The lovely, the scrumptious, the divine Mr Rufus Wainwright is doing a nationwide tour in Match and April. Here are the dates:

Carling Academy Islington London TUE 01/03/2005 - sold out

Hall for Cornwall Truro TUE 05/04/2005

Colston Hall Bristol WED 06/04/2005

Reading Hexagon Reading THU 07/04/2005

Journal Tyne Theatre Newcastle SAT 09/04/2005

Symphony Hall Birmingham TUE 12/04/2005

Royal Concert Hall Nottingham WED 13/04/2005

The Lowry Salford Quays THU 14/04/2005

Shepherds Bush Empire London FRI 15/04/2005


No-one's allowed to buy tickets for Bristol as I haven't got mine yet and desperately don't want them to sell out.

Eeeeee! I'm so excited I could puke on my shoes.

Lovely MrStella swung by the Colston Hall on his way back from work yesterday and bagged us third row seats. I'm stupidly excited.

And the bulge of his jeans.

Ahem. Not that I'll be looking, you understand. It's all about the music, man.

Very slightly off topic...a few of his CDs are in the HMV sale. Any recommendations?

Get Want One first off, it's definitely his best. You may find it takes a bit of getting used to 'cause it sounds more like an opera than a pop album and it's rather like getting slapped in the face by an effeminate diva. Once you've got your head round it, though, it's completely astonishing and uplifting. Some incredible songwriting on there.

Poses, his second album, is his second best. The eponymous first album is pretty patchy, I find, but there are some complete gems on it like Foolish Love and April Fools.

The Bristol Gig last night was spectacular, even though the poor boy's voice was giving out and he couldn't get all the high notes. He was very joky and gracious about it all saying "singing is overrated anyway" after Beautiful Child (I think).

Anyway, for the 1st encore he did a track from Want Two called Old Whore's Diet and started to strip halfway through. And not only him - but the whole band got their kit off too and dressed up in some hilarious old whore's outfits. Rufus was wearing a tiara, a sash that said Miss Bristol 2005 and a very, very small pair of spangly pants, out of which one hairy bollock popped. He didn't notice for several minutes and I didn't know where to put my eyes. (Well, I did. I think you can guess where.)

Were you on the left or the right? Maybe I saw the back of your head!

Poor Rufus's little cracky voice. Bless. Weirdly though he almost held the long note in Vibrate perfectly. And it seemed to come back totally at the very end. Stripping obviously agreed with him.

Couldn't believe all that epilepsy inducing flashing lights either. My poor eyes. smile.gif

Lauren, you should definitely go but miss the support act, "Joan as police woman". I thought she wasted a beautiful voice on some really bland songs but she won my respect back when she did backing vocals and violin in Rufus's set.

Fop, I was on the left as you looked at the stage, 3rd row. His voice is such a strange thing. There was notes I was certain he wasn't going to get but he did them beautifully.
