Attn: eBay scalpers, please direct your attention elsewhere...
Here's the inside scoop: It's just been announced that Rufus Wainwright will be performing a special solo show at the tiny, 500-capacity Napa Valley Opera House on Sunday, March 9. The $55 tickets will go on sale THIS FRIDAY, January 25, at 10am.
The different methods for obtaining tickets are outlined here, though I wouldn't recommend the "order by mail" option. If the gushing reports from Wainwright's show in Santa Rosa last year are any indicator, then these tickets are going to disappear instantly.
This show in Napa is Wainwright's only Bay Area appearance on his current tour.
