Grammy Award-nominated singer, songwriter, and composer Rufus Wainwright will play two highly anticipated New Zealand dates in March 2019, as part of his 20-year anniversary All These Poses tour.
For these special anniversary shows, Rufus and his band will perform material from both Rufus Wainwright (1998) and Poses (2001) – two critically acclaimed albums featuring fan favourites like ‘Cigarettes And Chocolate Milk’, ‘Poses’, ‘April Fools’, ‘California’ and ‘Foolish Love’.
It was his self-titled debut album which first thrust Rufus onto the music scene. Immediately beloved, both Rufus and the record were widely hailed as a breakthrough. It influenced many artists that came after him and set the path for his illustrious career that followed.
“20 years, what can I say?!” says Rufus. “In life, one stands the test of time but in music, thankfully, one reaps the rewards.
“Come savour a very fine vintage of songs, those were some pretty good years!"
