Preview: Rufus Wainwright at De Montfort Hall, Leicester, 3rd July

De Montfort Hall Presents…

Rufus Wainwright
Wednesday 3rd July
Tickets £29.50, £35, £45
Doors: 7:00pm
The last few years have been quite a journey for Rufus Wainwright. Creatively, he put pop music aside and concentrated on his other interests, from his Grammy-nominated recreation of Judy Garland's fabled Carnegie Hall concert to the 2009 premiere of his opera, Prima Donna.

Wainwright's personal life has been even more dramatic, witnessing the birth of his daughter, Viva; the death of his mother, singer/songwriter Kate McGarrigle; and his engagement to partner Jorn Weisbrodt.

All of these experiences inform his seventh studio album, Out of the Game, along with the input of 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.

Don't miss this incredible performer when he comes to Leicester.
