In a series of special performances hosted by Michelle Visage, superstar contestants from five years of Logo TV’s RuPaul’s Drag Race will meet on the same stage for an unforgettable evening of mischief and mayhem.
Live Nation has announced the Battle of the Seasons Tour, bringing together a dazzling lineup. Alaska, Carmen Carrera, Detox, Ivy Winters, Jinkx Monsoon, Manila Luzon, Mimi Imfurst, Pandora Boxx, Phi Phi O’hara, Sharon Needles and Willam will delight audiences with offbeat humor and provoked madness.
“I am honored to be the hostess (aka 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,” Visage said. “RuPaul’s Drag Race has given the artform a voice, and we cannot wait to use it at a theater near you!”
This one-of-a-kind event is an opportunity to see the show’s eccentric, multi-talented cast of characters compete once again. Cities currently announced include New York City (Gramercy Theater), Huntington, N.Y. (The Paramount), Chicago (House of Blues), Indianapolis (Egyptian Room at Old National Centre) and Minneapolis (Varsity Theater). Tickets go on sale Friday, July 19.
No word yet on an L.A. date, but our fingers are crossed!
