Burlesque sensation Dita Von Teese is coming to the UK next year with her latest tour, Glamonatrix. And the all-new revue includes a date in Manchester.
The Glamonatrix tour follows Dita’s The Art of the Teese, which is the most successful burlesque tour of all time, playing to sold out theatres in cities across the United States, Canada, Europe, and Australia.
Far from being a typical burlesque show, Dita aims to elevate and modernize the classic 1940s variety show, with both male and female forms glorified in a body-positive way that inspires and uplifts.
Dita’s self-produced tours are the gold standard of the modern burlesque revival, with devoted fans that include A-list celebrities.

Audiences at the new Glamonatrix tour can expect four all-new acts, each one more lavish than the last.
Smothered in Swarovski crystal, Dita will reinvent the classic burlesque ‘surprise cake’ routine with a massive bejewelled cake. In another new act, the glamorous burlesque queen will titillate as a big cat tamer in an erotic twist on vintage circus chic, wielding a crystallized whip.
Fans can also look forward to a thrilling update of her famous martini glass performed with an ensemble cast.
The new show includes costumes created by famed corset maker Mister Pearl, British designer Jenny Packham, French couturier Alexis Mabille, burlesque icon Catherine D’Lish, Brooke Brothers and more.
Shoe aficionados will delight in the extraordinary bespoke footwear by Christian Louboutin.
“With the success of my last tour of Europe, I came home more inspired than ever and got straight into building new acts,” said Dita.
“I am coming back with an even bigger show than I’ve ever toured with before. Being in these historic theatres with audiences coming dressed to the nines, creates this incredible atmosphere unlike anything I’ve ever seen before.
“For me, burlesque has always been about finding my own power and confidence, embracing sensuality and encouraging others to do the same in their own lives. Glamour is the art of creating mystery and allure, and the new Glamonatrix show embraces all of these qualities.
“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.”
Dita Von Teese’s Glamonatrix tour will come to the Manchester O2 Apollo on 30th April 2020. Tickets go on general sale on Friday 28th June at 10am.
