Kesha postpones spring tour dates ahead of surgery: 'I'm heartbroken'
Kesha’s fans in Australia, New Zealand, Taiwan, and Japan will have to wait a bit longer to see the pop star on stage in their country.
After suffering a torn ACL during a recent performance, Kesha announced Tuesday she is following her doctor’s orders and rescheduling several dates on the final leg of her Rainbow Tour, which was set to visit the aforementioned regions between March 25 and April 20.
Variety reports 10 dates in total are being temporarily canceled, though the Byron Bay Bluesfest performance in Australia is reportedly unable to be rescheduled after Kesha fell on stage during a Feb. 9 performance in Dubai. The singer-songwriter’s representatives did not immediately return EW’s request for comment.
“It’s my biggest joy in life to share my music with my fans all over the world, but I have to follow my doctors orders and undergo surgery to repair my torn ACL so I can get ready to give it all on my Summer tour and beyond,” Kesha wrote on Instagram Tuesday, referencing an upcoming joint tour with her “Good Old Days” collaborator titled The Adventures of Kesha and Macklemore.
“Moving these dates is making me sick with sadness, but I tried to will this injury away and unfortunately it didn’t work,” Kesha’s Instagram post continued. “I love you all and I’ll work every single day as hard as i can to recover and get back on stage as soon as possible. I’m so sorry and sending love always.”
The 30-city Adventures tour is set to begin June 6 in Phoenix. and will conclude Aug. 5 in Tampa. Tickets are available now on Kesha’s website. One dollar of every ticket sold will be donated to RAINN (Rape, Abuse, & Incest National Network) at the “Praying” singer’s request, while Macklemore will contribute proceeds to PLUS1 and M&RL Equity Fund, an organization that works for racial and social justice.
