Kesha Postpones Tour Dates to Undergo Surgery for Torn ACL

Kesha has been forced to postpone some of her tour dates after tearing her Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) in her knee while performing.

“I’m heartbroken to be writing this right now. I am being forced to postpone some of my upcoming international dates due to a recent injury I sustained while performing,” Kesha wrote on Instagram. “It’s my biggest joy in life to share my music with my fans all over the world, but I have to follow my doctors orders and undergo surgery to repair my torn ACL so I can get ready to give it all on my Summer tour and beyond. Moving these dates is making me sick with sadness, but I tried to will this injury away and unfortunately it didn’t work. I love you all and I’ll work every single day as hard as i can to recover and get back on stage as soon as possible. I’m so sorry and sending love always.”

The injury happened in Dubai on February 9. Kesha has postponed Australia, New Zealand, Taiwan and Japan tour dates, which were supposed to kick off on March 25. Kesha is also set to tour this summer with Macklemore and so far those dates have not been changed.
