Bimini Bon-Boulash is getting ready to travel the UK and Ireland this autumn as the only UK-based performer on the RuPaul’s Drag Race: Werq the World tour. 

Werq the World is scheduled to make an appearance at Dublin’s 3Arena on October 18. The tour, which has been described as “​​an all-new Sci-Fi production specially designed for large venues and arenas,” will be Bimini’s second appearance in the Irish capital this year after headlining the Mother Pride Block Party back in June. 

Speaking on the experience of performing original music from her upcoming album When the Party Ends, and working alongside Drag Race Season 6 winner Bianca Del Rio, Bimini told GCN“I mean, listen, Dublin’s always a good time and I always have a lot of fun. And I got to meet Bianca, which was mad because I’d never met Bianca before.”

Bimini went on to describe Del Rio as one of the “most memorable queens” to come out of the Drag Race franchise. 

Looking forward to the upcoming Werq the World tour, Bimini shared her excitement and her feelings regarding being the only UK queen on the tour. 

“I know that the US girlies put on a big production, so, as the only UK representative on this line-up, I need to bring it,” Bimini said.

“I’m really excited to kind of represent the UK, though. I am interested to see how it kind of translates with everyone. I think everyone’s going to be so excited to see the US queens, but to be the only UK queen, it’s quite mad. I’ve got a lot on my shoulders.”


The London-based artist, who was the runner-up of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK Season 2, similarly expressed that the Werq the World tour has given her a chance to return to her roots as a dancer. 

“This summer, I’ve been basically touring and doing festivals with my band,” Bimini told GCN.

“For anyone who’s come to see me over the last year, [Werq the World] is going to be completely different. I started drag as a performer doing things with elements of burlesque, so things like chair choreography, but then I bring pole dancing into it. I like to do kind of gravity-defying stuff, and I’m getting to bring that back on this tour.

“I’m excited for people to see a side of me that they might have seen on the Drag Race UK Season 2 tour, but that they haven’t gotten to see over the last year,” she added. 

Bimini will be joined on the 3Arena stage by US Drag Race royalty like ​​Jaida Essence Hall, Aquaria, Vanessa Vanjie Mateo, Angeria Paris Van Michaels, Bosco, Daya Betty, Kandy Muse and Ginger Minj. 

“I’m really excited to finally properly meet Aquaria, because we’ve spoken, but we’ve never actually officially crossed paths yet,” Bimini concluded. “I think it’s just going to be a hoot meeting all the girls, to be honest.”

Tickets for RuPaul’s Drag Race: Werq the World at Dublin’s 3Arena on October 18 are on sale now.
