Yes, you heard right – the queens are coming to town. And by queens, I do mean Drag Queens. The cast of RuPaul’s Drag Race vs The World, will be performing at Bournemouth’s own, O2 Academy on May 3rd 2024.

The tour will bring iconic collaborations with our favourite queens from a variety of seasons of Drag Race, all to coincide with the airing of BBC 3’s Ru Paul’s Drag Race: UK vs The World series two.

What to expect?

You will see some serves and slays from queens like Choriza May, Gothy Kendall and Scarlet Envy. Accompanied by the show’s iconic, Michelle Visage and her trusted sidekicks, UK television stars Alan Carr and Graham Norton.

RuPaul’s Drag Race UK Series two star, Tia Kofi, spoke of her excitement for the tour to come to Bournemouth. She said: “This is my home, and I can’t wait to tour with my fellow drag sisters for nine crazy nights. It’s going to be huge, and we’re so ready for it, so don’t miss out.”
