This Spring, Kesha will unleash The High Road Tour on 26 cities across North America. Including stops in NYC, LA, Boston, Chicago, DC, San Francisco and more, The High Road Tour will showcase Kesha at her quintessential best: vibrant, rowdy, heartfelt, and badass.
The tour will include Big Freedia as support and will follow the Jan. 31st release of Kesha’s highly-anticipated forthcoming album ‘High Road’ (Kemosabe/RCA Records), and will include a decade’s worth of iconic hits, from “TiK ToK” and “Your Love Is My Drug” through “Praying” and up to a selection of destined-to-be favorites from the new LP.
A fan presale starts Wed, Jan 8 and tickets go on sale to the general public on Fri, Jan 10. To see the full list of tour dates and get tickets, visit www.bitchimblessed.com. Every ticket purchased online includes a CD copy of ‘High Road’ (max 4 per household).

From Kesha: “While shaking my ass at the stroke of midnight, ringing in the new year, new decade, with my new album coming this month, I thought to myself, ‘Damn. I think the best medicine for happiness and having a beautiful life is to celebrate it while I have it, with the people I love most. And ummm…shake my ass. As often as possible.’ So…this is my HIGH ROAD TOUR announce!!! If you wanna come shake ur body and hear the new jams LIVE, this is the place to do it! And, on the HIGH ROAD TOUR, you will have not 1, but 2 grand supreme expert body movers – BIG FREEDIA and YOURS TRULY – ME!!!!! Come see us on tour this Spring!!!!!!”
‘High Road’ has already been praised as “shaping up to be her most eclectic album to date” (Idolator). The raucous church choir-backed lead single “Raising Hell” (Big Freedia) was called “a gift from the heavens” (Bustle) that “preaches the gospel of partying” (Rolling Stone), kicking off a new musical era which captures both the wild spirit of her legendary party anthems and the heart of her GRAMMY-nominated 2017 ‘Rainbow’ album.
Following “Raising Hell”, Kesha dropped pre-release tracks “My Own Dance” – an irreverently brilliant ode to embracing all the facets of yourself — and “Resentment” (feat. Sturgill Simpson, Brian Wilson & Wrabel) – a devastating country-tinged collaboration that tracks a relationship’s toxic unraveling — providing fans a snapshot of the eclectic nature of the album.
You can watch the album trailer for ‘High Road’ HERE which Paper Mag called “a tasty conceptual salad that you’re gonna eat right up.”
