Rufus Wainwright and Aimee Mann: 9/12/2021

So I have to confess that this concert was not high on my list of shows I wanted to attend, basically because I did not know much of Rufus Wainwright’s music, and because I had seen Aimee Mann twice, once solo and once with Til Tuesday. But my wife wanted to go, so I got tickets.

Aimee Mann opened the show, and she was as cool as always. I really like her music a lot. Her set was fairly short and included some songs from her upcoming album, which is music she wrote for a musical version of “Girl, Interrupted.”

After a brief intermission, Rufus took the stage in some pretty colorful attire, which included some bright red sequined shoes which would have served Dorothy well while in Oz. His songs were well-written and he sounded great, but it was definitely a laid-back show. There was no dancing or anything like that. But I liked it. High point for me personally was when he performed a cover version of Neil Young’s “Harvest.” Being a huge Neil Young fan, that one spoke to me.

Anyway, here are the setlists for those who are interested.
