Rolling Stone called one of Kesha’s most recent live performances in Nashville “one of the most positively uplifting, inclusive concert experiences available in 2017.”
Backed by a live band and with her known swagger and playful snarl, Kesha will perform a set of her past global hits, her HOT current single “Praying,” and other songs from ‘Rainbow’ (Kemosabe Records/RCA Records), “an artistic feat” (Entertainment Weekly) for the singer, which debuted at No. 1 on The Billboard 200 and topped charts in nearly 30 markets worldwide.
