Kylie Ireland at Bordello This Weekend

LOS ANGELES — Kylie Ireland will be making her burlesque dance debut this Sunday as part of the Devil’s Playground show at Bordello in downtown Los Angeles.

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, the theme of the March show is “Salute to the Irish.” Ireland will be appearing in a set with fetish model and Devil’s Playground mainstay Shelby Jones (aka Belfast).

Ireland makes very few public appearances, so this is a rare opportunity for fans.

“I’ve given up stripping, well, forever, let’s hope,” Ireland said. “But fans still ask me to dance all the time. This is as close as they’re going to get.

“I was a feature dancer for so long that I can do it in my sleep. This is new and exciting for me. It’s a choreographed set that’s much more about the performance. I’m actually a little nervous.”

Despite the change in venue, Ireland doesn’t think fans will be disappointed.

“While this is classic, old-school, bump-and-grind burlesque, I’m still going to end up mostly naked,” Ireland said. “Also, my dance partner is gorgeous, and there are a bunch of other super-hot burlesque chicks on the bill. You’re not going to get that at Spearmint Rhino.”

Also performing are Courtney Cruz, Lux LaCroix, Kitten DeVille and Cinnamon Britches.

The Devil’s Playground “Salute to the Irish” show takes place Sunday at Bordello, 901 E. 1st St., in Los Angeles. The performance starts at 9 p.m. Tickets are $10.
