Canadian pop star Carly Rae Jepsen, 33, will perform at the New Frontier Theater of the Araneta Center in Quezon City, Metro Manila, Philippines on October 23, 2019. It is part of her “The Dedicated Tour.”
The concert is presented by concert promoter Wilbros Live. Tickets will be on-sale starting August 31, 2019 via TicketNet.com.ph and at all TicketNet outlets in the Philippines.
Fans can expect a night full of hits as Jepsen will be performing her chart-topping songs. Among the songs in her setlist are “Cut to the Feeling”, “Call Me Maybe”, “Party for One”, “I Really Like You”, “Boy Problems”, “Emotion” and “Run Away with Me.”
In 2015, Jepsen released her third studio album titled “E·MO·TION,” which inspired an abundance of memes. This extended the cultural cachet that she earned from the ubiquity of her Grammy-nominated blockbuster hit “Call Me Maybe” from her United States debut album “Kiss.”
“E·MO·TION” had 12 songs. One of them was the platinum single “I Really Like You,” an ’80s-influenced synth-pop classic.
“Call Me Maybe” not only climbed to number 1 on the iTunes Singles charts in over 47 countries, sold over 20 million singles worldwide and was certified Diamond in the U.S. It was also referenced by everyone from politician Colin Powell to “Sesame Street” character Cookie Monster.
On May 17, 2019, Jepsen released her fourth studio album “Dedicated,” which retains the joyful, hook-filled feeling of its predecessor. But her newest album has a more ’70s-inspired feel at times although it defies categorization as a whole and at one point, she was sure she was making a disco opus.
“The title was going to be ‘Disco Sweat,’” Jepsen shared. “I really bought into it.”
But Jepsen had a change of heart thanks to her travels over the past two years. She went to a beach in Nicaragua where she surfed and stayed in a cabana-like casita.
Jepsen also had writing trips to the Swedish countryside. She shared, “It was spring and there were fields of flowers, homemade breads, and kittens running everywhere.”
The Canadian singer-songwriter also had solo vacation in Italy. She is the kind of artist who involves self-reflection in the process of creating.
“I had so many songs,” Jepsen said. “I needed some space to walk around, reflect, eat pasta, and get to know myself a bit.”
