gay thing or the drugs or the politics,” he tells an intrigued Phil Udell.

The flamboyant torch songs of Rufus Wainwright feel like jetsam from a dazzling alternative reality. In Wainwright’s rococo otherworld, Busby Berkeley and Tin Pan Alley cast a languorous and lingering shadow. Overwrought emotion is respected artistic currency. And the Golden Age of Hollywood – the era of high-camp and brash musicals – abides in perpetuity.

I wouldn’t fancy being a mate of Rufus Wainwright’s. Not that the songwriter seems particularly unfriendly or unfeeling – quite the opposite. It’s just that you’d constantly be worried that anything you did or said to him could end up as a song.

You have to hand it to anyone who has the audacity to dedicate a record solely to themselves, as Wainwright does here.
