Christmas came early, you guys.

The comeback queen of justice and glitter is hitting the roadand she's got company.

The Adventures of Kesha and Macklemore tour kicks off its nine-week, 30-show run in Phoenix, Arizona on June 6 and will roll through DTE Energy Music Theatre on Wednesday, July 18.

The co-headlining tour follows a successful 2017 for both artists. Kesha released the beautifully rebellious Rainbow — her first album in five years following a legal battle with alleged abuser and producer Dr. Luke. Macklemore dropped Gemini earlier this year, his second solo release without Ryan Lewis.

The tour will donate $1 from every ticket sold to support RAINN (Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network,) and M Plus 1, an organization that advances racial and social justice.

Tickets go on sale Friday, Dec. 15 at noon and can be purchased here. A full list of tour dates and ways to score early bird tickets can be found on Kesha's official website.
