The show consists of extravagant performances by Drag Race favourites Detox, Kennedy Davenport, Kim Chi, Latrice Royale, Sharon Needles, Valentina and Violet Chachki.

If you can't make it to the Birmingham date then don't panic, as your favourite queens will be returning to the UK throughout December for the Christmas Queens 2018 tour.

The Christmas Queens tour will arrive in the UK on Nov. 29 at the Symphony Hall in Birmingham before continuing to Manchester, Sunderland, Liverpool, Brighton, London, Bristol, Glasgow, and Belfast.

The tickets range between £42 to £133, and you can purchase them on the Christmas Queens tour website.

According to the site, during shows, you can also enjoy 10 percent off all drinks, and buy two cocktails for just £8 during the pre-show happy hour.

Drag Race fans will also be happy to hear that Bianca Del Rio is set to make history after announcing tour dates including a show at the London SSE Wembley 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.

"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!"

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.
