Carly Rae Jepsen Is Dedicated to Performing in Phoenix This Year

It's time to start crying loud and obnoxious tears of joy, Carly Rae-niacs: Your savior has returned.

It's been a time and a half since her last album, 2015's beloved EMOTION, but now, Carly Rae Jepsen has finally announced that its hotly-anticipated follow up, Dedicated, will arrive on May 17 (sure, there was also 2016's EMOTION Side B and last year's single "Party of One," but you can never have enough Carly).

The Canadian pop singer has also announced an accompanying U.S. tour, and guess what: It's coming to Phoenix. Carly Rae will hit up The Van Buren on Tuesday, August 6. Tickets for the show will go on sale on TicketWeb tomorrow, April 2, at 10 a.m., and given the venue's capacity, we'll make an educated guess that it's going to sell out.

Having emerged on the singing competition Canadian Idol, Jepsen may be the most significant pop music to come from the country since Justin Bieber — no! Avril Lavigne — no. Celine Dion. Although she really only has one major hit — 2012's inescapable "Call Me Maybe" — her timeless take on bubblegum pop has earned her plenty of fans, and she's made a healthy career as what could be called an "alt-pop" star, someone without the platinum sales of a diva like Lady Gaga or Rihanna, but with a fervent following nonetheless. In other words, she doesn't consistently top the charts, but she has enough clout to get Tom Hanks for a video and enough artistic freedom to pretty much do what she wants.
