Worldwide pop superstar Ke$ha has announced the “Get $leazy” tour, her first North American headlining tour. The “Get $leazy” tour kicks off in Portland on February 15th and wraps in Los Angeles on May 6th. Ke$ha, who just won the MTV EMA for Best New Act, is touring in support of the release of Cannibal (RCA Records / Kemosabe Entertainment), the highly anticipated companion to her platinum selling debut album Animal on November 22nd. It will be made available for sale separately, as well as bundled with Animal in a special deluxe repackage called Animal + Cannibal.
Tickets go on sale to the general public on November 19th at Ticketmaster.com and LiveNation.com. Fans that pre-order Cannibal or Animal + Cannibal on www.keshasparty.com will have access to presale tickets for the “Get $leazy” tour from November 10th through November 18th.
Ke$ha traveled the U.S this summer on her first arena tour with Rihanna, kicking off in Los Angeles where the LA Times called her a "...very charismatic artiste..." and the New York Times called her performance "purely joyous". Ke$ha will be headlining her first European tour in December, making stops in London, Russia and many other major cities and countries.
2010 has been an incredible year for Ke$ha, less than 10 months after the #1 debut of Animal in January 2010, it has been certified platinum and sold over 2 million units worldwide. Ke$ha is nominated for two American Music Awards, Artist of The Year and Pop/Rock – Favorite Female Artist.
Last week Ke$ha debuted at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with her new single “We R Who We R”. Ke$ha is the first female artist to debut at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 since Britney Spears did with “3” in 2009 and the first artist since Eminem’s debut with “Not Afraid” back in May. Last month Ke$ha became the 11th solo female artist to collect at least four Billboard Hot 100 Top 10s from a debut album when her current single "Take It Off" catapulted up the chart. She has sold 14 million combined tracks and ringtones in the U.S alone to date and 17 million worldwide, including her smash breakthrough single "TiK ToK' which has sold over 8.5 million combined units. Ke$ha is an international powerhouse, Animal has been certified Gold or Platinum in six markets and is the biggest selling debut album from an international female in 2010 in the UK. Ke$ha, who was just nominated for 2 EMA's, has sold nearly 4 million tracks outside of the U.S, and nearly 1 million albums.
