Kesha Announces Her New ‘F–ck the World Tour’

Singer will perform a string of dates in small, intimate venues next month

Watch out, world — Kesha’s coming for you, and you might be screwed.

The “Tik Tok” singer — who has spent a good chunk of 2016 embroiled in legal drama with her producer Dr. Luke — announced Tuesday that she’s hitting the road.

“Will I see you guys there? It’s going to be f-cking crazy,” Kesha said in a video accompanying the announcement.

In an Instagram post, Kesha elaborated that the tour arises from “my deep eternal love of rock & roll and country music.”

“So, for a short ride and in mostly small, intimate venues, I will be performing a new creepy creation … Until I can release my own music I will be reinventing some of my old songs and some of my favorite songs from my musical idols.”

The announcement was accompanied by a graphic noting the name of the new project, Kesha and the Creepies, with a graphic of the singer with blood pouring from her mouth, in front of a tiger.

The apparent name of the tour, judging from the graphic? “F-ck the World Tour.”

The road jaunt kicks off Aug. 9 in Cleveland,Ohio, before wrapping up Aug. 23 in Louisville, Kentucky.

Earlier this year, Kesha lost a legal bid to record outside of her contract with Sony. The singer claims that her producer, Lukasz “Dr. Luke” Gottwald, sexually abused her — allegations that he has denied.

Sony contended that it had offered to allow Kesha to record with other producers.

The day has come that I, now, present to you, Kesha and The Creepies. This project and upcoming tour comes from my deep eternal love of dirty rock & roll and country music. I thrive from making and performing music, and much like a flower with no sun, my soul slowly dies when I don’t get to create and perform. So, for a short ride and in mostly small intimate venues, I will be performing a new creepy creation. It’s been too long. Until I can release my own music I will be reinventing some of my old songs and some of my favorite songs from my musical idols. I’ve hand picked songs from artists that have helped shape who I am and the music I make today. I have missed you, all of you, so if you would like to boogie, come join us.
