Dita to premiere glamorous new tour in Oz
Coming off the back of the most successful burlesque tour of all time, Dita Von Teese has announced she will return to Australian later this year with an even bigger show.
The Queen of Burlesque will today announce a 10-date Australian tour and world premiere of her all-new revue, Dita Von Teese: Glamonatrix - which will begin in Perth on November 19 before shows at Brisbane's QPAC and the Gold Coast's The Star on November 24 and 26 respectively.
It is the American's third tour to Australia and comes off the back of her The Art of the Teese, which was the most successful burlesque tour of all time.
"I came home more inspired than ever and got straight into building new acts. I am coming back with an even bigger show than I've ever toured with before," Von Teese, 46, said.
"For me, burlesque has always been about finding my own power and confidence, embracing sensuality and encouraging others to do the same in their own lives."
"I feel so fortunate that burlesque has come to symbolise a celebration of beauty and sensuality in many forms, a place where unlikely 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 that change people's minds about striptease."
Glamonatrix will premiere four new acts, including Von Teese emerging from a massive bejewelled cake smothered in Swarovski crystals, riding her giant sparkling lipstick to remixes, including by Australian artist Andrew Armstrong, wielding a crystallised whip as a big cat tamer, and an update of her famous martini glass performed with an ensemble cast. Dirty Martini and Australian star Zelia Rose will feature in that act.
Tickets go on sale from 2pm on Friday, June 28 at www.tegdainty.com.
