Rufus Wainwright Profile On CBS Sunday Morning On August 19th

NEW YORK, Aug. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Coming off of national appearances on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Conan, and The Late Show With David Letterman, Rufus Wainwright will be featured on CBS Sunday Morning.  A Sunday morning staple since 1979, the profile on Rufus will air on August 19th. CBS Sunday Morning is broadcast Sundays from 9:00-10:30 AM ET on the CBS Television Network. 

Following on the heels of his first leg of a critically acclaimed summer tour, Rufus is gearing up for another round of shows this Fall. "Rufus Wainwright is one of the few live performers who can enthrall an entire crowd with his voice alone," says Piet Levy, reviewing one of Rufus' summer shows for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "He clearly felt deeply – very deeply – for the material. Each song seemed to matter; each gesture felt personal." See below for a full list of US tour dates or visit http://www.rufuswainwright.com/tour/ for ticketing details and full international show info.

Wainwright's video for Will Ferrell's online comedy giant Funny or Die premiered in June and he was also featured on NPR's World Cafe as well as a segment on Extra. Up next for Rufus is an appearance on NPR's Tiny Desk on August 27th.

Out Of The Game, Wainwright's collaboration with mega-producer Mark Ronson, debuted Top 25 in retail and has received widespread critical acclaim. Randall Roberts from the Los Angeles Times called Rufus' "ability to maneuver through complex emotions one of Wainwright's strengths" and calls Out Of The Game "an essential recording." Mikael Wood from the Entertainment Weekly calls the album "a lush, soul-infused disc..." with People Magazine's Chuck Arnold proclaiming "the theatrical Wainwright scores an outright winner with more accessible fare."
