Her tour will open in Birmingham on 2 May and head to the likes of Cardiff, London and Manchester.

It’ll finish up at Edinburgh’s Queen’s Hall on 11 May and marks the first time she’s brought the new show to the UK and Europe.

It follows up her one-woman West End show, Alyssa, Memoirs of a Queen, which played at the Vaudeville Theatre in June 2021.

The autobiographical extravaganza featured her story about her rise from young gay boy in Mesquite, Texas to global fame alongside iconic costumes and high kicks and splits.

In our review PinkNews said: “The crowd is in the palm of her hands – shouting compliments, calling out shade – and Alyssa knows exactly how to whip them into a frenzy.”

Fans can expect even more from her upcoming show, with performance numbers from the lipsync assassin, hilarious anecdotes and Drag Race gossip, of course.
