The Adventures of Kesha and Macklemore comes to Rogers
Break out your glitter and floor-length furs. Kesha and Macklemore are hitting the road together for their aptly named tour, The Adventures of Kesha and Macklemore, which comes to the Walmart AMP on June 25.
For Kesha, that has included her triumphant latest #1 album Rainbow, a completely sold-out headlining tour, and two recent Grammy nominations.
For Macklemore, Gemini – which is his first solo effort in 12 years – debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 chart, #1 on the charts for Rap, R&B/Hip-Hop, and Independent Albums, and includes the platinum-certified single, “Glorious.” He recently wrapped up a completely sold-out U.S. tour.
The artists donate $1 of every ticket sold to The Adventures of Kesha and Macklemore tour. Kesha will donate her proceeds to RAINN (Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network), the largest anti-sexual assault organization in the United States. Macklemore will donate his proceeds to Plus1, an 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.” Attendees are sure to enjoy her live band and will recognize her trademark swagger and playful snarl.
Kesha will perform a set of her global hits, including her show-stopping current single, “Praying,” and other songs from Rainbow – dubbed “an artistic feat” for the singer by Entertainment Weekly. The album debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 and topped charts in nearly 30 markets worldwide.
Praised by The New York Times, Billboard, Vanity Fair and more, and ranked #4 in Rolling Stone’s 50 Best Albums of 2017, Rainbow also earned Kesha the first Grammy nominations of her career, and “Praying” received 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 four Grammys, five MTV Awards, two American Music Awards and one BET Award. In 2016, Macklemore was featured in an MTV special with President Obama about the opioid epidemic in America and was the first U.S. 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.). The duo has performed the song together on Ellen and at KIIS-FM’s Jingle Ball.
