Kesha's embarking on her first major tour since her legal battle with Dr. Luke began

'My soul slowly dies when I don't get to create and perform'

Kesha's legal issues with former producer Dr. Luke haven't yet been resolved, but that isn't keeping the singer from embarking on a tour of the US and Canada that's kicking off in Las Vegas this Saturday. The Fuck the World tour is covering 17 dates between July and October, all of which are currently being sold on Kesha's website, and she's performing with a new band called the Creepies. It's her first extended string of tour dates since suing Dr. Luke for alleged sexual assault in October 2014.

Kesha shed a little more light on what fans can expect from the tour in an Instagram post, one that also includes a delightfully batshit tour poster. "I thrive from making and performing music, and much like a flower with no sun, my soul slowly dies when I don't get to create and perform," wrote Kesha. "It's been too long. Until I can release my own music, I will be reinventing some of my old songs and some of my favorite songs from my musical idols. I've handpicked songs from artists that have helped shape who I am and the music I make today."

The day has come that I, now, present to you, Kesha and The Creepies. This project and upcoming tour comes from my deep eternal love of dirty rock & roll and country music. I thrive from making and performing music, and much like a flower with no sun, my soul slowly dies when I don't get to create and perform. So, for a short ride and in mostly small intimate venues, I will be performing a new creepy creation. It's been too long. Until I can release my own music I will be reinventing some of my old songs and some of my favorite songs from my musical idols. I've hand picked songs from artists that have helped shape who I am and the music I make today. I have missed you, all of you, so if you would like to boogie, come join us.
