The official RuPaul’s Drag Race UK season two tour is the gift that keeps giving, as even more shows have been added to the schedule.

Due to huge demand from fans of the series, there will be an extra 12 dates in spring 2022, bringing the total number of shows to a whopping 41.

The additional shows will take place between 24 March and 17 April, with tickets going on sale this Friday (9 April 2021) via Ticketmaster.

The tour will feature the entire cast of series two of Drag Race UK including winner Lawrence Chaney and finalists Bimini Bon Boulash, Tayce and Ellie Diamond.

This was confirmed after some confusion among fans and the queens themselves as the original tour poster only featured the four finalists.

Contestants including Ginny Lemon, Veronica Green, A’Whora and Joe Black called out World of Wonder and Drag Race for only featuring the finalists while, “the rest of us will be divvied out slots.”

The latest poster features all the queens of series two but also a small disclaimer saying ‘line-up subject to change’, so watch this space.

However if you were lucky enough to get tickets for the London Palladium shows on 27-28 February and 1 March, it’s been announced that the queens will be joined by The Frock Destroyers, namely Divina de Campo, Baga Chipz and Blu Hydrangea.

The girl group who formed on series one of the UK franchise will perform at the three shows, and you can of course expect to hear their unforgettable single “Break Up Bye Bye”, which found chart success off the back of a girl group challenge.

The 41-date tour will visit towns and cities across the UK between February and April, 2022 including Manchester, Glasgow, Newcastle, Liverpool, Cardiff and Birmingham.

Tickets are priced between £40-£140 and those for the newly announced shows go on sale at 10am on Friday, 9 April via Ticketmaster, while some of the theatre shows will also be available from ATGTickets.
