Rufus World

It's been a good week - We went to see Rufus Wainwright on Tuesday night in Belfast. I don't think my description of the evening will do it justice. What a fantastic night! He had a seven piece band and his voice is just absolutely perfect. He played lots of grand piano, guitar and also just sang - he's got very cool moves, some of which are just a little bit Las Vegas (in a good way.) The planned support act didn't happen so the lovely Rufus played for two and a half hours with just a little break. Wonderful! Concert outfits included a white glittery leisure suit and after the break he emerged in lederhosen (pictured above.) For the encore he came out wearing black stilletos etc and his band joined him as backup dancers. I can't describe it without making it sound weird, but believe me, it was cool . . . .
