AS SEEN ON TV: Two of the country’s biggest drag powerhouses are headed to Newcastle

Art Simone and Etcetera Etcetera are headed to Newcastle as part of their upcoming national tour AS SEEN ON TV!

Simone and Etcetera, who both appeared on RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under earlier this year, will not only perform a live show at the Playhouse next year, the duo will also be conducting an intimate pre-show Drag 101 workshop.

“Drag is for everyone,” Etcetera Etcetera said.

“There’s nothing that excites me more than travelling around the country spreading the joy of self-expression. I’m so excited to tour with my sister Art Simone and give Australia a real look inside our minds! Let’s hope they like what they find!”

Presented by NYX Professional Makeup, the workshop will give people an opportunity to watch the pair transform from drab to fab while sharing their top-secret tips and tricks.

Workshop attendees will walk away with a free gift bag from NYX Professional Makeup and all the know-how to bring their inner queens to life.

“Makeup was the gateway into a world of drag and self-expression,” Art Simone said.

“It was a perfect mix of escapism and self-exploration and was key to me forming my sense of identity. It will be an absolute joy to share over 10 years of industry experience with attendees as they get the rare opportunity to peek behind the curtain, in an informal and informative environment.”

Art Simone and Etcetera Etcetera hit Newcastle on 15 June 2022. Tickets are on sale now and spots for the workshop are strictly limited. Visit for more info.
