The Suicide Girls might have just been here in back in October, but they’re back here in April with the Blackheart Burlesque tour. We spoke to founder Missy Suicide to find out what we can expect this time around.T

Yellow Scene: Blackheart Burlesque has been touring for a while now – how do you keep it fresh?

Missy Suicide: We incorporate different numbers every tour. Whatever the new pop culture reference is, like there’s a Fifty Shades of Grey number in there. So we just keep it fresh with the music and the routines.

YS: So what are the differences going to be between this show and the last time you were in Denver last year?

MS: There will be different girls from the last tour, and I think this show is 420-themed, so this show’s a little bit more stoner-focussed.

YS: Do you guys get a good reception in Colorado?

MS: Colorado is one of our favorite towns to play. You guys are amazing. There’s always a big turn out, and people are always loud and having fun. You really cheer the girls on. It’s a fun town.

YS: What impact has the choreographer Manwe Sauls-Adison had?

MS: He’s been with us from the beginning of the tour. He’s amazing. He takes whatever crazy ideas I have and brings them to life in the best way possible.

YS: What’s next, after this tour?

MS: This girls will be in Canada at the same time, and then they’re going to do the first ever burlesque tour in Singapore. It’s nerve-wracking, fun and exciting all at the same time. It’s a big responsibility to be the first.

The Suicide Girls play at 8 p.m. on Sunday, April 19 at the Summit Music Hall; 1902 Blake St., Denver; 303-487-0111; $25-$100.
