We can agree 2020 has been a year we are more than happy to forget, well let us celebrate the end of the year with an extravaganza of a lineup. Producer Entertainment Group is partnering with virtual streaming platform concert venue sessions for an 11-hour show to keep us all entertained. The event PEG presents New Years Queens: Goodbye 2020! The show is to be hosted by Drag icons and fan favorites Alaska, Katya, Trixie Mattel, Bob The Drag Queen, Miz Cracker, and Peppermint.
The line up features a stellar cast of 16 superstars such as Bebe Zahara Benet, Boulet Brothers, Divina De Campo, Ginger Minj, Jinx Monsoon, Jujubee, Sharon Needles, Manila Luzon, BenDelaCreme, and Trinity The Tuck.
The live countdown will be happening across three cities, London, New York, and Los Angeles. “We are excited to be partnering with Sessions and getting so many of our artists together for an unforgettable New Years’ Eve party!”David Charpentier Founder and Talent Manager, Producer Entertainment Group explains.
Hosting the festivities will be drag royalty Alaska and Bob The Drag Queen: Alaska stating “I am honored to have the chance to ring in the new year, not once, but multiple times. Bob the Drag Queen and I shall be hosting the festivities, and I look forward to counting down with glee as each time zone bids adieu to the garbage pile that has been 2020. May 2021 bring us peace, unity, and restaurants that are indoors.”
Drag has without a doubt had to adapt to this year’s COVID pandemic forcing live events to come to a halt in order to stay at home. However, a surge in digital drag saw fans hunger for shows satisfied, with the cast ready to say goodbye to 2020 in big style.
Peppermint continued: “2020 has been a rough year, to say the least, especially considering many performers and drag entertainers all over the world have been out of work. It’s an honor to host this event with such remarkable talent. I find it poetic that we are all able to finally turn the page on 2020 as we count down together for this fabulous New Year’s extravaganza.” Divina De Campo added: “Wave goodbye 2020 you absolute stinker and hello 2021 you dreamboat of loveliness with me, the DDC.”
Expect the unexpected with claims Miz Cracker: “The only thing better than hosting a New Year’s Eve party to end this wild year is hosting with Peppermint, an icon who has shaped my drag since day one. Not to give anything away, but we’re already scheming to make this an unforgettable evening!”
And of course the witty sarcasm and fun from Trixie and Bob: “Let’s basically celebrate the end of 2020. I will be wearing a nice dress and trying to put blush on Bob.” Bob the Drag Queen: “Ringing in the New Year surrounded by the funniest queer people I know? Sign me up!”
