Kesha and Macklemore will embark on an extensive North American tour in 2018
Kesha and Macklemore have announced an extensive joint tour for 2018.
The 'Praying' singer - whose fans are known as Animals - announced the North American shows called 'The Adventures of Kesha & Macklemore Tour' on Twitter on Monday (11.12.17).
In a video promoting the gigs, 'Thrift Shop' star Macklemore says: "I woke up today and I had an idea ... music? Ah f**k it. I've found a new language. My feet on blades. Everybody knows blades are super hot right now. So what better way to connect with America's youth by becoming a roller-blade coach."
Kesha then steps out of a car in a glittering ensemble and starts singing, she then asks Macklemore - real name Ben Haggerty - "Hey Ben, what are you doing?"
To which he replies: "I'm just kind of over music. Honestly, I just feel like blading is current, it's new, it's trendy."
Then Kesha says: "You are not a blader. I have a much better idea, what about if we go on tour, me and you together?"
Ben agrees: "OK, alright."
Kesha adds: "Me, you, the fans."
However, when Ben suggests: "Blading?", Kesha says: "No."
He then says: "Just shows?", and the 'Hymn' hitmaker replies: "Music."
Macklemore then says he's "in".
And Kesha pointing to his skating shoes, concludes: "Good, take these f**king things off."
Alongside the clip, Kesha wrote: "Animals! I'm going on tour with @macklemore. Come out and have some adventures with us. Get in line for the Adventures of Kesha & Macklemore Tour Presale here: http://tnspk.co/MKZi9WM
