James Ross, otherwise known as RuPaul's Drag Race season two winner Tyra Sanchez, is dipping back into drag through the rebranding of King Tyra. This return to drag has been in the works for months and has now culminated into a full North American tour.
Tyra will hit the road with a tour titled Club Tyra, which includes dates from Washington, D.C. to Atlanta, Georgia. Tyra announced the tour with an Instagram post that reads:
"To the fans of Tyra Sanchez, Omg! This journey over the last few weeks has been truly fantastic! I am grateful for everyone who purchased access to Club Tyra and I am so excited to meet all of you! Club Tyra is an ultimate night of glamour dedicated to reintroducing you (the fans) to drag superstar Tyra Sanchez. although I believe King Tyra is fabulous in every way imaginable, I know she is truly misunderstood, so I'm putting Tyra up close, face to face with you (our party guests) to allow you to know Tyra a little better."
The drag performer went on, saying, "Club Tyra is presented by me, James Ross, the creator of Tyra Sanchez and the star of the show! As I transform into Tyra, my team transforms each venue into Club Tyra's pink poppin' experience. We have partnered with the trendiest venues to bring the experience directly to you. In addition, we have cast some of the best in female illusion to enhance your experience for one night of fun! This opportunity would not have been successful without each of you! I want to thank you deeply for all of your support and encouragement! I promise, this is only the beginning. There is so much more to come!"
Tyra concluded: "I am so happy that I get to entertain each of you and I am thrilled to show you the new looks I have been creating for Tyra. For King Tyra is the baddest in the land, it's time we remember why this king wears a crown. From a big heart with big love, James Ross."
Longtime fans of Tyra are excited about this comeback and can't wait to see their favorite queen back on tour. May King Tyra reign supreme!
