LUCHA VAVOOM--the acclaimed and mind-blowing Mexican masked wrestling/burlesque/comedy troupe--will go Down Under for the first time in 2013.
They’ll amp things up to new levels of insanity with must-be-seen-to-be-believed shows at BIG DAY OUT 2013, the acclaimed Australian touring festival which will feature a wide array of acts including Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Killers, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Vampire Weekend and Band of Horses. The dates encompass five shows throughout Australia from January 18 to January 28 (see below).
Lucha VaVOOM is non-stop, action-packed surrealism where Mexican masked wrestlers perform breathtaking acrobatic feats in a fast-paced, fun-filled, character-driven style. Known for their far-out flamboyance, its quick, exhibition-style, one-fall Lucha Libre matches designed for maximum enjoyment and action.
Lucha VaVOOM recently celebrated their 10th anniversary with two packed shows at the Mayan Theater in their Los Angeles hometown. They have regularly sold out 1,000-seat venues across the globe (Amsterdam, Calgary, Toronto and New York, among many other cities) and taken the stage alongside the likes of legends such as Jon Stewart and Dave Chappelle, as well as appearances on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “Attack of the Show,” “Carson Daly” and “A Current Affair.” Drawing inspiration from the world of ‘60s Mexican Lucha Cinema, the troupe has been considered one of the most outrageous shows on earth.
The ultimate distraction, Lucha VaVOOM 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. Their insane antics have Jack Black proclaiming “Lucha VaVOOM is the shit!” and it’s easy to see why.
The Los Angeles Times said the Lucha VaVOOM show “has the pacing of a prison break” (3/10/12) and BIG DAY OUT 2013 fans are set for something spectacular. Here’s what the press have had to say:
