The queens of RuPaul’s Drag Race will unleash their own brand of hilarity and hijinks upon the world this Summer, with the RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE WERQ THE WORLD 2017 tour, coming to Dublin’s Olympia Theatre on June 1st (List of Tour Dates and Venues below).
Hosted by Bianca Del Rio, Michelle Visage and Shangela, the live stage show will feature some of the series’ most unforgettable queens, including Alyssa Edwards, Detox, Latrice Royale, and Willam, as well as some of the new ladies from season nine like Aja, Peppermint, Sasha Velour and Trinity Taylor.
“This is the most outrageous and talented collection of queens that have ever toured together,” declares Shangela. “We’re calling this the ‘WERQ the World’ tour because that’s exactly what these Drag Race stars will be doing for fans: WERQing like they’ve never WERQ’d it before!”
“It’s been a year since the last world tour, and these queens are coming with fierce new looks, never-before-seen theatrics and over the top production numbers that will leave fans gagging”
continues producer Brandon Voss.
He notes it will be especially interesting for fans to witness how the season nine queens stack up against the veterans:
“The show is a collaborative effort between some of the biggest personalities to come through RuPaul’s Drag Race. It’s incredible to see this multi-talented cast of new girls and veterans coming together on some unbelievably creative numbers”.
