Seeing Jepsen live is a truly jubilant experience. Ever since selling out the venue in 2019 for one of the last truly great nights in The Olden Times, Jepsen has seemed at home on the Forum stage again.

The set-up was fittingly reminiscent of a 1970s disco variety show, with a billowing iridescent backdrop curtain, stairways to strut, and a halo of playful lights that served to complement Jepsen’s bright and enthusiastic performance.

For all the upbeat brilliance, lyrical majesty, and bright vocals, there was a subtle restraint and warmth in Jepsen’s minimal choreography and interactions with her band. And as they reached out affectionately to the audience, the mutual, palpable adoration was reflected right on their sequined mini dress. Carly Rae Jepsen performs in Melbourne
