Trixie Mattel heads to the UK and Ireland for her ‘Skinny Legend’ tour

Oh, honey. Trixie Mattel is on her way to the UK and Ireland.

RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 3 winner Trixie Mattel returns to the UK this month to kickstart the Skinny Legend tour, her largest ever live dates.

One of the most beloved Drag Race queens ever, Trixie – the alter ego of Brian Michael Firkus – amassed a huge fan base after starring on the show’s seventh season, before returning to snatch the crown and win a place in the Drag Race Hall of Fame on All Stars 3.

The multi-talented drag queen, who can turn her hand to singing, acting and comedy, has also enjoyed success with her two country folk albums, 2017’s Two Birds and One Stone, which was released last year. One Stone immediately shot to #1 on the iTunes album chart on release and peaked at #1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers album chart.

She also started the web series ‘UNHhhh’ with her season seven sister Katya, which was picked up by Viceland and eventually became The Trixie & Katya Show.

Skinny Legend is Trixie Mattel’s brand new one-woman show, combining music and comedy in a way that only Trixie could hot glue together – guitar picking, razor-sharp reads, and hair teased to the sky, and will see the iconic queen play her biggest venues yet, including London’s O2 Academy Brixton.
