RuPaul’s BenDeLaCreme coming to Salt Lake

Listen to this article

RuPaul’s Drag Race star, BenDeLaCreme, will come to Salt Lake City as part of her biggest solo tour yet as star and producer with her narrative-cabaret, “BenDeLaCreme is … READY TO BE COMMITTED.” This one-queen extravaganza promises to be a “hilarious and heartfelt spectacular that blends burlesque, comedy, and original music with her signature Terminally Delightful charm.” 

DeLa appeared on two seasons of “RuPaul’s Drag Race,“ being crowned Miss Congeniality on Season 6, returning to compete on the third season of “RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars” where she garnered more challenge wins than any other competitor in the show’s history.

“After years of people asking the aggressively effervescent queen if she can ‘please, settle down,’ BenDeLaCreme is finally ready to tie the knot in something besides her corset. Now, all she needs is a potential spouse. And a dress. And a cake. And the ability to consider others,” organizers explained. “It’s a relay race to the altar as DeLa dodges pervy Grindr suitors, bitchy wedding-cake-toppers, and the errant arrows of Cupid himself! Join the blushing bride as she tackles the pitfalls of love, marriage, and romance in a limited engagement about the limitations of engagements.”

After the original iteration of the “Ready to Be Committed” tour was postponed in 2020, the 2022 tour has increased in size. BenDeLaCreme’s 2021 holiday tour, “The Return of the Jinkx & DeLa Holiday Show, LIVE!” with co-star Jinkx Monsoon, marked the queen’s highest-grossing tour under BenDeLaCreme Presents. She also became the first drag queen to produce a feature film (under pandemic restrictions) with “The Jinkx & DeLa Holiday Special” (2020), with an exclusive licensing deal with the streaming giant, Hulu. The film won “Lockdown LOL” at the 2021 Queerties.

“After two long years of postponements, I’m OVER-FREAKING-JOYED to be bringing my new solo show back on the road! And I gotta tell you all: this one’s a doozy,” DeLa said. “I can’t wait to share DeLa’s special day with all of you.”

The show will be presented by LiveNation at The Depot on May 17. VIP tickets are now available at concerts.livenation.com
