The versatile and multi-talented Rufus Wainwright brings the leg of his North American tour to Boston, Massachussettes for a night of music at the Bank of America Pavilion, on July 29, 2012.
Canadian-American singer and songwriter Rufus Wainwright is an artist-of-all-trades, so to speak. He has a beautiful tenor voice, can play the piano and the guitar — and can play and switch between these two instruments while performing on stage. He is a gifted and prolific songwriter who can put a range of emotions into music. He can write opinionated songs about socio-cultural-political issues, and can also speak his mind about matters of heart, often about unrequited love. Rufus established a pop-alternative-acoustic credibility through the years, yet evolved to a fuller sound by incorporating symphony, opera, thick harmonies, and rock instrumentation into his more recent work. A big part of his heart for music belongs to opera. He has also written a classical opera and set Shakespeare sonnets to music for a theater piece by Robert Wilson.
