More Details About Gag Order Tour 2023
Kesha mentioned in her post that presale tickets will be available on Wednesday (May 31) at 10 a.m. local time before the general sale opens to all fans on Friday at 10 a.m. local time. More information is available on Kesha’s website.
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, she referred to the new album as “the most intimate thing I’ve ever created.” She continued, “I really dug into some of my uglier emotions and sides of myself that are less fun.”
She added, “It’s scary being vulnerable. The fact that I have compiled an entire record of these emotions, of anger, of insecurity, of anxiety, of grief, of pain, of regret, all of that is so nerve-racking — but it’s also so healing.”
