After selling out her first show international Queen of Burlesque Dita Von Teese has added an extra Dublin date to her show, DITA VON TEESE: GLAMONATRIX.

Dita Von Teese’s sensational tour sold out five nights at The London Palladium and her May 2 Dublin date but the burlesque superstar added a second Dublin date in the Olympia May 3.

Dita takes audiences on a stunning visual journey with one show-stopping performance after another. The ‘Glamonatrix’ tour boasts no less than four spectacular all-new acts for Dita, each one more lavish than the last.

Smothered in Swarovski crystal, she reinvents the classic burlesque ‘surprise cake’ routine with a massive bejewelled cake, freshly served with a delightful whimsicality. For the jaw-dropping ‘Lipteese’ number, Dita evokes a John Willie retro-fetish dream, riding her giant sparkling lipstick to energetic remixes.

This tour follows on from Von Teese’s ‘The Art of the Teese’ tour which was record-breaking and the most successful burlesque tour of all time.

“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,” said Von Teese speaking about burlesque.

Dita Von Teese has received wide acclaim from the likes of Jean Paul Gaultier, Philip Treacy and Steven Spielberg.

Irish designer Philip Treacy said, “Dita Von Teese is the undisputed Queen of Burlesque. Her shows epitomise Glamour, beauty, and elegance. The colours the panache, the otherworldly visual of her performance is unparalleled! She is a global phenomenon, the ultimate in style entertainment! I loved it!”.
