Singer and songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen will perform a concert onboard Carnival Cruise Line's Carnival Splendor in February 2018, as part of the Carnival LIVE concert series.
The concert will take place while Carnival Splendor is at sea during a week-long Mexican Riviera cruise that operates roundtrip from Long Beach, California.
Jepsen joins a line-up of Carnival LIVE artists from a selection of musical genres including rock, country, R&B and pop. Previous Carnival LIVE artists include singers Tim McGraw and Carrie Underwood, and comedians Jim Gaffigan and Chris Tucker.
“While I've performed all over the world and on Broadway, I’ve never performed on a cruise ship before and I’ve really looking forward to a night with my fans in what promises to be a unique venue for an incredible night,” said Jepsen.
“We’re delighted to have Carly bring her signature brand of pop music to guests sailing aboard Carnival Splendor,” said Sarah Beth Reno, Carnival’s vice president of entertainment. “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.”
