Hot on the stiletto heels of two sold-out Cinco de Mayo shows last week (5/5, 5/6) where the great Morrissey was in attendance, the unstoppable force known as LUCHA VaVOOM are now gearing up to deliver a very special show: “Glam Slam!–Battle For The Belt” Thursday, June 2 at the The Mayan in downtown Los Angeles (1038 S. Hill St.). Tickets for this 21+ event and seated show are on sale now at $40.00-$75.00. Doors are at 7PM and the show is at 8 PM. For tickets and more information, visit:luchavavoom.com.
LUCHA VaVOOM is one of Los Angeles’ most celebrated variety shows since 2002 where mind-blowing Mexican masked wrestling, burlesque and comedy gloriously collide, with the “pacing of a prison break” (Los Angeles Times, 2012). It’s LUCHA VaVOOM‘s first-ever championship title, with all the LUCHA VaVOOM faves competing for gold. The night will be also marked by a Glam Superstars tribute to David Bowie, Prince and other Glam Greats.
“We both come from rock n’ roll backgrounds, and are excited to present our tribute to David Bowie and Prince in a very Lucha VaVOOM, celebratory fashion,” say Liz Fairbairn and Rita D’Albert, the co-founders of LUCHA VaVOOM. “We want to bring these amazing artists to life through our incredible performers and celebrate the pageantry and energy that is rock n’ roll at its finest.”
Here’s some of what to expect and revel in:
–MARAWA THE AMAZING: 5 Guinness World Records and counting (the “Hoola Hoop Master” holds the world record for 200 hoops at once)

“There’s no show that’s funnier, sillier or more entertaining than this one.”

“The over-the-top-wrestling-orgy of sexy ladies, masked men, and overall debauchery known as Lucha VaVOOM has long been a you’ve-either-seen-it-or-what-the-F-is-wrong-with-you proposition.”
“…no one that puts on a better lucha libre show than the folks at Lucha VaVOOM. Far wackier and wilder than most professional wrestling…Lucha VaVOOM lets its freak flag fly…”

About Lucha VaVOOM:
Founded in Los Angeles in 2002 by Rita D’Albert and Liz Fairbairn, LUCHA VaVOOM–the acclaimed and mind-blowing Mexican masked wrestling/burlesque/comedy ensemble voted Los Angeles’ “Best Burlesque Show” by LA Weekly for 2012 and 2013–is good vs. evil played out in quick, exhibition-style, one-fall Lucha Libre matches for maximum enjoyment and action. Arguably more rock than rock and more punk than punk, LUCHAVaVOOM has created a Los Angeles tradition: from the low-rider car parade escorting the performers as the crowd enters the iconic Mayan Theater, to the local luminaries they attract (Drew Carey and Jack Black have sat in), to burlesque (which was revived right here in Los Angeles), to Lucha Libre, where masked heroic wrestlers, in character-driven style, flip, fly and amaze. It all comes together to make one fun, surreal, glam-bam spectacle of raucous entertainment. You could say it’s a wrestling show for people that don’t like wrestling (and those that do). The Los Angeles Times said, “Far-out flamboyance always prevails at Lucha VaVOOM, a spectacle of Mexican freestyle wrestling with an L.A. twist (7/09/06).”
At LUCHA VaVOOM, they like a little sexo with their violencia. In between matches, the finest handpicked burlesque acts from around the world wow the crowds with their unique striptease skills, including raucous aerial acts, pogo-stick peelers and hula-hoop hotties. The Los Angeles-based performance troupe has regularly sold out 1,000-seat venues across the globe (Amsterdam, Calgary, Toronto, San Francisco, New York, Chicago, Seattle, Portland and Philadelphia, among many other cities), performed at Fuji Rock Festival in Japan and Big Day Out Festival in Australia since its birth in 2002 and call Los Angeles’ Mayan Theater–an elaborately appointed, 1927-built former motion-picture palace–home when not on the road.
