Throughout the pandemic, drag has been one art form that has kept us all going, entertaining us through the darkest of days. Drag mother herself, RuPaul, has been hard at work producing more variations of her hit television show, RuPaul’s Drag Race, than there are variants of COVID-19! RuPaul’s Drag Race UK Seasons 2 and 3 dominated our television screens amid the pandemic, with the culmination spinoff series RuPaul’s Drag Race UK vs. The World concluding just recently.
For the first time ever, queens featured on RuPaul’s Drag Race Series 1, 2 and 3, as well as RuPaul’s Drag Race UK vs. The World are invading the United States to battle it out on the main stage in cities throughout the country including New York, LA and Chicago. The show will feature hilarity, hijinks and live performances by some of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK’s most unforgettable queens from all three seasons, including Baga Chipz, Awhora, Divina DiCampo, Krystal Versace and many more including international queens Lemon, Janey Jacké and Pangina Heals!
“It’s a brand-Ru year and these queens are storming the USA with fierce looks, campy theatrics and cheeky production numbers that will leave fans spitting out their tea and crumpets,” promises producer Brandon Voss. “The tour is a collaborative effort and it’s incredible to watch these international stars come together on some unbelievably creative numbers. You won’t find this unique combination of talent, production and fan interaction with any other drag tour out there.” “Audiences in the USA are completely barmy over the queens of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK,” says producer Jon Norris. If fans are lucky, they might get to see a performance from some of the most notable Drag Race girl groups, United Kingdolls and The Frock Destroyers (UK Hun? Wanna Break Up, Bye Bye?)
The tour will kick off in San Francisco, California on May 20th and continue through May 27 in Washington DC, with stops in Boston, New York, Chicago and Dallas. This tour offers US fans one of the first opportunities to see these international drag sensations and superstars live on American stages throughout the country! This tour is surely not to be missed as it’s overflowing with talent, energy and big names.
