“We’re going on a tour,” she says. “I’m playing songs you’ve never heard me play before and I may never play again — only a couple of shows.”
Although she didn’t reveal much else, the details slowly started spreading online. Bandsintown, a concert discovery app, lists a slate of U.S. shows that run from July 23 to October 1. The schedule includes stops at the Mad Decent Block Party in Brooklyn (August 7) and Los Angeles (October 1). KeshaRoseSource, a fan site, screencapped what looks like the tour’s name: “Kesha and The Creepies: The F**k The World Tour.”

The new tour follows Kesha’s sexual abuse case against producer Dr. Luke. The legal proceedings placed her career in limbo after Sony refused to terminate Kesha’s recording contract with Dr. Luke’s Kemosabe Records. A New York judge ultimately threw out the case earlier this year on April 6.
Kesha said in an Instagram caption that “xxxclusive fan pre-sale starts today at 1pm CT” and that more details are coming soon. Watch the announcement below.
