National Concert Hall, Earlsfort Terrace, Dublin,
Following 2016's sold-out show, the acclaimed Canadian-American vocalist, composer and performer is returning to the National Concert Hall.
Following 2016's sold-out show, acclaimed Canadian-American vocalist, composer and performer Rufus Wainwright is returning to the National Concert Hall for a solo show you won't want to miss.
From his musical foundations as a piano-playing six-year-old to and his first tour at the tender age of 13, Wainwright has gone on to become one of the most revered figures in music, releasing eight studio albums, three DVDs, and three live albums in his time so far.
By age 14, he had been named Canada’s best young musician and by 26 had won the Juno Award for Best Alternative Album for his self-titled debut, released the previous year. His 2006 album Rufus does Judy, recorded at Carnegie Hall, was nominated for a Grammy, and his string of collaborations with legends like Elton John, David Byrne, Mark Ronson, Joni Mitchell and Burt Bacharach all point to his prowess in the studio, on the stereo and at the front of the stage.
In recent years, his attention has turned to a different kind of stage, with his acclaimed first opera Prima Donna premiering at the Manchester International Festival in July 2009 and going on to London, Toronto and BAM in New York. In 2010 he became the first artist to complete a five concert residency at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden in London.
A mix of the very best of all of the worlds in which Wainwright travels, this summertime show at the National Concert Hall will no doubt see him play a blinder.
