Rufus! Rufus! Rufus! Does Judy! Judy! Judy!: Live from the London Palladium is a DVD by the Canadian-American singer-songwriter Rufus Wainwright, released under Geffen Records in December 2007.[1] The film consists of live recordings from his sold-out February 25, 2007 tribute concert at the London Palladium to the legendary American actress and singer Judy Garland. The DVD complements the release of Wainwright's Grammy Award-nominated double album, Rufus Does Judy at Carnegie Hall,[2] which contains the same songs from Garland's well-known 1961 album, Judy at Carnegie Hall. The DVD also includes several songs not included on Wainwright's album release.

Guests on the DVD include Martha Wainwright ("Stormy Weather", "Someone to Watch Over Me"), one of Garland's daughters, Lorna Luft ("After You've Gone", "Hello Bluebird"), along with Kate McGarrigle (piano—"Over the Rainbow" and "Ev'ry Time We Say Goodbye").

Tribute concerts[edit]

Due to popular demand, Wainwright's tribute was performed a total of six times. After tickets for the first show (June 14, 2006 at Carnegie Hall in New York City) sold out, a second show was added at the same venue for the following night (June 15). Increased demand resulted in three concerts in Europe: February 18, 2007 at the London Palladium in London, February 20 at L'Olympia in Paris, and February 25 once again at the London Palladium.[3][4] The final performance was on September 23, 2007 at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, California.[5]
