Adonis has kept its DIY aesthetic since beginning in a small north London warehouse in 2017.

Todrick Hall

Todrick Hall

Sunday 16th June, 7:30pm. Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre.

Step into the world of storytelling sensation Todrick Hall, where talent, advocacy and unapologetic self-expression collide in an unforgettable performance.

From Broadway to the silver screen, Todrick Hall is a household name: with his namesake show on MTV and a staggering nine million followers across social media, he’s a force of nature.

A true polymath, Hall has left his mark as a performer, producer, director, and songwriter, with 17 studio albums to his name and collaborations with icons including Beyoncé, Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande and RuPaul, appearing as a judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race.

His impact extends far beyond entertainment: as a fierce advocate for organisations like Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and Covenant House, Hall uses his platform to uplift marginalised voices and champion causes close to his heart.

A proud member of the LGBTQ+ community, he empowers rebels, free thinkers, and dreamers to embrace their authenticity and own their power.
