Halloween comes early as The Boulet Brothers Dragula Tour returns to Ireland

Roll up roll up for grand return of the wildest, creepiest, most demonic drag show in creation.

Feel a sudden chill like something just walked over your grave? That’s because the monsters are coming – The Boulet Brothers are bringing their Dragula Tour back to Ireland.

We may be in the heart of summer but before you know it, the leaves will start to turn and September 1 will be upon us, along with the most terrifyingly entertaining group of drag supermonsters. And on that fateful night, Dublin’s Grand Social will play host to the legendary Boulets and some of the wickedly talented creatures from their Dragula Tour.

Alongside the deathly duo, you can clamp your eyes on Season Two star Victoria Elizabeth Black and, from the Season Three freak show, Evah Destruction, Landon Cider, Louisianna Purchase, Priscilla Chambers and Saint Lucia.

For those who haven’t been formally introduced, the search for next drag supermonster is created by the hideously glamorous duo The Boulet Brothers with the intention of highlighting the darker side of drag. It pits a group of dementedly beautiful fiends against each other, all battling to the death to claim the twisted Dragula crown.

For the unlucky monsters who fall into the bottom each episode, forget lip-synching for your life, in order to survive Dragula, they have to go waaaay further. Challengers have competed to see who can be pierced by the most body modification needles, been buried alive, ate pig brains and fought in a desert Thunderdome. All the good stuff, basically.

And before the dark carnival rolls into town, you can enjoy (subject your soul) to the new series, which will drag its carcass onto our screens in August.

With last year’s Irish live date being an absolute masterclass in entertainment, fans of drag and horror would need to be as dumb as a zombie to miss the show.
