Previous Kesha's Weird & Wonderful Rainbow Ride Round 2

The High Road Tour was the planned fifth headlining tour by Kesha in support of her fourth studio album, High Road. The tour was officially announced via promo video, which was filmed in Columbia, on January 7, 2020. The tour was officially canceled on May 1, 2020.


The tour was officially announced on January 7, 2020 through a promotional video with the singer in Columbia. Fans who signed up for the newsletter received a presale code and each ticket purchased online would receive a CD copy of Kesha's then-upcoming fourth studio album, High Road, which was released on January 31.[1] The first set of North American dates were revealed the same day, with one show in Europe revealed the following.

Kesha said of the tour through her newsletter, "While shaking my ass at the stroke of midnight, ringing in the new year, new decade, with my new album coming this month, I thought to myself, 'damn. I think the best medicine for happiness and having a beautiful life is to celebrate it while I have it, with the people I love most, and ummm shake my ass as often as possible.'"[2]

The pre-sale for the tickets began January 8 at 9am PT and ended the following day at 10pm local time. The tickets were made available to the public on January 10 at 10am local time.

One of the shows was supposed to include a performance at Austin City Limits Live.

The singer also announced that American rapper Big Freedia would also join the tour as a special guest. The two met on Kesha's cruise tour, Kesha's Weird & Wonderful Rainbow Ride, and have been friends ever since.

Due to a high demand, Kesha added a second show at The Rooftop in New York set for June 7.

On March 31, Kesha announced that she had to postpone the tour due to the COVID-19 pandemic and that new dates would be announced later. All tickets were supposed to be valid for the new dates. On April 9, she announced that the U.K. dates had been cancelled due to the pandemic. On May 1, Kesha announced that she was unable to reschedule the tour and that refunds will be available wherever tickets were bought, and she will look into touring during 2021.
