Following last weekend’s canceled show at the Pearl at the Palms, Carly Rae Jepsen has revealed that she will return to Las Vegas for a special concert event at the Thomas & Mack Center on October 3.

Jepsen will headline “UniteLive: The Concert to Rock Out Bullying” to commemorate National Bullying Prevention Month in October. The event is a partnership among the USA Network’s public service initiative Characters Unite, Cox Communications and R&R Partners Foundation’s anti-bullying arm Flip the Script.

The concert is invitation-only and will bring together thousands of Las Vegas students, guardians and teachers to combat bullying and better understand its prevention. Ten winners of a national sweepstakes for middle and high school students also will be flown out to attend the celebration.

“I am looking forward to hosting ‘UniteLive: The Concert to Rock Out Bullying’ and applaud USA Network’s Characters Unite, Flip the Script and Cox Communications for making this important event possible,” Jepsen said in a statement. “Change doesn’t happen overnight, but with programs like this, we can spark a dialogue that will make a real difference in putting a stop to bullying.”
