Drag Race winner Raja has issued a statement to fans confirming that her highly anticipated ‘EYE-CONIC Tour’ will not be going ahead as planned.

The star was due to visit a number of cities in the United States, with the tour scheduled to begin on 7 July and end on 27 August.

However, on 2 March, Raja posted a heartfelt message to fans confirming that the tour has been cancelled.

“This past year, following All Winners, has been unlike anything I could have expected,” they explained. “It’s brought so many amazing opportunities + time with you all. It has kept me traveling around, creating content, performing…and with all these things happening, I haven’t been able to dedicate the time to building a tour of this scale. You guys deserve the best and I don’t want to put anything out into the world I don’t feel amazing about.”

Raja added that although “this version” of the tour won’t go ahead, she can now focus her energy on being “intentional about gigs across the country” so she can embrace her creativity and share something she is ultimately happy with.

“I’m so grateful for all the love, understanding, and support you continue to show me,” she continued. “I feel so lucky to have the most amazing fans who allow me to focus on creating work I’m proud of.”

It was also confirmed that those who purchased tickets will be refunded in full imminently.

Raja recently competed in the Drag Race franchise’s first season made up entirely of former winners, All Stars 7.

The legendary season saw eight former winners return to battle it out for the Queen of All Queens title, which was eventually won by season five victor Jinkx Monsoon.

After winning two challenges and receiving special mentions from the judges after each critique in almost every episode, Raja was declared the Queen of She Done Already Done Had Herses following a fierce lip-sync tournament.
