The biggest stars of RuPaul’s Drag Race are coming to Melbourne for a massive live show

RuPaul’s Drag Race fans may be feeling a little fatigued by the number of ‘Ru Girls’ touring through Australia; many of the more than 140 queens who have starred in the show have already performed Down Under, some multiple times. However, Werq the World is shaping up to be the tour not to miss. With a lineup of some of the show’s most popular queens coming to the Palais Theatre on February 8, this spectacular stage show will feature high-stakes choreography, music, and eye-popping production values to feast your senses on.

Whatever you do, don’t wear green, because RuPaul’s right-hand woman Michelle Visage will be hosting alongside fashion-forward Season 10 winner Aquaria at the helm of a stacked line-up. She’ll be joined by reigning Season 11 winner the spooky-ooky Yvie OddlyAll Stars 4 co-crownee, Monét X Change; Miss Vanjie herself, Vanessa Vanjie Mateo; the Season 7 winner with the tiniest waist in the game, Violet Chachki; along with fan-favourites including sweetheart Asia O’Hara (Australia’s butterflies are quaking); the trade of Season 10, Kameron MichaelsNaomi Smalls (and her leg-endary legs, legs, legs); the offensively stunning Plastique Tiara; the Anime-inspired illusions of Kim Chi; and veteran lewk-turner Detox, coming at you with a slow verse. This is the second-last stop on a huge Australia and New Zealand tour, with Yvie Oddly mysteriously missing from the final show in Sydney.

After the popularity of the first UK season of Drag Race in 2019, Australia has been promised its own iteration of the series, due to start in 2020. Till then, don’t be left behind at the bus stop! Let’s get sickening with the biggest stars of the juggernaut reality franchise when they bring their eleganza extravaganza to Sydney.
