Kesha and Macklemore team for tour that hits Atlanta this summer


Kesha and Macklemore have teamed for a tour that will play the newly renamed Cellairis Amphitheatre at Lakewood on Aug. 2.

Tickets for the show will go on sale at noon Dec. 15 via www.livenation.com. A Citi card presale will run from noon Dec. 13 to 10 p.m. Dec. 14 through Citi’s Private Pass program (www.citiprivatepass.com).

The duo, who perform on the song “Good Old Days” on Macklemore’s latest album, “Gemini,” will embark on a nine-week, 30-market jaunt together.

For the duration of the tour, $1 from each ticket sold will be donated to causes special to Kesha (RAINN) and Macklemore (M Plus 1).

Kesha played Atlanta in September with a potent show at the Coca-Cola Roxy.
