Watch the cast of Kinky Boots in rehearsal

The West End cast perform 'Land Of Lola' ahead of the show's debut UK tour.

With Kinky Boots set to close in the West End on the 12 January 2019, the show is currently gearing up for its debut UK tour which starts on the 16 October.

The musical will visit Wolverhampton, Manchester, Edinburgh, Llandudno, Bristol, Birmingham, Sunderland, Cardiff before concluding in Milton Keynes on 19 November 2019.

The tour follows a hugely acclaimed run in London’s West End, having won every major Best Musical award, including the coveted Olivier Award in 2016.

Based on the 2005 film of the same name, the musical production includes songs written by Grammy and Tony Award winning star Cyndi Lauper. The story centres around Charlie Price and his chance meeting with drag queen Lola.

In the rehearsal video, Simon-Anthony Rhoden (Lola) is joined by his Angels as they run through the rousing Land Of Lola, much to the delight of the cast and creative team on hand.

Rhoden rounds off the West End run, with the role of Lola played by Callum Francis.
