The chart-topping pop goddess is taking her new album, "High Road," across the country in 2020 — with a San Diego stop on the itinerary.

'TiK ToK,' the days are now counting down to May 2 — because that's when chart-topping pop goddess Kesha makes her grand return to San Diego!

The Grammy-nominated singer's fans will want to visit this link on Friday, Jan. 10, at 10 a.m., when general admission tickets officially go on sale for the Cal Coast Credit Union Open Air Theatre show.

Announced Tuesday morning, the tour — which also boasts New Orleans' "Queen of Bounce" superstar Big Freedia (who was featured on SoundDiego TV recently) as its opener — coincides with the release of Kesha's upcoming fourth studio album, "High Road," which is due out on Jan. 31. To-date, three singles have dropped from the record: "Raising Hell," "My Own Dance" and "Resentment."

The NOLA-based artist Big Freedia met up backstage with her tour mate in Low Cut Connie to talk to SoundDiego's J. Smith.

During a 2019 interview with Rolling Stone, she explained the the creation of "High Road" was markedly different than that of her last studio album, 2017's "Rainbow," saying that she "reconnected to the unrestrained joy and wildness that's always been a part of me — and in this process, I have had the most fun I've ever had making a record."

Many of you may remember her last time through San Diego back in July of last year at Harrah's Resort SoCal. Before that, she went out in 2018 on a co-headlining trek with none other than Macklemore.

Of course, we don't have to tell you that Kesha is one of the best-selling artists in recent history — she's sold more than 71 million records in the U.S. alone and was listed as the 26th top selling artist on Billboard's decade-end charts from 2010-19.

More importantly, she's a courageous trailblazer who helped spearhead the #MeToo movement, which took hold of the world over the last couple of years and has become (and continues to be) a powerful catalyst for equality and societal change.
