Dita Von Teese in "Strip Strip Hooray!" headed to Texas

Returning to the city where she first debuted her iconic martini glass show, Dita Von Teese opens her southern tour at the House of Blues New Orleans on July 26th. The 3 city tour continues in Dallas on July 28th, and closes in Houston on July 30th.

The show treats audiences to three of Von Teese's most spectacular performances, including her new Swarovski Martini Glass act which she calls her “ultimate, most decadent, and dazzling martini glass ever!” This beautiful art-deco style cocktail glass is crystalized from top to bottom and features over 250,000 Swarovski crystals.

Von Teese will also perform her “Rhinestone Cowgirl” show which features her dressed in head to toe pink Swarovski crystal, twirling sparkling guns, and strutting around in custom-made Christian Louboutin Cowboy boots complete with spurs a spinnin'. After strip-teasing out of her rhinestone chaps, Dita seductively rides the world's most glamorous authentic mechanical bull. Yee-Haw!!

Joining Dita Von Teese on stage will be “the hardest working middle-aged man in show business,” MC Murray Hill, along with a who‟s who of Burlesque, including Dirty

Martini, Selene Luna, Monsieur Romeo (Host of L'Effleur Des Sens), Lada (from the World Famous Crazy Horse Paris) and Medianoche.

Guests at the Dallas event will also be treated to Dita's new cocktail, the Cointreau MargaDita, a bold and seductive reinvention of the classic Margarita, the #1 selling cocktail in America. Dita Von Teese's tasty new libation is the 2nd drink she has developed as a part of her role as the global ambassador for Cointreau. The Cointreau MargaDita is an homage to Margarita Sames, the bon vivante Dallas socialite who created the original recipe in 1948 while vacationing at her Acapulco cliffside hacienda.

According to Dita Von Teese, "The Cointreau MargaDita is a tantalizing haute-cocktail

(LA Times). Check out for more info.

She brings a distinctly European je ne sais quoi to venues such as Duane Park, Highline Ballroom, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the Hotel Empire.
