Affectionately referred to by Elton John as “the greatest songwriter on the planet” and praised by the New York Times for his “genuine originality,” Rufus Wainwright has established himself as one of the great male vocalists and songwriters of his generation. The son of folk singers Loudon Wainwright III and Kate McGarrigle, and brother of Martha Wainwright, he has carved out his own singular sound in the worlds of rock, opera, theatre, dance and film.
He returns to Symphony Hall to mark the release of his seventh album, Out of the Game. This latest album sees Rufus working with a new collaborator, celebrated producer Mark Ronson. The results are the loosest, most accessible music of Wainwright’s career, retaining his distinctive narrative sense and wry wit while adding classic pop pleasures. With grace and humour, craft and confidence, Out of the Game is a remarkable return to the pop world for Rufus Wainwright. The scope of sounds and styles is unified by both his incomparable voice and the lucidity of his vision. Don’t miss this chance to experience it live.
