Kesha is officially going on tour!
The "Tik Tok" singer took to social media on Tuesday to announce her summer tour, which kicks off on Saturday, July 23 in Las Vegas.
"Hey, guys! Are you coming to hang this summer with us? We're going on tour, me and the horse," Kesha shared in her Instagram video. "I'm playing songs you've never heard me play before, and I may never play again. [It's] only a couple shows, so I want to see you there. It's purely for the f**king love of rock and roll in my soul."

The F**k the World Tour will be making 17 stops across the U.S. and Canada between July and October. Tickets for the highly anticipated show are currently being sold on Kesha's website.
The 29-year-old star also confirmed that she’ll be performing with a new band called The Creepies. This will be Kesha's first string of shows since suing Dr. Luke in October 2014, accusing the producer of drugging and raping her more than a decade earlier -- claims Dr. Luke (real name Lukasz Gottwald) has dismissed as "outright lies." 
"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," she wrote on Instagram. "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," she continued. "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."
