Anticipation has been steadily abuzz since February with Kesha leaving a breadcrumb trail of clues hinting at a new album. On May 19th, Kesha released her 5th album entitled Gag Order, which features the legendary producer, Rick Rubin.
Fans have generally received the new album quite well.
For many fans, this has been long coming, and Gag Order finds Kesha exploring her artistic authenticity. But, then again, there’s a fair chance that Rick Rubin’s perspective and wisdom may have helped the situation.
Rick Rubin has produced some of the greatest albums of all time. Some of his credentials include:
- Reign In Blood by Slayer
- Blood Sugar Sex Magik by Red Hot Chili Peppers
- Licensed To Ill by Beastie Boys
But, of course, like any major fanbase, the real question has been whether she would embark on a tour. On May 30, 2023, Kesha announced plans for a North American tour with Jake Wesley Rogers providing opening support.
Within just 4 hours of the Instagram post, over 35k fans reacted to the announcement with excitement. An overwhelming number of comments provided plenty of evidence that many Kesha fans live in Brazil.
The touring itinerary appears to be coast-to-coast so that no American geographical area is left out. What remains to be seen (and what many are hoping for) is a European tour.
Because the tour is essentially 1 month long, an international tour isn’t out of the question. But this tour looks quite fun for those who can attend, especially with a Halloween show in Philly.
