Carly Rae Jepsen released her new album E·MO·TION on Aug. 21, earning a host of positive reviews from such outlets as Rolling Stone, Stereogum, People, NPR, and TIME magazine, which deemed E·MO·TION, "the current frontrunner for pop album of the year." The first single released from the album, "I Really Like You," became a global Top 40 hit, while the video is Vevo Certified with more than 100 million views. Jepsen's new single "Run Away with Me" is out now.
E·MO·TION is the follow-up to Jepsen's U.S. debut album Kiss, which featured her break-out hit "Call Me Maybe." The single climbed to No. 1 on the iTunes Singles charts in more than 47 countries and has sold more than 18 million singles worldwide to date. It earned Jepsen 2012 GRAMMY nominations for Best Pop Solo Performance and Song of the Year. Kiss also spawned the follow-up hit "Good Time," a duet with Owl City, which has been certified double-platinum. Jepsen spent much of 2014 starring in the Broadway production of Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella, earning rave reviews. Carly will also star as "Frenchy" in GREASE: LIVE airing Sunday, January 31 on FOX.
Jepsen will perform in the Venetian Theatre at 8 p.m. on Dec. 30 and Jan. 2. On New Year's Eve, she will perform at 10 p.m.

At midnight on New Year's Eve, the entire Las Vegas Strip gets into the party with approximately 80,000 pyrotechnic shells deployed from 11 casino rooftops – including The Venetian.
