The most recent inductee into RuPaul's Drag Race Hall of Fame is coming to downtown Phoenix, and she won't be lip-syncing for her life.

Instead, RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars winner and co-star of Vice's The Trixie & Katya Show, Trixie Mattel will be performing her original country music.

She's scheduled to perform at The Van Buren on Friday, June 22. The stop is one of 39 shows that make up Mattel's Now With Moving Parts North American tour that kicks off in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on April 20.

The tour is in support of Mattel's second studio album, One Stone. Mattel self-released the album on March 16 and it debuted at number 1 on Billboard's Heatseekers charts.


Mattel has been lauded as a versatile performer and has one of the best careers post-Drag Race. From March 2016 to November 2017, she starred in a YouTube talk show with fellow Drag Race contestant Katya called UnHhhhh. The show was picked up by Viceland and re-branded for their cable program The Trixie & Katya Show.

Presale tickets for Mattel's Van Buren show go on sale at noon local time on Thursday, April 12, via Live Nation's website. Tickets go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. on Friday, April 13. Prices will range from $35 to $99.
