I’m surprised RuPaul didn’t think of this sooner. The grand dame of RuPaul’s Drag Race is heading out on the road. Correction. Ru herself isn’t going, but she’s sending her trusty hag Michelle Visage to oversee and host the Battle of the Seasons tour. Tickets go on sale today Friday, July 19. No stalling and be sure to act quickly just in case the show in your city sells out.
“I am honored to be the hostess (a.k.a drag mother) to these talented queens, and we are overjoyed to be working with the legendary Live Nation to bring the art of drag to yet another level: theater,” Michelle Visage said. “RuPaul’s Drag Race has given the art form a voice, and we cannot wait to use it at a theater near you!”
Superstars and relentless contestants from five years of the Logo reality competition will meet on the same stage for an unforgettable evening of mischief and mayhem. The dazzling lineup ready to delight audiences with their offbeat, delicious humor and provoked madness are Alaska, Carmen Carrera, Detox, Ivy Winters, Jinkx Monsoon, Manila Luzon, Mimi Imfurst, Pandora Boxx, Phi Phi O’hara, Sharon Needles, and Willam.
This is a one-of-a-kind event, an opportunity to see an eccentric, multi-talented cast of characters compete again. Cities currently announced include New York City (Gramercy Theater – September 6), Huntington, NY (The Paramount – September 7), Chicago (House of Blues – September 11), Indianapolis (Egyptian Room at Old National Centre – September 13), and Minneapolis (Varsity Theater – September 16).
