The Adventures of Kesha and Macklemore is the co-headlining tour by American singer Kesha and American rapper Macklemore,[1][2] in support of Kesha's third studio album Rainbow and Macklemore's second solo studio album Gemini, both released in 2017.

Background and development[edit]

On January 18, 2017, Macklemore posted a photo of him and Kesha together on Instagram, hinting at an upcoming collaboration.[3] When the tracklist of Gemini was unveiled on August 22, 2017, it was revealed that Macklemore and Kesha have worked together on a track named "Good Old Days".[4] The song was released as a promotional single on September 19, 2017,[5] and was sent to adult contemporary radio on October 9, 2017, as the album's third single.[6]

On December 11, 2017, Kesha and Macklemore released a video announcing a joint tour together in the summer of 2018. One dollar from each ticket purchase will benefit charity.
