Kesha has been forced to postpone her Australia and New Zealand shows which were scheduled for March and April due to a very bad knee injury that occurred after a fall during a concert in Dubai (video below).  She is due for surgery on Wednesday with rehabilitation to commence as soon as possible.

"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."

As we previously reported the set dates were set to begin 25 March in Brisbane, Australia. Ticket-holders for Australia and New Zealand are encouraged to hold onto their tickets and stay tuned for further information about rescheduled dates, which will be announced in the near future. All existing tickets will be valid for the new dates to be announced. Obviously, the Byron Bay Bluesfest performance will not be able to be rescheduled.
