Kesha to Make Return to the Stage Next Month for Bob Dylan's Birthday Concert

The two-day festival held to celebrate Dylan's 75th birthday will mark Kesha's first time to perform in public since her battle against Dr. Luke began.

AceShowbiz - Bob Dylan is throwing one hell of a bash in honor of his 75th birthday. The iconic star will hold a two-day tribute festival called Dylan Fest next month and he's asked several musicians to join the line-up of performers.

Kesha, formerly Ke$ha, is among famous faces set to make appearance during the event. It will be her first time to take the stage since her legal battle with Dr. Luke began. As fans know, she sued her former collaborator in 2014, claiming he sexually abused her when they were working together.

The 29-year-old is no stranger to Dylan's music. In 2011, she did a haunting cover of "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right" which was written by the veteran musician originally for his 1963 album, "The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan".

Dylan Fest is scheduled to take place on May 23 and May 24, the latter being the day Dylan turns 75, at Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. Kacey Musgraves, City and Colour, Kurt Vile, Jason Isbell and Ann Wilson are other names enlisted for the festival, which will also celebrate the 50th anniversary of 1966's "Blonde on Blonde", Dylan's first album recorded entirely in Nashville.

Tickets for the event go on sale this Saturday, April 16. The two-day show will benefit Thistle Farms, a Nashville charity that supports women who have survived addiction, trafficking and prostitution.
