Kesha Announces First Show Since Dr. Luke Legal Battle

In late May, pop singer Kesha will return to the stage for the first time since losing her court battle against Sony Music and producer Dr. Luke over allegations of rape and other abuses. The “Tik Tok” singer will appear May 23 and 24 at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium as part of a festival celebrating Bob Dylan’s 75th birthday and the 50th anniversary of his country-folk album Nashville Skyline. Kesha will perform alongside big names like Kacey Musgraves, Emmylou Harris, and Dhani Harrison. Six days ago, a judge dismissed Kesha’s claims against Dr. Luke and refused to force Sony to terminate her contract with her accused abuser.
