Bianca Del Rio Is Bringing The Biggest Drag Act Ever To The UK
Drag Race winner Bianca Del Rio is set to make history after announcing tour dates including a show at the London SSE Wembly Arena making it the biggest solo drag show in the UK.
Bianca will be the first ever drag queen to headline 12,500 capacity venue and we just know she will slay the stage.
Speaking about the It's Jester Joke tour, Bianca joked whether Wembley are prepared for all the glitter and wig hair going down the plug hole.
"I've been told I'll be the first drag queen to headline at Wembley Arena," Bianca said. "I'm excited... but also concerned that they aren't prepared for glitter and wig hair clogs in the dressing room sinks!
"I'm incredibly grateful to perform at this beloved British venue before the retirement home comes knocking for me!"
Bianca previously sold out three shows at the Hammersmith Apollo on her last tour.

If you can't get tickets for the show you could have a game of Drag Race monopoly.
Reddit user, 10bayerl, wrote in to the online forum website about how her boyfriend had given her the greatest homemade gift ever - he'd made the pair their very own Drag Monopoly.
Writing on the reddit thread, 10bayerl commented: "My boyfriend and I love board games, especially Monopoly. I also LOVE Ru Paul's Drag Race and got him into it, but had no idea how much he absorbed from the show until I unwrapped this gift on Christmas.
"He handmade everything. He picked all the queens, found all their pictures, put the board together and laminated it, created the box, custom made/ordered all the pieces and money, etc. It took him about two months of staying up after I went to bed each night to make this. I had no idea.
"He also created all the Category Is (aka Chance) and What's the Tee? (aka Community Chest) cards so that the actions are exactly the same as a typical Monopoly game, but they're all iconic quotes from Drag Race (e.g. "Hallelloo!" Get out of Jail Free Card) or faux challenge critiques from judges."
