Kesha Announces Mini-Residency in Las Vegas
Kesha is dipping her toes into the Vegas residency waters: On Thursday (June 9), the singer announced that she will perform three nights this summer at the Wynn Las Vegas, starting on June 23. The singer will revisit her catalog -- which contains seven top 10 singles as a solo artist and three more as a featured artist -- onstage at the Intrigue Nighclub.
Kesha took the stage in Vegas just last month as part of the Billboard Music Awards. (Her performance was only allowed to take place with the explicit approval of Dr. Luke, with whom she's embroiled in a legal battle over allegations that he raped her; it's not clear if the same is true of the new shows.) At the time, she sang a cover of Bob Dylan's "It Ain't Me, Babe" with accompaniment from Ben Folds on piano and Rob Moose on violin. "She's standing up for her artistic growth, and we can see that," Folds told Billboard after the performance. "When you see someone walking through a little bit of the fire and being on the side of following their heart and instincts, that's great."
Kesha's round of Vegas shows will take place June 23, June 25 and July 23. Get more information here.
