Kesha tour will bring the singer back to Atlanta in the fall

BY MELISSA RUGGIERI/AJC Music Scene

Atlanta fans caught a rare Kesha sighting at last year’s Music Midtown festival, but the singer will hit the road this fall for a full-fledged road run.

The “Rainbow Tour” – her first since 2013’s “Warrior Tour” - will kick off Sept. 26 and swing by the Coca-Cola Roxy at 8 p.m. Sept. 29. A fan pre-sale begins at 10 a.m. Aug. 3; fans can get a chance at first access by listening to and sharing tracks from her new album, “Rainbow.” A Citi card pre-sale also launches Aug. 3 – at noon – via www.citiprivatepass.com.

The general on sale takes place at 10 a.m. Aug. 5 at www.livenation.com and www.keshaofficial.com. General admission tickets are $45.50.

Every pair of tickets to the “Rainbow Tour” will come with a physical copy of her new album, which arrives Aug. 11.

During her colorful set at Music Midtown, Kesha played her radio favorites “We R Who We R” and “Your Love is My Drug,” coyly referenced the Dr. Luke lawsuit that stymied her career and told the crowd, “ “What I cannot do is play you my new music, which sucks because I have so much good s*** waiting. Please don’t give up on me yet.”

Last month, Kesha was finally free to release her first new music via RCA and Kemosabe (Dr. Luke’s contract with Sony Music expired in March and he is no longer CEO of Kemosabe) and in early July she released the single, “Praying.”

Fans can get a deeper look/listen to the music of “Rainbow” on Aug. 2 when Kesha performs a private live show at YouTubeSpace LA, which will stream on www.YouTube.com .
