U.S. Cellular is throwing a concert to celebrate 30 years of offering service in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and popstar Kesha will headline the free show.
The concert will take place on November 3 at the U.S. Cellular Center in Center Rapids. In order to receive tickets, concertgoers must obtain them in-person. Radio Z102.9 station and the U.S. Cellular Center Facebook page will sporadically release tickets at the box office at random times. Fans will receive an hour notice when a new batch of tickets are being released.
Additionally, tickets will be available at U.S. Cellular stores in the surrounding cities. A total of 2,500 tickets will be spread between seven stores in the area on October 13. Even if a fan is not a customer of U.S. Cellular, they can still grab a free ticket in-store.
Kesha last performed in Iowa in July 2017 at the 80/35 Music Festival in Des Moines. The singer released her fourth studio album, Rainbow, last August. Amid her lawsuit with producer Dr. Luke, Kesha dropped the inspirational record which features hit singles “Praying,” “Rainbow,” and “Woman.”
Although she had been known for “party” tracks like “Tik Tok,” “Blah Blah blah” and “Take It Off” from her debut Animal, as well as tracks “We R Who We R,” “Blow,” and “Cannibal” from Cannibal, her latest record takes a new approach. The LP includes featured artists Eagles Of Death Metal, The Dap-Kings Horns, and Dolly Parton, all while mixing various genres with her notable pop sound.
Rainbow debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and has been said to be her best album to date.
“I feel like myself,” Kesha told Rolling Stone in a 2017 interview, “for the first time ever. And I made a record I’m extremely proud of, from the bottom of my guts – I excavated the most gnarly lyrics that were so difficult for me. And people still like it! It’s really beautiful, and it’s very healing. I feel like I’m being seen for what I actually am, and people are OK with it.”
