CINCINNATI, OH – After sold-out shows in Europe, the queens of RuPaul’s Drag Race return to North America this fall in their WERQ THE WORLD TOUR 2018, making a much anticipated stop at the Aronoff Center’s Procter & Gamble Hall on Thursday, October 18 at 9:00 PM. RuPaul’s Drag Race Werq the World Tour 2018 is part of Cincinnati Arts Association’s 2018-19 Presenting Season.
Tickets go on sale Wednesday, August 1 at 10:00 AM at www.CincinnatiArts.org, (513) 621-ARTS , and the Aronoff Center and Music Hall Ticket Offices. Group discount tickets for ten or more are available by calling (513) 977-4157.
Host Michelle Visage will introduce sickening live performances by some of the series’ most unforgettable queens, including newly crowned Season 10 winner Aquaria; runner-ups Asia O’Hara, Kameron Michaels, and Eureka; Season 8 winner Bob the Drag Queen; and veteran queens Kim Chi and Violet Chachki.
“Werq the World is the OFFICIAL Drag Race tour for a reason,” says Michelle Visage. “This is a theatrical production of the highest caliber with Drag Race favorites delivering what you crave! You will leave the theater walking on air with joy. It’s a night you won’t soon forget!”
“These queens are celebrating a decade of RuPaul’s Drag Race with fierce looks, never-before-seen theatrics and over the top production numbers,” adds producer Brandon Voss. “The tour is a collaborative effort and it’s incredible to watch the girls come together on some unbelievably creative numbers.”
Voss Events is a leading production company that consistently delivers superior entertainment programming. Past events have featured stars such as Lady Gaga and Cher.
Produced by Voss Events, Drag Race producers World of Wonder, and VH1, the hilarity and hijinks will travel to thirty-two North American cities throughout the USA and Canada beginning September 5th in NYC and ending October 27th in Miami. Major stops along the way include Chicago, Toronto, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Following North America, the RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE 2018 WERQ THE WORLD tour will move on to Asia and Australia.
