The 1980 - 81 North American Tour was the first official production of The Rocky Horror Show to play in North America since the show closed on Broadway in 1975. Billed as The "Original" Rocky Horror Show, it used the costume and set design by Sue Blane and Brian Thomson from the earliest productions of the stage show. Kim Milford reprised his role from the Original Roxy Cast as Rocky Horror (A Creation).

Sponsored in part by Schlitz Beer, merchandise sold on the tour included t-shirts, sweatshirts and rolling papers.
