Rufus Wainwright is offering fans going to his forthcoming UK shows, which kick off tomorrow night (October 13) in Gateshead, the chance to perform on stage with him.

Wainwright will select a special guest from the audience each night to perform the spoken word part from his song ‘Between My Legs’.

Previous guest stars to have performed the same part include comedienne Dawn French and Jake Gyllenhaal.


To be part of Wainwright’s show, simply go to YouTube’s ‘Rufus Wainwright Tour Auditions’ group and post your own rendition of the spoken word part in 60 seconds or less.

Entrants to the competition must already have a ticket to one of the shows. No band members or their families are eligible.

You must also send your full name, email address, name of your YouTube video and link to the video, and which venue you will be attending to:
