Singer/songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen headlines North American tour through Nov. 5, and she visited The Anthem for a recent performance on The So Nice Tour.
Katherine Gaines attended the show and took some must-see photographs!
For Carly Rae’s first North American headline tour since 2019, she visited The Anthem on The So Nice Tour on Sept. 29. The tour announcement followed the release of her highly anticipated single “Western Wind,” and the accompanying video, which Jepsen first performed during her set at Coachella.
Co-written by Jepsen and Rostam Batmanglij, “Western Wind” continues a collaboration the two musicians first kicked off with E*MO*TION. A major creative milestone for Jepsen, E*MO*TION inspired in-depth analysis from cultural critics and landed on multiple year-end “best of” lists including Pitchfork, Stereogum, Noisey, NPR, and many more. Released in 2019, her follow-up album Dedicated covered even more musical and emotional ground.

Working with a crew of trusted songwriters and producers (among them John Hill, Jack Antonoff, Captain Cuts, Patrik Berger, and her longtime collaborator Tavish Crowe), Jepsen indulged in more sonic experimentation than she had in the past.
