LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — Striptease queen Dita Von Teese is teaming up with Live Nation to bring what is billed as the ‘world’s biggest burlesque show’ to North America in 2023.
The ‘Glamontrix’ tour is scheduled to get underway at the Paramount Theatre in Seattle on January 27th with 20 additional shows across the U.S. before concluding at the Fox Performing Arts Center in Los Angeles on February 24th.
Major market stops include the Majestic Theater in Dallas on Jan. 20; the Tabernacle in Atlanta on Jan. 29,; Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Toronto on Feb. 4; The Beacon in NYC on Feb. 9; and the Chicago Theatre in Chicago, Il. on Feb. 14.
Dita Von Teese just concluded a run which hit historic theaters in the UK and Europe, including The London Palladium, Opera Garnier Monte Carlo, Folies Bergère and Vienna’s Burgtheatre.
The tour will feature a re-imagined 1940s burlesque experience, with comedy, and striptease highlighting diversity and individuality. Casting will showcase male, female, and gender-fluid performers from around the world, according to Live Nation.
“For me, burlesque has always been about finding my own confidence, liberating the taboo of striptease with fantastical stripscapes, while encouraging others to indulge in and enjoy their own sensuality. Glamour is the art of creating mystery and allure, and the new “Glamonatrix” show speaks to unapologetic sensual power with a fun fetishistic twist.” says Von Teese. She continues, “I feel so fortunate that burlesque has come to symbolize a celebration of beauty and sensuality in many forms, a place where diversified icons take the stage and inspire others. I’m proud to be a part of the modern burlesque movement and I’m grateful to have the chance to tour with performers who change people’s minds about striptease.”
