Rufus Wainwright: Unfollow The Rules – The Paramour Sessions sees Wainwright performing songs from his GRAMMY® Award-nominated 2020 album, Unfollow The Rules, along with two new songs (How To Treat A Lady, and Happy Easter), and was recorded live in a beautiful ballroom at the famed Paramour Mansion in Los Angeles. Wainwright heralded the concert – which first premiered last summer in partnership with ALL ARTS and the WNET Group – with a striking rendition of “Peaceful Afternoon,” on Jimmy Kimmel Live! this past Wednesday. The show was nominated for a NY Emmy for its broadcast on WNET.
