I'm not saying this isn't strange, but it's not the craziest idea I've ever heard. Specifically if it's part of a performance. I mean we're talking about Rufus Wainwright here. It's not like Blink 182 asked people to not clap or cheer for them on stage, or Aerosmith making this request. It's a piano player and as the article says it's for the first set out of the two, I'm sure whatever the reasoning is... it'll make sense within the performance itself. I mean... it's not like he's John Cage going out there to perform 4'33''

The hate should go away, it is a part of the performance. The continuity of the songs from one to the other can be heard, if you would listen to the new record you would see that.

yeah, this really isn't that big of a deal at all and in no way warrants the idiotic comments. obviously some of you are unfamiliar with the artist in question.
