One of the most anticipated concerts of the summer has just multiplied itself. Rufus Wainwright has added a second appearance to his scheduled show on June 3 at Ronit Farm near Kibbutz Gaash. The celebrated American singer/songwriter will also bring his eight-piece band to Reading 3 in Tel Aviv for a more intimate show the next night, June 4.

The 39-year-old son of 1970s folksingers Kate McGarrigle and Loudon Wainwright III gave two soldout solo performances last year, and boasted of “eating my way through Jaffa.”

His June shows are part of a world tour in honor of Wainwright’s seventh studio album, Out of the Game, produced by Mark Ronson (of Amy Winehouse fame).

Wainwright has called it “the most pop album I’ve ever made” and it features guest appearances bv Wilco’s Nels Cline, Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Nick Zinner, Sean Lennon and Wainwright’s sister Martha.
