Rufus Wainwright To Play LA’s Orpheum Theatre May 12th, Tickets On Sale Now

Rufus Wainwright in LA.

Rufus Wainwright will take his new album Out of the Game out on the road with an 8-piece band this Spring & Summer for a highly anticipated North American tour.  The first week of the tour includes a stop at Los Angeles venue the Orpheum.  Tickets are available now. This is the first time he has toured with a band since 2008’s ‘Release The Stars’ tour.

Critically heralded, Out of the Game has been dubbed “a triumphant return to pop” by ROLLING STONE, and NPR says “The key is his gift for melody. Wainwright’s music throws lines in the air with a grace and confidence rarely heard in contemporary music.” Rufus is also profiled in the current double-issue of Newsweek on-stands now.

Here’s his acclaimed video with Helena Bonham Carter:
