Kesha Concert in Pittsburgh Aims to Get Out The Vote
The singer, who has written songs for movies modeled after political figures, will perform Downtown just days before the midterm elections.
The clock is tick-tocking away to the Nov. 6 midterm elections — and one celebrity is coming to Pittsburgh to remind everyone.
Musical artist Kesha, known for hit songs such as “Tik Tok,” “Your Love is My Drug” and “Praying,” is set to headline the “Countdown 2 Vote” event Nov. 3 Downtown. The event, sponsored by the Delta Foundation of Pittsburgh, starts at 6 p.m. on Liberty Avenue between 9th and 10th streets.
Kesha is the latest celebrity to visit Pittsburgh for a get-out-the-vote event. The singer herself has been outspoken about many political issues, even writing songs for movies modeled after political figures.
One of her recent songs, “Here Comes the Change,” is featured in a film set to be released in December, “On The Basis Of Sex.” The film is inspired by a true story, portraying a young Ruth Bader Ginsburg working to bring a radical gender discrimination case to the Supreme Court.
At the event, full-service bars will be available to those over 21, as well as various food options.
The concert is standing room only, and tickets start at $39, increasing to $69 the day of the event. Attendees must be 18 or older or be accompanied by a parent or guardian over 25. To purchase tickets, visit countdown2vote.org.
