Our weekly round up of this week's biggest new tours, shows and events.
October 2019 will see eight top-class performances from the world of drag tour across the UK on the Heels Of Hell run.
The live shows will welcome Ru Paul’s Drag Race favourites Sharon Needles, Alaska Thunderf***, Adore Delano, Miz Cracker, Latrice Royale and Kennedy Davenport, as well as Atlanta’s drag supermonster Biqtch Puddin and one top secret star yet to be revealed.
The tour continues the rise of the art of drag in the mainstream, largely led by Ru Paul’s cult TV show, currently airing its eleventh season on Netflix.
All but one of the Heels Of Hell line-up rose to household name status on the talent competition, with Sharon Needles taking home the crown at the end of the fourth season.
All of the seven queens celebrate an illustrious drag career, ranging from music to comedy, and all elements of performance art in-between.
The Heels of Hell tour kicks off in London on 17 October 2019, running through to Manchester on 29 October 2019 before heading to Ireland.
Previous tours have witnessed the likes of fellow Ru Paul’s Drag Race winner Jinkx Monsoon, ever-controversial drag star Willam, and celebrated New York queen Aja entertain the masses.
Presenting a unique Halloween experience, this year will see Adore deliver her rock-inspired songs, Alaska bring of off-kilter humour, and Latrice return following her 2018 hit UK run.
