Kesha’s new album ‘Gag Order’ (Kemosabe Records/RCA Records), recently dropped to universal acclaim, and the GRAMMY-nominated popstar is now set to bring it on the road this October & November with The Gag Order Tour. The 20-date tour will feature support from Jake Wesley Rogers, and will take Kesha across the US, playing a diverse collection from her discography including past hits and beloved new faves off ‘Gag Order’. Full tour dates below.

Presales start Wed, May 31 @ 10am local, with tickets on sale Fri, June 2 @ 10am local at KeshaOfficial.com/tour.

Produced by Rick Rubin & with Kesha as executive producer, ‘Gag Order’ was described by Pitchfork as “a spare and eccentric album about coming to terms with ambivalence”, with Rolling Stone calling it “her most daring music yet”, and NPR stating that “I was just so struck about the way that this album defies all convention.”

Gag Order’ feels like an emotional exorcism, unearthing and facing the darkness in oneself, brought to life with experimental, otherworldly production and lyrical vulnerability unlike anything the artist has written before. On ‘Gag Order’, Kesha confronts her own reflection and finds empowerment in her own voice, with beautiful, heart-aching results. 

In a recent album manifesto (read HERE via Nylon),  Kesha shared that “Without the darkness there is no light. So I let my darkness have the light. I can’t fight the truth. Life is difficult and painful. It is for everyone,” adding that “An artist doesn’t exist to make others happy. I believe an artist gives voice, motion, color to the emotions we all have. The good emotions, and the unmanageably fucking miserable ones.”

Kesha has sold more than 14 million total album equivalents worldwide, has approximately 6.9 billion audio streams and 1.7 billion video streams worldwide, and has had 9 Top 10 hits on The Billboard Hot 100, including four # 1 singles at Top 40 Radio - "TiK ToK," "Your Love Is My Drug," "Die Young," and "Timber."
