Graham Robson May 28, 2024

Emmy Award-winning LGBTQ+ performer Billy Porter is to bring his show the BLACK MONA LISA to the Brighton Dome on 28 October.

Backed by a full band, the Black Mona Lisa takes the audience on a musical journey through Billy’s life story — showcasing tracks from Black Mona Lisa, his latest pop album, while also celebrating his ’90s R&B roots and award-winning turns on Broadway.

Speaking about the show, Billy said: “I’m thrilled to be bringing my fifth and most personal album to tour my second favourite home country. The UK has embraced my passion project with open arms, with me seeing two of my singles, Children and Baby Was A Dancer, soar to the top of BBC Radio Radio 2 pop charts, with the latter reaching #1. I can’t wait to share my love for you all live and in person.

“And just for clarity, my pronouns are: he/him. She/her. They/Them — THAT BITCH! Often imitated. Never duplicated. They are one of one. The only one. The complete definition of… ICONIC. Ladies, gentlemen and those who have yet to make up their minds; I serve you MISS BLACK MONA LISA!”
