and Macklemore Will Conquer 2018 with
'The Adventures of Kesha and Macklemore' Tour
and Macklemore will team up this summer for 'The Adventures
of Kesha and Macklemore' Tour. Presented by Live Nation,
the tour follows acclaimed and celebrated eras for both artists.
For Kesha, that has included her triumphant latest No. 1 album
'Rainbow,' a completely sold-out headlining tour, and two recent
GRAMMY® nominations. For Macklemore, 'Gemini,' his first solo
effort in 12 years, debuted at No. 2 on The Billboard 200 chart,
No. 1 on the charts for Rap, R&B/Hip-Hop and Independent Albums
and includes Platinum-certified single "Glorious" with the viral
video that has been viewed over 95 million times. Macklemore
also recently wrapped up a completely sold-out US tour.
The nine-week, 30-market tour pairs the two trailblazing artists
for an epic summer trek of North American amphitheaters and
arenas, starting June 6 at the Ak-Chin Pavilion in Phoenix,
AZ, and ending August 5 at the MIDFLORIDA Credit Union Amphitheatre
in Tampa, FL.
$1 from every ticket sold will be donated on
'The Adventures of Kesha and Macklemore' tour. Kesha
will donate her proceeds to RAINN (Rape, Abuse, & Incest
National Network), the largest anti-sexual assault organization
in the US. Macklemore will donate his proceeds
to M Plus1, and organization that advances racial and
social justice through the M&RL Equity Fund.
Rolling Stone called one of Kesha's recent live performances
in Nashville "one of the most positively uplifting, inclusive
concert experiences available in 2017." Backed by a live band
and with her trademark swagger and playful snarl, Kesha will
perform a set of her past global hits, her show-stopping current
single "Praying," and other songs from 'Rainbow' (Kemosabe Records/RCA
Records), "an artistic feat" (Entertainment Weekly) for
the singer, which debuted at No. 1 on The Billboard 200
and topped charts in nearly 30 markets worldwide.
Praised by New York Times, Billboard, Vanity
Fair and more, as well as ranked #4 in Rolling Stone's
50 Best Albums of 2017, 'Rainbow' earned Kesha the first GRAMMY
nominations of her career, with 'Rainbow' up for Best Pop Vocal
Album and "Praying" getting a nod for Best Pop Solo Performance.
Collectively, Macklemore's music videos have been viewed over
2.7 billion times and he is one of only two rappers to have
a Diamond-certified single. His breakthrough album 'The Heist'
with producer partner Ryan Lewis earned the duo 4 GRAMMY awards,
5 MTV Awards, 2 American Music Awards and 1 BET Award. In 2016,
Macklemore was featured in an MTV special with President Obama
about the opioid epidemic in America and was the first US citizen
ever to participate in the Presidential Weekly Address.
Kesha and Macklemore also appear together on "Good Old Days"
from the rapper's latest album, 'Gemini' (Bendo/Warner Bros.).
