BenDeLaCreme & Jinkx Monsoon announce Holiday show 2023 tour

The Jinkx & DeLa Holiday Show will embark on an international 30-city tour, DeLa & Jinkx’s biggest yet, with more shows and surprises to be announced!

You better watch out, you better not cry, because global drag icons and RuPaul’s Drag Race stars, BenDeLaCreme and Jinkx Monsoon are coming back to your town with the wildly successful, internationally acclaimed, The Jinkx & DeLa Holiday Show (Produced by BenDeLaCreme Presents).

The 30-city international tour marks the duo’s biggest tour yet, featuring more cities, more shows, and even bigger theaters (including the iconic Dolby Theatre). The tour will run from November 12 – December 30 across the US, UK, and Canada with a new show written by DeLa and Jinkx.

Presales begin July 19 at 10 a.m. local time for the US & Canada and July 26 at 10 a.m. BST for the UK. Tickets go on general sale July 21 at 10 a.m. ET for US & Canada, and July 28 at 10 a.m. BST for the UK at JinkxandDeLa.com.

Following the massive success of four previous holiday tours, and a cult-classic holiday film (The Jinkx & DeLa Holiday Special, 2020), fans can expect another year of fabulous spectacle, whip-smart comedy, brand new songs, and annual favorites. Join the sugary DeLa and the spicy Jinkx for an evening The New York Times says is “sure to lift your spirits and make you howl with laughter.”

But as we all know, 2023 is a pivotal role for the LGBTQ+ community, and one in which we have come under attack from the Right wing’s weaponizing of drag.

BenDeLaCreme says, “With all the hatred, darkness, and misinformation flying around our world today, it is an honor and a privilege to spend the holidays with tens of thousands of audience members each year, creating joyous community spaces where we can gather strength through laughter and celebration. Whether you consider it the most wonderful time of year or the most troubling, we’re here to tell you… you’re right! So let’s make it our own.”

Monsoon adds, “It’s been a wild year, so let’s end it wildly. DeLa and I strive to entertain while we enlighten and enliven. The Jinkx & Dela Holiday Show is not only a moment of respite, but also of community, at a time where we need our chosen family and community most of all. So add us to your holiday plans, or let us BE your holiday plans— either way, you’re welcome to join us.”

The Jinkx & DeLa Holiday Show is co-written and co-created by BenDeLaCreme and Jinkx Monsoon, directed by BenDeLaCreme, produced by BenDeLaCreme Presents (a company comprised of producers BenDeLaCreme, Kevin Heard, Gus Lanza, and Associate Producer Jin Moon), and promoted by AEG Presents Comedy Division.
