both Rufus and Martha were terrific-their voices were incredible. Rufus was in top shape and in great spirits. Loved it so much. Also, we were able to trade our seats for front center so that made it so much better. Goldstar needs to get better...continued

Oh my gawd!!!!!!!!!! If I could give MORE than 5 stars, I would ... it was that great! Martha was amazing. Rufus was beyond beyond. Sitting in Section A so close to the stage. Thanks again GoldStar, you did great!

More Information


Rufus Wainwright will perform at The Greek Theatre in support of his latest release All Days Are Nights: Songs For Lulu with special guest Martha Wainwright.

Grammy nominated singer/songwriter Rufus Wainwright introduces his forthcoming album All Days Are Nights: Songs For Lulu (Decca/Universal Music Group) featuring original video art by Douglas Gordon. In addition to designing the album cover, Gordon has also completed an exclusive video-piece for Wainwright’s upcoming World Tour and recently hosted a show at London’s Tate Museum. In this collaboration, Gordon’s visual language expresses the passion of sorrow, a re-surfacing theme of the twelve songs on Wainwright’s most personal album to date.

All Days Are Nights: Songs For Lulu is the artist’s sixth studio album and first new release in three years. The cover features a dark eye drenched in mascara and black eye shadow and depicts Wainwright’s eye, which was inspired by film scenes from such classics as G.W. Pabst’s Pandora’s Box (1929).  The Scottish artist and filmmaker chose the close-up shot of Wainwright’s left eye as the visual accompaniment to the album that in a simple, yet powerful way, unites his piano and voice.

This tour will be unlike any other for the musician: It will be the first time he performs his music with such intimacy while utilizing a sophisticated onstage production “After hiding behind a 70-piece orchestra with my opera you can blame everything on the tuba player. With this album, when the curtain is raised it’s me on my own,” says Wainwright. Their unique collaboration will culminate live as Gordon has completed a 10-metre wide projection that will be used as the backdrop of the stage during the show. The video-piece shows Wainwright’s eye in motion and is manually adjusted to precisely fit the variable duration of each specific performance, allowing the audience to see every pupil-dilation, blink and tear, up close and to empathize with the mood of the performance.

Rufus Wainwright, the son of musicians Kate McGarrigle and Loudon Wainwright III has just written and composed his first opera, Prima Donna, and has released six studio albums and three DVDs to date. His previous album, Release The Stars, has achieved Gold sales status in Canada and the U.K.
