He has collaborated with artists ranging from Elton John, David Byrne, RobbieWilliams Mark Ronson, Joni Mitchell to Burt Bacharach. His album DzRufus Does Judydz recorded at Carnegie Hall in 2006 was nominated for a Grammy.

His acclaimed first opera, Prima Donna, premiered at the Manchester International Festival in July 2009 and has since been presented in London, Toronto and BAM in New York. This summer it will be performed at the Armel Opera Festival in Hungary and Augsburg Theatre in Germany. In 2015, Deutsche Grammaphon released a studio recording of the opera recorded with the BBC Symphony Orchestra. Rufus celebrated the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death with the release of his latest album Take All My Loves: 9 Shakespeare Sonnets on Deutsche Grammophon worldwide in Spring 2016. The Canadian Opera Company commissioned Wainwright’s second opera, about Roman Emperor Hadrian, to premiere in Toronto in the fall of 2018.

    Rufus is a wonderful musician with a broad catalog. I love his music so much and I’ve never seen a show at the Aladdin! I’d loooove to go! Thanks for considering me!

  2. Natasha October 15, 2018 at 2:07 pm #

    OMG!!!!! adore everything he’s done. pick me please

  3. CHRIS MILLER October 16, 2018 at 12:18 pm #

    Oh he is a great singer, Yes please

  4. Ken Klein October 16, 2018 at 12:24 pm #

    My partner and I absolutely adore Rufus – at least as far back as hearing his amazing take on John Lennon’s “All Across the Universe”. While his soaring, magnificent voice is reason enough to fall in love with him, his skills as a composer and instrumentalist are equally stunning. We are celebrating our 23rd anniversary together, this November, and I couldn’t think of a more incredible way to do it than to spend an evening with our mutually beloved Rufus.

  5. Stiles October 16, 2018 at 12:36 pm #

    I’ve wanted to see Rufus for years and always seem to be out of town or miss out on ticket’s. I would love the opportunity to see this amazing singer live!

  6. Annie October 16, 2018 at 12:58 pm #

    I saw him in NY years ago and would LOVE to again. What am amazing show at an amazing venue this will be!

  7. Christophe October 16, 2018 at 1:17 pm #

    I have listened to Rufus for years but have never heard him live. His earlier songs took me to some deep spots during the aids crisis of the 1990s. He is one of those rare singers who not only perform their own works, but really combine heart and voice; he is a crooner, for sure!

  8. Deborah Harms October 16, 2018 at 1:19 pm #

    Rufus Wainwright is one of the most electric performers I’ve seen live and I would love to take my best friend from middle school to this show; we listened to Poses nonstop when it released.

  9. Tara October 16, 2018 at 1:24 pm #

    I’ve never seen Rufus live and I would love to see him at the Aladdin! Live music nurtures my soul, and it could use a little TLC right now :)

  10. Suzanne October 16, 2018 at 1:26 pm #

    I’d love to see Rufus!

  11. Kalia Gentlesnow October 16, 2018 at 1:30 pm #

    I have been dying to see him for years! I had tickets once before and a medical emergency came up and I wasn’t able to go!
    This would be so amazing to finally be able to see him live!

  12. Gregory Garabedian October 16, 2018 at 2:25 pm #

    Rufus, oh Rufus. He has sound tracked my loves, losses, and breakdowns. I am so enamored of his music, I’ve thus far spared him from creating a cover band I’ve planned in the past called “Raise the Rufus.”

  13. Kelsey Smith October 16, 2018 at 3:19 pm #

    Hell yeah

  14. Jacob October 16, 2018 at 3:35 pm #

    Rufio!

  15. Jacob October 16, 2018 at 3:36 pm #

    Sounds good!

  16. Jamie October 16, 2018 at 4:23 pm #

  17. Cara October 16, 2018 at 4:41 pm #

    So much wow

  18. Angelica October 16, 2018 at 4:44 pm #

    He’s me and my husband’s favorite!

  19. Mary October 16, 2018 at 4:49 pm #

    One of the most beautiful voices in existence. Ever since “Want One” have been entranced by his music and talent. What a joy to have him in town!

  20. Eileen Hawes October 16, 2018 at 5:48 pm #

    Rufus Wainwright takes me back to his family legacy of song, sonnet, ballad, father, mother, the McGarrigle Sisters, ultra talented Canadian family, long love affair with all their music mastery, and Rufus. Such a beautiful, different voice. Would love to see him live.

  21. Stephanie M October 16, 2018 at 6:01 pm #

    Hi! I’d love to go!!

  22. Jopey October 16, 2018 at 8:24 pm #

    Wainwright, at the Aladdin!? Not to be missed, this one.

  23. Evan David October 16, 2018 at 11:11 pm #

    I am so ready to experience creative energy. Rufus Wainwright can and does deliver!!

  24. Dave G. October 17, 2018 at 9:03 am #

    Dripping with talent…

  25. Amanda October 17, 2018 at 9:46 am #

    Rufus is a truly spectacular artist. Not sure how I missed this previously… As this show is on my husband’s 40th birthday, it would be a super-cool surprise to win tickets for him!

