The High Road Tour was a planned concert tour by American recording artist Kesha, in support of her fourth studio album, High Road. The tour was set to start in Sugar Land, Texas on April 23, 2020 and will feature special guest, Big Freedia. The tour was officially announced via promo video on January 7, 2020 and the first set of dates were released the same day. Pre-sale for the tickets were available on January 8, 2020 and ended the following day. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Kesha announced the tour had been cancelled and will look into touring during 2021.
The tour was officially announced on January 7, 2020 through a promotional video with the singer in Columbia. Fans who signed up for the newsletter received a presale code and each ticket purchased online would receive a CD copy of Kesha's fourth studio album, High Road, which is set to be released on January 31, 2020. The first set of North American dates were revealed the same day, with one show in Europe revealed the following.
Kesha said of the tour through her newsletter, "While shaking my ass at the stroke of midnight, ringing in the new year, new decade, with my new album coming this month, I thought to myself, 'damn. I think the best medicine for happiness and having a beautiful life is to celebrate it while I have it, with the people I love most, and ummm shake my ass as often as possible.'"
The pre-sale for the tickets began January 8, 2020 at 9am PT and ended the following day at 10pm local time. The tickets were made available to the public on January 10, 2020 at 10am local time.
One of the shows includes a performance at Austin City Limits Live.
The singer also announced that American rapper Big Freedia, who was featured on Kesha's single, "Raising Hell", would also join the tour as a special guest on select dates. The two met on Kesha's cruise tour, Kesha's Weird and Wonderful Rainbow Ride, and have been friends ever since.
Due to a high demand, a second show at The Rooftop in New York City was added for June 7, 2020. The pre-sale for that show began January 16 at 10 a.m. with the code "ROOFTOP", while the public sale was the following day.
On March 31, 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Kesha announced that the tour has been postponed and that new dates will be announced later. All tickets will still be valid for the new dates. However, on May 1, 2020, Kesha announced the tour was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic and will look into touring during 2021.
