AceShowbiz - %cKe$ha% and %cMacklemore%'s fans are getting the chance to see both stars performing together on stage. The twosome announced on Monday, December 11 that they would embark on a 30-date North American joint tour called "The Adventures of Kesha and Macklemore" in summer 2018.
The stars announced the tour on their YouTube accounts, sharing a one-minute goofy promo video. The clip finds Macklemore, whose real name is Benjamin Hammond Haggerty, saying that he's giving up his music career to become a "rollerblading coach."
The "Die Young" songstress then shows up and convinces him to go on a tour with her instead. "I'm in," Macklemore says, to which Kesha responds while pointing out to his rollerblade skates, "Good. Take this f***in things off."
The duo will kick off their joint tour on June 6 in Phoenix before stopping in Salt Like City, Kansas City and more. They are set to wrap up the tour on August 5 in Tampa, Florida. Pre-sale tickets will be available to Citi card members on Wednesday, December 13 at 10 P.M. through Citi's Private Pass program. Meanwhile, general tickets will go on sale on Friday, December 15 via Live Nation.
In a statement released through the site, the duo announced that one dollar from each ticket purchase would be donated to social organizations. The statement read, "Kesha will donate her proceeds to RAINN, the largest anti-sexual assault organization in the U.S. Macklemore will donate his proceeds to M Plus1, an organization that advances racial and social justice through the M&RL Equity Fund."
