Kesha announces US Rainbow Tour
Kesha has announced her first US tour in four years. The 'Praying' hitmaker will embark on a 21-date run, her first since 2013, kicking off at Iron City in Birmingham, Atlanta on September 26 and wrapping at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles on November 1. The tour is in support of her first record in since 2012's 'Warrior', 'Rainbow' which the 30-year-old beauty made for her fans, affectionately known as Animals. Announcing the tour, she said: "My new album 'Rainbow' is dedicated to my fans, and I'm so excited to be able to invite you all to come boogie with me on my 'Rainbow Tour'. "I would not have made it to this point without my animals and supporters so now come out and join the celebration with me." 'Rainbow' is released on August 11, it includes the singles 'Woman' and 'Learn to Let Go' and lead track 'Praying'. Kesha says the latter helped her through a battle with depression. She previously said of her track: "'Praying', my first single in almost four years, comes out today. I have channeled my feelings of severe hopelessness and depression, I've overcome obstacles, and I have found strength in myself even when it felt out of reach. I've found what I had thought was an unobtainable place of peace. This song is about coming to feel empathy for someone else even if they hurt you or scare you. It's a song about learning to be proud of the person you are even during low moments when you feel alone. It's also about hoping everyone, even someone who hurt you, can heal."
