‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ queens coming to South Florida

“Haters Roast: The Shady Tour” kicks off Friday, Feb. 16 at The Fillmore Miami Beach

Start your engines! Get ready for a night of reads, stingers and zingers only a queen from “RuPaul’s Drag Race” can dish out. Some of the show’s top divas are starring in Murray & Peter’s second annual “Haters Roast: The Shady Tour,” which kicks off at 8 p.m. Friday, Feb. 16 at The Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theatre, 1700 Washington Ave.

Season 5 winner Jinkx Monsoon, who participated in last year’s “Roast,” says the line-up of queens is amazing and it will be a sold-out event.

Monsoon joins Ginger Minj (season 7, All-Stars season 2), Trixie Mattel (season 7, All-Stars season 3), Latrice Royale (season 4, All-Stars season 1), Trinity Taylor (season 9), Thorgy Thor (season 8, All-Stars season 3), Derrick Barry (season 8) and Eureka O’Hara (season 9) in the Miami leg of the tour, which travels to 22 cities and runs through April 9, ending in San Francisco, California.

“I’m so excited to join once more the cast of the ‘Haters Roast: The Shady Tour,’ 2018 edition,” Monsoon said. “Basically it’s a show where me and a bunch of my ‘Drag Race’ sisters get on stage, get a few drinks in us and then tear each other apart, reading each other for filth…It’s a lot of fun. It’s a lot of comedy packed into a short, short space. You’re gonna get a lot of jokes thrown at you — zingers, stingers, jabs and barbs…all in one place.”

Monsoon adds her favorite thing about doing this show is tearing the other queens to shreds.

“Nothing brings us closer together like tearing each other apart,” Monsoon laughs. “I feel like I’m even better friends with all of these girls now that they’ve all called me a fat alcoholic.“

Thor agrees.

“Murray and Peter…they put me on every single date,” Thor said. “So I’m there and I’m going to make fun of my sisters in a very fun way because it’s always fun to make fun of your sisters. There’s some new queens joining and last year, it sold out. So get your tickets now.”

“Haters Roast: The Shady Tour” is hosted by Minj, who warns “you’re gonna want to get your tickets immediately.”

“You do not want to miss all the shade we’re about to throw, all the tea we’re about to spill and all the shenanigans that we’re about to get up to,” Minj said. “See you there.”

Tickets are $39 to $54. Super Fan packages, including a meet and greet with all the queens before the show, are still available at $154. To purchase tickets, visit http://www.DragFans.com, http://www.Ticketmaster.com or http://www.LiveNation.com.
