Stars of RuPaul's Drag Race touring the UK in 2018

Latrice Royale

Adore Delano, Courtney Act, Latrice Royale and the Queens Werq The World Tour take to UK stages

After nine seasons of RuPaul's Drag Race and three of All Stars there are so many iconic queens we'd like to sashay across the pond to sing, lip sync, death drop and spill the t on their fellow contestants. Thankfully the UK drag calendar is stacking up. We take a look ahead to the queens performing solo, and as part of mixed bills, in the UK this year.

Alyssa Edwards
You know you're a seriously memorable queen when not one but two contestants choose to impersonate you in snatch game: both Violet Chachki and Aja tried to emulate Alyssa Edwards' iconic facial expressions and tongue pops in their respective seasons. In March the real thing brings her Secret is Out tour to the UK, with nine dates across Scotland, England and Wales. Expect some seriously sickening dance moves and zero back rolls.
Touring Mar

The Twisted Circus
Klub Kids present a selection of RuPaul's Drag Race stars for a night of sickening lip-syncing, dancing and circus performance. Kicking off in London at the end of March the tour stops in Birmingham, Manchester, Cardiff, Newcastle and Glasgow. Queens taking to the stage include Chad Michaels, Milk, Kim Chi, Amanda Lepore, Violet Chachki, and from season 9 Farrah Moan and Shea Coulee.
Touring Mar & Apr

Sharon Needles
Everyone's favourite blood-spewing queen and the winner of season four brings her Battle Axe tour to Newcastle, Birmingham, London, Cardiff, Glasgow and Manchester in April. Battle Axe is Sharon Needles' third full album. You can also catch the spooky queen as part of May Queens Werq The World Tour and October's Heels of Hell tour.
Touring Apr

Adore Delano
She didn't know how to sew or cinch when she started season six but Adore charmed her way to the final three of season six. Haven't already reached the semi finals of the seventh season of American Idol, as Danny Noriega, Adore Delano continues her singing career, performing a soundtrack of raunchy electro pop with a live band.
Touring May

Latrice Royale
She is large and in charge, chunky yet funky. She's Latrice Royale and she's visiting four UK venues in May as part of her Here's To Life tour. A fan favourite from season four and the winner of that season's Miss Congeniality Latrice brings fierceness to Leeds, Birmingham, Aberdeen and Falkirk. If those locations don't suit she's part of the both the Queens Werq The World Tour and Heels of Hell.

Touring the UK August 20 - 28

RuPaul's Drag Race: Werq The World Tour 2018

Courtney Act
Originally from Australia Courtney Act has been keeping UK fans happy of late with a show at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe, winning Celebrity Big Brother 2018 [https://www.list.co.uk/article/98593-how-courtney-act-in-the-celebrity-big-brother-house-is-shifting-the-public-mindset-on-gender-and-sexuality/] and a short post-CBB tour. If you want more of the talented singer, who made the top three in season six of Drag Race then she's bringing her new tour, Under the Covers, to the UK in June, with dates in Glasgow, Manchester, Birmingham and London. Courtney will also perform in Coventry in late August.

Bianca Del Rio
Comedy queen and winner of season six Bianca Del Rio brings her razor tongued wit back to the UK for a tour of theatres this July. Known for her elaborate eye make-up and lethal putdowns (Not today, Satan) Bianca Del Rio performs stand-up across ten dates in the UK with her new show Blame it on Bianca Del Rio. Tickets have been on sale since last September, so don't dither.

Heels of Hell
Last year's Heels of Hell tour sold out so they're bringing it back for 2018. Sharon Needles is on board once again, it is a Halloween tour after all. Joining her are Alaska Thunderfuck, Jinkx Monsoon, Willam, Latrice Royale, Ivy Winters (bet you read it in RuPaul's voice) and Aja. The tour stops in Newcastle, Birmingham, London, Manchester and Glasgow.

Who to look out for?
There's a richness of queens appearing across the UK but we want more. On the list of our 'queens to see' are; Peppermint, named the 'lip sync assassin' in season nine of RuPaul's Drag Race; Bob the Drag Queen, winner of season nine who will hopefully be walking purse-first into a UK club sometimes soon; and Trixie Mattel, with a successful country music album behind her she's been tipped as the frontrunner of All Stars 3.
