Rolling Stone called one of Kesha's recent live performances in Nashville "one of the most positively uplifting, inclusive concert experiences available in 2017." Backed by a live band and with her trademark swagger and playful snarl, Kesha will perform a set of her past global hits, her showstopping current single "Praying," and other songs from 'Rainbow' (Kemosabe Records/RCA Records), "an artistic feat" (Entertainment Weekly) for the singer, which debuted at No. 1 on The Billboard 200 and topped charts in nearly 30 markets worldwide.

In 2016, Macklemore was featured in an MTV special with President Obama about the opioid epidemic in America and was the first US citizen ever to participate in the Presidential Weekly Address.
