RuPaul's Drag Race - Werq The World
21 October 2023
The largest drag show on earth, RuPaul’s Drag Race: Werq The World, is heading to Liverpool with an all-new production this autumn.
RuPaul’s Drag Race Werq The World Tour 2023 will sashay into arenas across the UK and Ireland for 12 huge glittering shows featuring fan favourite drag queens from the US.
And fans in Liverpool need to prepare for an evening of endless extravaganza when the tour visits M&S Bank Arena on Saturday October 21.
Acclaimed for their amazing production values, this is the fifth iteration of the ground-breaking tour in the UK.
Set in a dystopian future, the stars of RuPaul’s Drag Race must choose between the real world and the
artificial world they have come to know. The 2023 show delivers an all-new Sci-Fi production specially
designed for large venues and arenas, so join Season 12 Winner Jaida Essence Hall and Season 10 winner
Aquaria, along with Rosé, Angeria, Bosco, Daya Betty, Kandy Muse and Ginger Minj and prepare to be
wowed at the world’s largest drag production.
RuPaul’s Drag Race Werq The World Tour 2023 is presented by Live Nation and Cuffe and Taylor in the UK
and US-based Voss events in collaboration with World of Wonder and MTV.
Show producer Brandon Voss said: “We’ve really elevated the show this year with a cohesive story line that
weaves theatre into large scale concert style performance. It’s a multimillion-dollar production that rivals the largest popstars in the world.”
“WERQ THE WORLD is the official RuPaul’s Drag Race tour for a reason,” added Jon Norris of Voss Events. “It is the biggest, most spectacular drag show on the planet. The music, sets, fashion, choreography and lighting in this production are like nothing fans of drag have ever seen before.”
And Ben Hatton, Director of Theatre Touring for Cuffe and Taylor, said: “These shows will be exciting, cheeky, outrageous and hugely entertaining – everything you’d expect from the worldwide phenomenon that is RuPaul’s Drag Race. We are very excited to be presenting the full tour across the UK and Ireland and look forward to seeing these fabulous queens sashay into packed arenas for 12 nights of fun"
