Kesha is one of many western musical acts who have been forced to cancel or postpone tour dates in Japan following the earthquake. Her Japanese promoter, Creativeman Productions, who was responsible for pulling the plug, have also had to cancel their annual spring R&B and hip-hop festival 'Springgrove' with headliners Nelly and Flo Rida, as well as 'Punkspring,' their annual punk and hardcore fest that was set to feature Good Charlotte and Hoobastank.
In a statement released through Creative Productions, Kesha expressed her concern and pledged to help however she could.
"My heart is with Japan right now through this disaster and these hardships. I genuinely don't think right now would be appropriate timing for me to perform in Japan given the content and the spirit of my show, which is all about feeling exuberant, rowdy, and wild. I plan to bring my party there and to that part of the world when we are all ready to dance and Get $leazy together again. In the meantime I am going to do everything I can to help relief efforts and I encourage everyone in the world to do the same."
Kesha and Creativeman Productions plan on rescheduling the tour once the country gets back on its feet. If you'd like to help the Japan earthquake relief efforts, you can donate through the Red Cross.
