Kesha has confirmed plans to perform in New Zealand next April, adding her name to a long list of pop stars visiting in 2018.

The Praying singer will perform at Trusts Arena on April 2. Tickets go on sale on December 14, with earlybird pre-sales available the day before.

The show will be part of her Rainbow world tour, backing up this this year's acclaimed comeback album of the same name.

The record is her first since alleging her former producer Dr Luke sexually abused her, charges she later dropped.
