Netflix’s ‘I Like To Watch’ live tour kicks off with drag queens The Vivienne and Cheryl Hole

The first pictures of Netflix’s I Like To Watch live event have been revealed as the stage version of the hugely popular video series heads for Hull.

The Sundowners Bar in Margate played host to the first stop on Netflix’s live tour. In front of a sold-out audience, RuPaul’s Drag Race UK winner The Vivienne and Cheryl Hole accompanied by up-and-coming local Queens Delilah Tickles and Amy Redmond, watched and hilariously critiqued Netflix’s He’s All That in their trademark scandalous style.

The fantastically camp tour, which brings the show’s outrageous humour live to LGBTQ+ venues across the country, has hit the road for Bournemouth this week and will visit Nottingham, Glasgow and Swansea, before a final stop at Hull’s Fuel on Wednesday, October 20.

Travelling between cities in a fabulously flamboyant kitsch motorhome fit for our Queens, the venues will be given an I Like To Watch living room-style makeover, immersing attendees and bringing them closer to the action than ever before.

Each night of the tour is hosted by a rotating cast of fan favourites, including RuPaul’s Drag Race UK winner The Vivienne, Tia Kofi, Cheryl Hole and Tayce, who will be partnered with up-and-coming Queens, local to each of the venues.

Fans will get up close and personal with the Queens, watching and critiquing films including Pitch Perfect, Netflix’s Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga and He’s All That in their own unique style.

After a year in which venues and drag artists saw their industry struggle tremendously with work disappearing overnight due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the I Like To Watch tour is an opportunity to celebrate and support LGBTQ+ performers and the venues which act as a vital resource for the community.

The Vivienne said: “I’m so excited to be taking I Like To Watch on the road.

“We’ve all had a shocker over the last year or so, and queens and LGBTQ+ venues have really struggled.

“I’ve made a career working in bars all over the UK, so I know how vital they are to our community. We want to give everybody a camp time, but fingers crossed our tour can help local scenes as they start to find their feet again.”

Though the event at Fuel in Baker Street, Hull, is sold out, the tour organisers have said a small allocation of tickets for each event will be made available once doors open at each venue.

These will be issued on a first come, first served basis so arrive early to avoid disappointment.
