UPDATE: Kesha has shared details for the awesomely titled, awesomely postered Kesha and the Creepies: Fuck The World Tour. Below, see her tweet with presale details, plus the full list of dates including Mad Decent Block Party gigs followed by our original post.

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.

After months of endless updates on Kesha‘s legal battle with Dr. Luke and her label over her sexual abuse allegations against the producer, news went quiet, and updates began to be music-related again. She was announced as the Mad Decent Block Party headliner, she performed at the BBMAs. But today (July 19) could be the most promising development yet, as Kesha took to Instagram to tell fans she’s heading on a small summer tour during which she’ll be performing new music.

“We’re going on a tour,” she said in the video. “I’m playing songs you’ve never heard me play before and I may never play again — only a couple of shows.”

The dates haven’t been officially released yet, but SPIN points out that Bandsintown has listed a string of dates beginning July 23 in Las Vegas and running through August.

We’ll update this post once the official announcement is out.
