Rufus Wainwright - Unfollow The Rules

Oval Hall | Sheffield City Hall

Ahead of being the first guest for the Royal Albert Hall’s special isolation sessions ‘RAHome’ this evening (9th April), acclaimed singer-songwriter Rufus Wainwright has announced a run of UK dates this winter, arriving in Sheffield in October!


Rufus releases his eagerly anticipated new pop album UNFOLLOW THE RULES, on BMG on 10th July.


Known for his incredibly engaging live performances, Rufus returns to the UK with a brand new band for the tour: LA musician Brian Green (John Legend, Michael Bublé, Pomplamoose) as music director and guitar; Rachel Eckroth (KT Tunstall, Antelog) on keyboard and backing vocals; Jacob Mann on keyboard, piano and backing vocals; Kyle Crane on drums; and Sam Wilkes on bass and backing vocals. 

Playing a set list of classics and new cuts from his highly anticipated new album, the dates are sure to be one of the highlights of the year.

Speaking of the tour Rufus said ‘I am excited to tour the UK in the late fall with my new band, performing the songs from my upcoming album release. I consider Unfollow the Rules my first fully mature album; it is like a bookend to the beginning of my career. He continues ‘For me, thinking about this tour is like a light at the end of this dark tunnel that we are all in together. It gives me hope and confidence that we will rise above this collectively. And while it might seem that we are not moving forward swiftly in this dark long tunnel, I know that we will reach the light again and be able to be together and listen to and play music together. I cannot wait to be part of that moment for my fans and share this music live with them’.
