On 10-10-10, I went and saw Rufus Wainwright in concert for the first time ever.
This is extremely significant because Rufus Wainwright is my favorite solo artist working today. (I own every single album he’s ever done. Not that there are that many, but still. )
In any event, this was his first time playing in Seoul and he was delightful. His current tour setlist is split in two. The first half is a performance art piece of his latest album and then the second is a revue of songs from every album. Both were equally magnificent, though I wasn’t in love with the first half’s visuals.
But he sounded better than I could’ve imagined. There weren’t pictures allowed, so instead here’s a live recording from the album Want Two. (And he did perform this song and it did soar just like it does here.)
