Bianca Del Rio announces all-star support act line-up for Unsanitized UK and Europe tour
Have you ever wanted to be read for filth by Bianca Del Rio?
If so, you’re in luck. Between May and August, the hilariously acerbic queen is bringing her Unsanitized tour to audiences across the UK and Europe. But she won’t be doing it alone.
Bianca Del Rio has scoured the UK’s drag scene to find support acts who can match her razor-sharp tongue and theatrical sensibilities.
Stepping up to the plate for the first five dates is Britain’s Got Talent star Myra DuBois, a seasoned queen who can pull a mean pint and deliver a stiff tongue-lashing in the next breath. The so-called “siren of South Yorkshire” is known for her caustic wit, so fans of Del Rio’s scathing takedowns will no doubt fall for DuBois’ surprisingly charming takedowns.
From the second London date onwards – added due to overwhelming demand – Del Rio will be joined by Mary Mac, a cabaret veteran with a belting voice and a flair for all things musical. Mac has been polishing their stage skills this year as Laika Virgin in the Everybody’s Talking About Jamie tour (which Del Rio has also starred in), so expect a full, flamboyant fantasy.
The last iconic queen to join Del Rio’s Unsanitized tour will be Sherry Vine, a bonafide drag legend and host of the Sherry Vine Variety Show. Since launching her career more than three decades ago, Vine has hustled tirelessly and played a part in some of drag’s most memorable landmark moments – her performances at the trailblazing Wigstock festival are exemplary. The sheer range of her all-star variety show, which features dancing, acting and political commentary, is a mere glimpse at the entertainment magic she’s sure to bring to the tour.
As always with Bianca Del Rio’s shows, expect sky-high wigs, razor-sharp tongues and plenty of audience participation.
“It is unbelievable just how many people in Britain have a sick sense of humour, just like me,” she said of the tour. “If you all want to be treated badly and to be mocked, I’m here to do it. You want dirty, I’m as unsanitised as they come!”
From the success of her Netflix special Hurricane Bianca (and its sequel) to earning the title of the “world’s most powerful drag queen” from New York Magazine, Del Rio has proven time and time again she has the skills to win over any audience.
Accompanied by a glamorous cast of equally sharp queens, she looks set to once again build on her reputation as one of the wittiest queens in Drag Race history.
