During a recent interview with Hour about his upcoming album Out of the Game, when asked about the prospect of a show in Montreal in the near future, Rufus Wainwright mentionned that “There’ll be a pleasant surprise with that.” When asked when that would be (this summer? this fall?), he simply said, “It’ll be this year. Definitely this year.”
Well, La Presse has been told that said surprise would be a free outdoor show at Place des Festivals on the opening day of the Montreal Jazz Festival, June 28.
