Slowly but surely, Kesha is reclaiming control over her life, one show at a time. The singer, whose career has long been stalled amid an ongoing legal battle against producer Dr. Luke over allegations of abuse, has announced that she's going on tour this summer. Sharing the news on Instagram, she says she'll be performing "songs you've never heard me play before, and I may never play again" and only at "a couple" of shows. So far, details on the tour are scarce (tickets go on sale at 2 p.m. EST), but her army of fans have discovered, via Bandcamp, that the tour will be called "Kesha and the Creepies: The Fuck the World Tour," and will have dates in the U.S. from July 23 in Las Vegas through October 1 in Los Angeles, including previously announced stops on Diplo's Mad Decent Block Party. Kesha stepped back into the spotlight this year, performing at Coachella with Zedd, at the Billboard Music Awards (after fighting Dr. Luke's label to get there), and at Dylan Fest in Nashville. Now, she says she'll get to sing across the country "purely for the fucking love of rock and roll and my soul."
