Carly Rae Jepsen To Perform Concert As Part Of Carnival Cruises Live Concert Series

Singer Carly Rae Jepsen will perform at the Carnival Splendor in February 2018, as part of the Carnival LIVE Concert Series. The concert marks the first time the cruise line is collaborating with Universal Music Group and Brands (UMGB) and Universal Music Group.

While the concert is a departure from previous Carnival LIVE performances in that it is free and open to all guests sailing on Carnival Splendor's February 17, 2018, seven-day voyage, it continues the line's mission of bringing the best in live entertainment to the seas and providing guests an opportunity to enjoy captivating performances by top artists in a memorable setting. 

The concert will take place on Carnival Splendor's Lido Deck February 18 while the ship is at sea during a week-long Mexican Riviera cruise that operates round-trip from Long Beach, Calif. The voyage features a day-long call at Puerto Vallarta and two days at Cabo San Lucas. 

Jepsen is best known for her breakout hit, "Call Me Maybe" which climbed to #1 on the iTunes Singles charts in more than 47 countries and earned her Grammy Award nominations for Best Pop Solo Performance and Song of the Year.  She also appeared in the Broadway production of "Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella," starred on FOX's "Grease: Live" on TV, voiced Odette in the animated film "LEAP!" and released her "E·MO·TION" album. 

"While I've performed all over the world and on Broadway, I've never performed on a cruise ship before and I'm really looking forward to a night with my fans in what promises to be a unique venue for an incredible night," Jepsen said. 

"We're delighted to have Carly bring her signature brand of pop music to guests sailing aboard Carnival Splendor," said Carnival's vice president of entertainment, Sarah Beth Reno. "A free open-air concert on Lido Deck is an exciting new twist for Carnival LIVE and we can't wait for our guests to experience this one-of-a-kind entertainment concept in an entirely new setting," she added.
