Carly Rae Jepsen has become a cause célèbre among indie listeners after her career as an A-list pop star never really took off. Still, she’ll get another taste of the pop life early next year when she opens a string of dates on Katy Perry‘s “Witness: The Tour,” which is, as advertised, her tour in support of her not-very-good recent album Witness.

Jepsen will join Perry for 11 dates, starting January 5 in New Orleans and ending February 5 in Vancouver. In between, they will hit cities in the American south, northwest, and in Canada. Those shows will be preceded by ones opened by Purity Ring, the synth-pop duo that produced two songs on Witness. They’ll be with Perry for 19 shows, starting with three in Los Angeles beginning on November 7 and ending in Miami on December 20. The rest of the shows will be opened by Noah Cyrus.
