Kesha Postpones Tour Dates After Tearing ACL

It looks like Kesha is taking some time off to get better, as the "Praying" singer announced she was "heartbroken" that she'll be postponing the March and April dates of her world tour.

Kesha made the big announcement on an Instagram post earlier today, as she said, "Moving these dates is making me sick with sadness, but I tried to will this injury away and unfortunately it didn't work."

For the "Rainbow Tour," the postponement dates will affect her Australia, New Zealand, Taiwan and Japan tour dates. In total, there will be 11 changed dates that begin on March 25 in Brendale, Australia. The postponement will end on April 20 in Osaka, Japan, according to The Hollywood Reporter. In a press release, fans were told to "hold on to their tickets." They were also told to keep an eye out for more specific details on reimbursements and reschedules in the near future.

This postponement is due to an injury Kesha suffered as the result of an onstage fall during her performance in Dubai on Feb. 9. Kesha will undergo knee surgery to repair the torn ligament, which can sometimes take up to one year to fully recover.

A big part of this decision came from her upcoming summer tour with macklemore. Kesha decided to push back her own tour to have the surgery and be more ready for "The Adventures of Kesha and Macklemore" this summer, which is still set to begin June 6 in Phoenix.
