Rufus Wainwright (#503H) Duration: 56:46 STEREO TVPG
Resplendent in tails and gold sequined pants, Rufus Wainwright pays tribute to his late mother, singer Kate McGarrigle, with "Candles" (a single from his acclaimed new album, Out of the Game) and an emotional, solo rendition of her "On My Way to Town." Later in the 22-song set, Wainwright brings out super-producer Mark Ronson, who helmed the new album, and closes the evening with the rousing, disco-flavored "Bitter Tears."
