CINCINNATI -- Get your glitter ready, Tri-State.

Both artists are coming off triumphant years: In August, Kesha debuted the No. 1 "Rainbow," her first album in more than four years following a prolonged legal battle with her music producer. She has earned two Grammy nominations for the effort.

In September, Macklemore put out his first solo album in 12 years, "Gemini," which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart.

Kesha and Macklemore also appear together on "Good Old Days" from the rapper's new album. Rolling Stone called one of Kesha's recent live performances in Nashville "one of the most positively uplifting, inclusive concert experiences available in 2017." Macklemore's Gemini has been called "powerful" by Rolling Stone, "uplifting and affirming" by Billboard and "stirring" by Entertainment Weekly.

The nine-week, 30-market tour kicks off on June 6 in Phoenix and wraps up Aug. 5 in Tampa, Florida.
