Press release :

For these special anniversary shows, Rufus and his band will perform material from both his Rufus Wainwright (1998) and Poses (2001) releases – two critically acclaimed albums featuring fan favourites Cigarettes And Chocolate Milk, Poses, April Fools, California, and Foolish Love.

It was his self-titled debut which first burst him 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 ever since.

“20 years, what can I say?” states 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!"
