The time has come to get creepy as Kesha announces ‘Fuck the World Tour’

A celebration of her “deep eternal love of dirty rock’n’roll and country music,” Kesha claims this latest guise has been established for her to continue performing while her legal battle with producer Dr Luke and Sony continues.

Kesha said the Creepies dates will be a different show than what she has planned for Mad Decent and her casino dates. “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,” she wrote. “So, for a short ride and in mostly intimate venues, I will be performing a new creepy creation. It’s been too long.”

In a separate post, the singer revealed that she’ll use the tour to play “songs you’ve never heard me play before and I may never play again.” It’s also likely that she’ll reinvent her old songs in her new style alongside covering songs by her musical idols.

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. The time has come to get creepy ☠

This short tour will be one of Kesha’s first performance since the onset of her contract dispute – during which she accused producer Dr Luke, whose real name is Lukasz Gottwald, of sexual assault, battery, harassment and emotional distress. The producer denies the claims. In April a court ruled against the singer with regard to her Sony contract.

The pop star’s creative output has been relatively muted throughout the ongoing legal proceedings: she has released one single, True Colors. And, despite allegations that she was denied permission to perform after fears from Kemosabe – Dr Luke’s label partnership with Sony – that Kesha would “use the performance as a platform to discuss the [pending] litigation”, she made a well-received public appearance at 2016’s Billboard music awards, covering Bob Dylan’s It Ain’t Me, Babe with Ben Folds.

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.
