February 2019 sees Kesha invite fans on board of her Weird & Wonderful Rainbow Ride for the experience of a lifetime. It’s an unorthodox idea from a pop star who is not afraid to do things her way.

When and where?

Kesha’s Weird & Wonderful Rainbow Ride kicks off in February 2019. Taking place over four nights from February 17thto February 21st, the Norwegian Pearl will be travelling from Tampa to Nassau in the Bahamas. 

Who’s going? 

Kesha has pulled out all the stops to bring a star-studded line-up on the ship with her. As well as the ‘Praying’ singer herself, fellow musician friends Betty Who, Wrabel, Superfruit, Matt and Kim and Girl Talk will perform. It’s not just a musical affair either, RuPaul’s Drag Race big names Bob The Drag Queen, Detox and Thorgy Thor will be present, as well as Queer Eye’s fabulous Jonathan Van Ness. Completing the line-up is hip-hop artist Big Freeida and DJs Maddøg, Stevie Psyclone and Zack Falls. Oh, and of course, 2200 Kesha fans. 

What’s the ship like? 

The Norweigan Pearl is a cruise ship famous enough to have its very own Wikipedia page. It’s been in use since launch in 2006 and has been used by bands including KISS and Paramore for special events in the past. Check out a promotional clip of the ship below.

What’s on the itinerary?

Day 1 sees the boat set sail from the Port of Tampa Bay and start the adventure. Day 2 will be spent at sea enjoying the on board activities and the show nights will kick off. Day 3 gives travellers a chance to head off the ship and enjoy Nassau in the Bahamas before another evening of on-board fun. Day 4 is another sea day as the boat makes its return trip ahead of disembarking on Day 5.

What’s on board? 

Blackjack Finals with Kesha – Fans can compete with Kesha in a Blackjack Tournament, from which $25 per participant will be donated to the charity RAINN. 

Lip Sync For Your Lifeboat – Hosted by Kesha and her special guests, passengers will have the chance to steal the show by dazzling in their own lip sync performance. 

Vow Renewal Ceremony with Kesha – Kesha will be giving fans the chance to renew their vows with the singer herself hosting. 

Cycling Class with Betty Who – Betty Who will be trading her microphone for a pair of trainers to host a special Cycling Class on board. 

Liberty Tattoo – For those Kesha fans wanting a permanent reminder of the fan they’ve had on board, Liberty Tattoo from Atlanta will be setting up shop on the ship.  

On top of all of that, Kesha writes of 2 unique live Pool Deck shows, pool deck dance parties, sports courts, jogging tracks, casinos, spas, on-board shopping and more. 

How does the festival work? 

Performances on Kesha’s Werid and Wonderful Cruise will happen in a festival-style arrangement. Kesha will be giving two unique shows of her own during the trip, whilst there will be five venues for dancing and singing happening simultaneously, exactly like at a festival. 

The three nights will have themes based around Kesha’s previous records too. One night will be Animal-themed, another Cannibal-themed and one final evening based on 2017’s Rainbow
