Sanremo Music Festival 2023
Netflix’s hugely popular video series I Like to Watch is on the road this September and October, embarking on a fantastically camp tour of the UK, bringing the shows outrageous humour live to LGBT+ venues across the country.
Travelling between cities in a fabulously flamboyant kitsch motorhome fit for our Queens, the venues will be given an I Like To Watch living room-style makeover, immersing attendees and bringing them closer to the action than ever before.
The tour started on September 4th at Londons Mighty Hoopla, where the motorhome was be parked-up to give festival-goers drag makeovers, before it hits the road, visiting Margate, Bournemouth, Nottingham, Glasgow and Swansea, before a final stop in Hull on October 20th.
Each night of the tour will be hosted by a rotating cast of fan favourites, including RuPauls Drag Race UK winner The Vivienne, Tia Kofi, Cheryl Hole and Tayce, who will be partnered with up-and-coming Queens, local to each of the venues. Fans will get up close and personal with our Queens, watching and critiquing films including Pitch Perfect, Netflixs Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga and Hes All That in their own unique style.
After a year in which venues and drag artists saw their industry struggle tremendously with work disappearing overnight due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the I Like To Watch tour is an opportunity to celebrate and support LGBT+ performers and the venues which act as a vital resource for the community.
I’m so excited to be taking I Like To Watch on the road says The Vivienne. We’ve all had a shocker over the last year or so, and queens and LGBT+ venues have really struggled. I’ve made a career working in bars all over the UK, so I know how vital they are to our community. We want to give everybody a camp time, but fingers crossed our tour can help local scenes as they start to find their feet again.”
