Other tour stuff

Hockey Dad

In good news – unless you missed out – Hockey Dad’s upcoming tour is totally sold out. Hey, you snooze, you lose!


In bad news, Kesha has had to postpone her upcoming Australian tour due to an ACL tear in her knee. No, she hasn’t been playing AFLW, rather she sustained the ouchy injury after a fall during a recent gig in Dubai. While her Bluesfest appearance obviously can’t go ahead, if you have tickets for any of the other shows hold onto them, as new dates will be announced presently.

“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 so I can get ready to give it my all on my summer tour and beyond,” said Kesha. “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.”
