Musician returns to Rome after cancelling concert in July
Rufus Wainwright performs a greatest hits concert in Rome on Thursday 25 September at the Monk Club in the Tiburtina area of the city.
Wainwright had been due to present Vibrate, a collection of his best songs to date, at the Auditorium Parco della Musica on 3 July but the concert was cancelled after he missed his flight.
The American-Canadian singer-songwriter and composer has recorded seven studio albums of original music, the last of which was Out of the Game in 2012.
From a prominent musical family, Wainwright shot to fame in 1998 with his self-titled debut album which Rolling Stone magazine described as one of the best albums that year.
The musician plays piano and guitar, often switching between the two instruments when performing live.
Doors open at the gardens of Monk 20.00, concert starts at 21.00. For full details see the Facebook page of Monk Club.
