The Masked Singer reveals Austin date as part of epic national tour
The Live Music Capital of the World will soon play host to a touring version of America’s favorite song-and-dance reality show.
The Masked Singer, the Fox series guessing-game competition that features costumed celebrities belting out their best (and sometimes worst) renditions of popular songs, will take to the Bass Concert Hall stage in Austin on July 13, 2022 as part of a national tour.
Tickets for the Austin show go on sale to the public Wednesday, November 3 at 7 pm at texasperformingarts.org. VIP packages are available now through VIPNation.com and include meet-and-greet opportunities with the cast, exclusive merch, and photo opportunities.
Fans of the TV show can expect much of the same zaniness during the live performance, which will include some recognizable characters from the TV series brought to life onstage alongside “surprise celebrity guests,” according to a release.
Celebrity guest hosts from the TV show, who will be announced closer to performance dates, will join one “local celebrity” at every show, with that VIP performing in a top-secret disguise. (And considering Austin has no shortage of talented professional singers, we’re expecting a spectacular showing!)
The Austin audience will then try to decipher clues to guess the local celebrity’s identity until the he or she is unmasked at the end of the night’s festivities, with producers promising “an incredible production of song, dance, and craziness that only The Masked Singer could deliver.”
The tour is presented by Right Angle Entertainment — which has made a killing touring with live versions of popular TV series, including Price is Right Live — and producers Guy Phillips and Mark Swanhart, the minds behind Dancing with the Stars: Live!, The Bachelor Live on Stage, and the Simone Biles-led Gold Over America Tour, which canceled its Austin engagement this fall.
With the following The Masked Singer showhas amassed (it’s currently the No. 1 primetime series, averaging 7.9 million viewers across multiple platforms), it was likely only a matter of time before these producers took the show on the road.
The Masked Singer national tour kicks off in St. Louis on May 28, 2022. In addition to the Austin engagement on July 13, the tour will also make Texas stops in San Antonio on July 12, Sugar Land on July 14, and Grand Prairie on July 15.
