Ke$ha is gearing up to take her glitter-drenched show on the road in 2011. The pop star — and current Hot 100 crown-holder — today (Nov. 9) announced the first dates for her Get $leazy tour, her first North American headlining trek.
The Get $leazy tour, which follows Ke$ha’s gig opening for Rihanna earlier this year, will kick off Feb. 15 in Portland and wrap May 6 in Los Angeles, with a short break in March. Tickets for all shows go on sale Nov. 19 at Ticketmaster and LiveNation.
In addition to announcing her tour this month, Ke$ha will release “Cannibal,” the companion album to her breakthrough debut “Animal,” on Nov. 22. Fans who pre-order the set at keshasparty.com will be able to order pre-sale tickets for the tour from Nov. 10 until Nov. 18.
“Cannibal’s” lead single, “We R Who We R,” debuted No. 1 on the Hot 100 last week, becoming just the second song to do so this year and 17th song in the chart’s history to achieve the feat.
Ke$ha will also perform at the American Music Awards — where she’s up for favorite female artist, artist of the year and breakthrough artist — on Nov. 21, the day before “Cannibal” drops. The singer snagged best new artist at the MTV European Music Awards on Sunday in Madrid.
