Rufus Wainwright - Milwaukee at Last!!!Canada’s outrageously talented artist returns with a CD/DVD package drawn from his 2007 sold-out performance at the Pabst Theatre. The title’s three exclamation points prove that Rufus has lost none of his ironic edge and that exuberance is on full display in live renditions of mostly songs from his Release the Stars album. The DVD includes earlier Rufus classics and captures all his theatricality, from high-heeled shoes, striped suits, brooches, lederhosen and the fluffy white bathrobes his fans have come to love.
