My name is Alyssa Edwards…and I need a- I need a- I need a get all up in this Blackpool gig!

Hey readers and welcome back to MikeyMix! As you know I am quite the fan of hit reality competition show: ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ and I have had the honour of seeing one of my season 9 favourites (Aja) blow-up a small stage…

I have once again been in touch with new and upcoming, drag queen specialist, events promoter team ‘Connor Matthew Productions’ and it’s safe to say they: “have not come to play, they’ve came to SLAY!!!” (to loosely quote Shea Couleé).

As the title of this blog post suggests: the team over at ‘Connor Matthew Productions’ have booked the sensational, exceptional, mega talented tongue pop and lip sync extraordinaire: MISS ALYSSA EDWARDS!!

Safe to say: I am GAGGING!!

For those readers who don’t watch ‘Drag Race’: Alyssa Edwards shot to fame in season 5 of the hit show (many would argue this is one of the best seasons of the show as it really set the bar for future seasons) and finished 6th after losing out to a lip sync battle with her (at the time) rival, Coco Montrese.

Alyssa quickly became a loved fan favourite and so was invited back to compete on the second series of ‘Drag Race’ spin-off: ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race: All Stars’ in which she finished 5th place…BUT….she did give us one of the most memorable lip sync performances in ‘Drag Race’ herstory!!!!

COME ON BLACKPOOL LET’S GET SICKENING!!…..(& life update!!)

Hello everyone…welcome back to MikeyMix!! Hope you’re all well and haven’t missed me too much (I know I said I’d be blogging a lot more now that I’m off university for summer and I apologise for not keeping up with my end of the promise)!

For today’s post I will be catching up with you all and then announcing an event I have very kindly been granted access to attend!

So, as you all know I’ve been doing a lot on my YouTube channel (MikeyMixTV linked here) and recently I achieved my first subscriber milestone: although hitting 50 subscribers seem’s like nothing to most people to me I’m really proud because it is hard trying to get noticed on YouTube when you live so far away from London and have other commitments in life (university, general life and of course part time work).

I’ve also started live streaming on YouNow (follow me @MikeyMixTV!) and I honestly love it! I don’t know why people would enjoy just watching me chat to my phone whilst sitting on the couch but weirdly people really seem to like it, me and my personality!

Now on to the announcement: if you don’t recognise the quote briefly referenced within the title of the post it’s from a little show entitled: RuPaul’s Drag Race. For those unaware the show is reality television competition in which female impersonators compete against each other in order to win a cash prize of $100,000 and the title of “America’s Next Drag Superstar” (honestly I think the easiest way to describe the show would be to say: “It’s like America’s Next Top Model meets Project Runway meets Lip Sync Battle but with drag queens”).

The show has recently completed its 9th season and since it’s launch in 2009 the show has went on to become quite a hit and has developed a devote cult following because of this a number of contestants have reached great levels of fame and acclaim.

Two fan favourites from this season (whom unfortunately didn’t win), Farrah Moan (left) and Aja (right) will be visiting ‘KLUBLAND’ (a bar in Blackpool, Lancashire, UK) on July 9. Fans of the show will have the opportunity to purchase tickets to either see the girls perform, those wanting to meet the girls and have a professional photograph taken to commemorate the occasion are also welcome to purchase a “Meet & Greet” ticket.

The event will be hosted by two UK based entertainers, both of whom have quite stellar careers!: Silver Summers (best known for her appearances in television series ‘Drag Queens of London’) and The Vivienne (RuPaul’s Drag Race UK Ambassador).

Thanks to the kind people over at “Connor Matthew Productions” (organisers of the event) I’ll be attending the event along with 3 of my friends. I’m hoping to make a vlog of the event (which will be uploaded directly to my YouTube channel shortly after the event) and will be conducting several live streams throughout the night.

Tickets for the event are still available and can be purchased here

Ticket Prices:

Standard Entry [show only]: £20 (and a £1.83 booking fee)

Meet and Greet [includes show, meeting with the girls and professional photo]: £30 (and a £2.45 booking fee)

(PLEASE NOTE: Tickets are subject to availability)
