Hometown (by way of Mission BC) heroine Carly Rae Jepsen kicks off her Canadian tour in Vancouver with shows at the Commodore Ballroom Aug. 28 & 29.

The pop singer behind the multiplatinum smash “Call Me Maybe” is touring behind her latest album, Dedicated. Tickets to the shows go on sale to the general public Friday, May 30.

Find out more below.

Jepsen has been nominated for Grammy and Juno awards as well as for Canada’s equivalent of the UK’s Mercury Prize, the Polaris Prize.

Dedicated, Jepsen’s fourth album, includes the singles “Party For One”, “Now That I Found You”, “Julien” and “Too Much”. Jepsen worked with a crew of trusted songwriters and producers on the project.

In a review of Jepsen’s first London show in four years, posted at standardco.co.uk,  posted on May 30, Elizabeth Aubrey wrote that the fans loved the hits but “it was moments from her latest album that truly shone. The fun ‘Party For One’ felt like ‘Call Me Maybe’’s grown-up cousin, as did the Cyndi Lauper-like ‘Want You In My Room.’ Underneath [London 800-capacity venue) XOYO’s giant disco ball, Jepsen managed to flit easily between moments of pop-theatrics on the album’s more mature offerings to upbeat rave, as on the energetic ‘Now That I Found You.’ More songs from Dedicated would have been welcome.”

Dedicated follows 2015’s E*MO*TION, which earned the B.C.-raised singer (and former Canadian Idol contestant) rave reviews from both music and mainstream publications, including TIME, Entertainment Weekly, Pitchfork, People, Stereogum, Vulture, Complex, and Noisey. The album featured the platinum-selling single “I Really Like You.” Likewise, music publications are falling over themselves praising the new record: “As with all great pop, Jepsen’s songs are easy to enjoy. They’re also worthy of that thing she can’t help but keep singing about: obsession,” writes Spencer Kornhaber at theatlantic.com.

One year later Jepsen released E*MO*TION Side B as a gift to her fans and saw it immediately rise to the iTunes Top 10. E*MO*TION followed the release of Jepsen’s U.S. debut album Kiss, which included the #1 hit “Call Me Maybe.”

Presale for tickets to Jepsen’s hometown shows are on now. General on sale begins Friday, May 31, 2019 at 10 a.m. local times.