  26. Alex Gordon October 17, 2018 at 2:19 pm #

    When I was 13 I bought Want One the year it came out and saw him at The Warfield (and then Fillmore, as featured on Want Two DVD). I would just love to go to this one too. I’m 29 now :). Fingers crossed!

  27. Lance October 17, 2018 at 5:24 pm #

    Welcome to the ball

  28. S Newton October 18, 2018 at 10:35 am #

    Otherworldly vocalist.

  29. Crystal October 18, 2018 at 4:36 pm #

    I know just the person who needs these. Me! They would make an amazing gift for someone who adores Rufus. Fingers Crossed!

  30. Monique October 18, 2018 at 5:03 pm #

    I would be so thankful if chosen

  31. Dana October 18, 2018 at 9:03 pm #

    Oh man, I love all the Wainwrights. I’d be so grateful if I won tickets to this.

  32. Katie October 19, 2018 at 11:48 am #

    I’d love to see one of my favorite musicians in person!

  33. Jenny October 19, 2018 at 3:45 pm #

    Yes please!

  34. Robin Casey October 20, 2018 at 5:21 pm #

    If there is anyone to see at any given venue, it’s Rufus Wainwright at the Aladdin Theater! And for a Poses anniversary tour! I would love to get to see him for this!

  35. Patricia Maloy October 20, 2018 at 7:30 pm #

    I would love to take my husband out for special date night!

  36. Cory October 21, 2018 at 9:16 am #

    Tell me something good

  37. Louis October 22, 2018 at 4:57 pm #

    ooh Rufus is wonderful — I want to take my teenager so they can learn what good music sounds like

  38. Jeremy Brill October 22, 2018 at 7:01 pm #

    Sounds Great

  39. Sascha October 23, 2018 at 12:06 pm #

    I have a real nostalgic soft spot for that album!

  40. Angela October 23, 2018 at 12:14 pm #

    Would love to see him live!

  41. Kim October 23, 2018 at 12:25 pm #

    He’s been one of my favorites for so so long. As a fellow musician, I can tell his live show is probably that much better than his recordings, if even possible. Would love the change to get to see him. (:

  42. Natalie October 23, 2018 at 12:33 pm #

    He is amazing! I’d love to see him perform! Pick me please :)

  43. Barbara Dolezal October 23, 2018 at 12:37 pm #

    Funny story… a couple years ago my nephew was snagged off the street in NYC (guitar slung over his shoulder) and asked if he could play piano. He could so was taken to a movie studio and had 15 minutes to learn the piece for the scene because their piano player walked off the set. While he studied the piece Loudon Wainwright lll (Rufus’ dad) who wrote the music for the movie (No Pay, Nudity) strummed on his guitar. He said it was surreal! Then Loudon Wainwright lll came to Sisters Or and I was able to attend his show. Spoke with him after and he remembered my nephew. So cool!

    I think it would be perfect to be able to attend this concert to hear Rufus who has the voice of an angel. I think his dad would agree!

    Thank you!!!

  44. Josh O October 23, 2018 at 12:41 pm #

    This would be an amazing date night!

  45. Bob MacKay October 23, 2018 at 1:33 pm #

    He’s the bomb!

  46. Cat October 23, 2018 at 1:44 pm #

  53. Elizabeth Stanley October 25, 2018 at 2:25 am #

    Oh please I’ll probably cry in public but it will be worth it!

  54. Emma October 25, 2018 at 10:45 am #

    Incredible musician. Enough said.

  55. Erin B October 25, 2018 at 3:19 pm #

    oh my this would be magical*

  56. SK October 25, 2018 at 4:38 pm #

    Enjoyed Louden Wainwright some years ago in MN with Arlo Guthrie. This is a perfect follow up.

  57. Chrisi October 26, 2018 at 10:43 am #

    Fingers crossed

  58. Chrisi October 26, 2018 at 10:44 am #

    It would be great to cross Rufus off the bucket list!

    • Chrisi October 26, 2018 at 10:47 am #

      Oops! Thought it didn’t enter my “fingers crossed” comment. Didn’t mean to enter twice!!!

  67. Danielle October 30, 2018 at 12:43 pm #

    My husband and I have never seen Rufus live. We have also not had a date-night in 12 months. This would make us two, VERY happy parents!

  68. Kim October 30, 2018 at 1:02 pm #

    I’ve always been such a huge Rufus fan! Would love to win!

  69. sarah October 30, 2018 at 1:11 pm #

    Pick me pick me! Love me some Rufus! Thanks!

  72. Najon Naratra October 31, 2018 at 7:01 am #

    Rufus is in a class by himself. Seeing him live is a bucket list dream. His authenticity is what I find most desirable. His voice his and his heart shine through his lyrics. Rufus is a gift. If you picked me, Christmas would be early this year. Please do!!!

  73. Cynthia October 31, 2018 at 9:53 am #

    Love him!!

  74. MARC October 31, 2018 at 12:50 pm #

    I would love to Rufus live. I feel like I need his music now more than I ever have and seeing him live would feel like a sliver of light through all the bullshit in the world right now

  78. Chris November 1, 2018 at 4:14 pm #

    Sounds fun!

  79. davyd November 2, 2018 at 1:23 pm #
