Rainbow flags, spaceships, glitter beards, sequins, feathers, rhinestones and a whole lot of love: Kesha’s Animals came to party, sing and dance all night long at Thebarton Theatre in Adelaide (8 October).


A multitude of colourful, dazzling humans and an overwhelming amount of sparkles made for an incredibly unique atmosphere to suit the diverse crowd filled with fans of all ages.

Emerging from an enormous spaceship, exploding with attitude and true sass, Kesha blew her Adelaide ‘Animals’ minds to the moon and back before she even opened her mouth.

Donning a glistening bodysuit with detachable pants and a jacket made from tinsel, the wind blowing through her hair with her entourage and band ready to go wild – she certainly made us believe we were in for an impressive performance.

It was obvious that Kesha was pumped for her first Australian tour since 2011 - opening with power anthem ‘Woman’, she unleashed her never-ending energy, throwing her middle fingers up countless times while she bounced around the stage before transitioning into ‘Blah, Blah, Blah’ – a hit most remember from 2010.

A celebration of love and acceptance for all, Kesha made it clear that she loves what she does and the safe space she provides for her fans to be exactly who they are, and did so performing hit after hit – a highlight being ‘Godzilla’, which was added to the set list just for Australia by popular demand.

The gratitude she expressed about the opportunity to tour again was refreshing, especially for a pop star known to most as a party animal with a ‘DGAF’ attitude.

Kesha interacted with fans beyond most other pop stars in the world – chatting with them, drawing people’s tattoo designs and lovingly collecting people’s undergarments during ‘Take It Off’.

Kesha teased fans with a ‘fake last song’ before moving on to one of the most meaningful, stripped-back songs of the show ‘Praying’, which deals with some extremely public personal struggles. While she belted the lyrics out accompanied by her co-writer Ben Abraham, there was not a dry eye in the house.

With at least four outfit changes – all glistening under the spectacular light show – along with a glowing smile, Kesha shone brighter than an entire galaxy.

She proved she is truly a special kind of person and performer with much more to her than you’d believe at first glance. All I have to say is – YASS QUEEN!
