The Middle Tennessee native says she is following her doctor's orders to undergo surgery to fix her knee.

Kesha's Rainbow Tour was due to arrive in Brisbane on March 25 and would have seen a return to worldwide touring for the star, after her moving performance at the Grammy's. At the time the club exclusively told Ahlan! that the Praying singer had "endured a foot injury during her RedFest concert", and now, nearly three weeks on, she has cancelled the rest of her tour, as she prepares to undergo surgery for the knee injury she sustained in the UAE.

The dates affected by her injury will be in Australia, New Zealand, Taiwan and Japan. Ticket-holders for those date should "stay tuned" for information on rescheduled shows, according a press release from the tour's publicity team.

"I'm heartbroken to be writing this right now", she began the lengthy announcement.

Pitchfork reports that Kesha has cancelled her spring tour after tearing her ACL on February 9, after a concert in Dubai. "I'm so sorry and sending love always", she added.

On the bright side, Kesha's 30-city co-headlining North American tour with Macklemore (along with several solo shows) will begin as planned on June 6 in Phoenix, AZ. After surgery, you'll need to undergo more rehabilitation and physical therapy.
