"Candles" is the closing song on Rufus Wainwright's acclaimed new album, Out of the Game, but it was the perfect opener at his performance at the magnificent Church of the Ascension, on Manhattan's lower Fifth Avenue. The historic church was a breathtaking backdrop for the gorgeous tale of searching for a place to light a memorial for his late mother, singer Kate McGarrigle. Resplendent in tails and gold sequined pants, Wainwright paid additional tribute to McGarrigle during the 22-song set with an emotional, solo rendition of her "On My Way to Town" before bringing out super-producer Mark Ronson, who helmed the new album, and closing the evening with the rousing, disco-flavored "Bitter Tears."
