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!!!!

Madame Royale will you take the scousers to church?! – ANNOUNCEMENT

Hey guys!!! Welcome back to MikeyMix!! As a few of you may recall, a couple of weeks ago I had the privilege of attending the Aja and Farrah Moan gig that was held at the ‘KLUBLAND’ Bar in Blackpool, UK.

Since I attended this gig (and had an excellent time, it’s safe to say the girls definitely delivered!), the kind people over at ‘KLUBKIDS UK’ (a company which specialises in bringing the drag artists of America to the UK) have invited me to the Latrice Royale gig at ‘Heaven Nightclub’, for those unaware ‘Heaven’ is an immensely popular nightclub in my hometown of Liverpool.

For those who aren’t fans of drag race; Latrice Royale, is an all time fan favourite having won over our hearts on season four of the hit show (unfortunately she didn’t win but that didn’t stop her from going on to have an excellent career!) and was invited to compete again in the first season of Drag Race spin-off ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race: All Stars’ in which she and drag race alumni Manila Luzon competed together following the “double-up” twist.

Latrice will be appearing in ‘Heaven Nightclub’ on Sunday August 20 and tickets (whilst still available) can be purchased by visiting the following link: TICKETS HERE

Show Times:

Doors open: 8PM

Show Time: 9PM

Meet & Greet: After conclusion of show

(TIMES ARE CONDITIONAL)

Ticket Prices:

  • STANDARD SHOW ENTRY – £10 (WITH A £1.21 BOOKING FEE)

  • VIP MEET & GREEN (GIVES HOLDERS ENTRY TO THE EVENT AND AN OPPORTUNITY TO MEET LATRICE AFTER THE SHOW) – £35 (WITH A £2.76 BOOKING FEE)

After the show I will upload a vlog of my experience onto my YouTube channel (MikeyMixTV) if you haven’t subscribed already be sure to as this vlog (which will include an interview with Royale herself is not to be missed!!).

The gig is definitely going to be amazing as Latrice Royale is one hell of a performer and knows what the fans want: if I can get her to say the iconic line, “get those nuts away from my face” on camera I will die happy!! Hope to see some of you there, until next time: stay safe, be happy and keep on jammin!
