There’s no need to “convince yourself” of any “delusion” — drag superstar Jinkx Monsoon is really performing at Carnegie Hall!

On Wednesday (Feb. 7), Carnegie Hall officially announced their 2024-25 concert season. Among the many new shows coming to the legendary New York City venue, one in particular stood out to Drag Race; on Valentine’s Day 2025, the concert hall revealed that Monsoon would be taking to the stage.

While the performer has yet to reveal the title or poster for their show, Monsoon teased in a press release that the one-night-only concert would feature original songs and covers spanning genres like cabaret, show tunes, rock and pop, as well as a few unannounced special guests.

“I truly don’t know what to say — my whole life, I’ve listened to my idols’ voices as they sung on the stage of Carnegie Hall … and now I get to join them in the pantheon?” she said in a statement. “All I know is, I’m thrilled and humbled and READY!”

This won’t be the queen’s first time on an iconic New York stage — in January 2023, Monsoon made her Broadway debut in Chicago, where she played the Cook County Jail’s mother hen Matron “Mama” Morton for a 10-week engagement. Following her run on the Great White Way, the triple-threat performed their character’s signature song, “When You’re Good to Mama,” on the finale episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race season 15.

Subscriptions to the Carnegie Hall’s 2024-2025 season are available now, with individual tickets for Monsoon’s show going on sale August 12. See what Jinkx had to say about her impending Carnegie Hall show below:
