Let’s have a kiki: RuPaul’s Drag Race Werq The World announces UK and Ireland tour

Starring some of the show's favourite Queens

RuPaul’s Drag Race Werq The World has unveiled a number of UK and Ireland dates set for next Spring.

Described in a press release as “the largest drag production ever produced,” the show stars some of the show’s best-known drag queens including Shangela, Sharon Needles, Alyssa Edwards, Detox and Season 10 winner Aquaria.

Hosted by the show’s judge Michelle Visage, the story will follow the queens as they attempt to save our solar system from an unknown dark entity, intent on harnessing its power.

Speaking to Digital Spy, Aquaria said: “Since this is my first time performing with the tour in every major UK city, it’s going to feel like my first day of school again,” she said. “But I will feel right at home since these fans are the definition of stans!

“And with this year’s show, we’re reaching for the stars – of course, it’s a bit more literal this time! Can’t wait for everyone to see what stunts are being pulled by your favourite queens.”

Earlier this month, the first UK version of RuPaul’s Drag Race was confirmed. RuPaul’s Drag Race UK is set to air on BBC Three, with British drag queens forming the centre of the show. The hugely popular talent contest is already one of America’s highest rated TV shows and consistently attracts star-studded guest judge spots from the likes of Khloe Kardashian and Lady Gaga.
