Ke$ha

Pop artist Ke$ha performs at the 2011 Delaware State Fair. 

Ke$ha is not your typical pop artist. Her catchy dance hooks, spoken-word rap style, party girl image and in-your-face attitude set her apart from the rest. Her songs have a strong storytelling element, to which she credits her Nashville upbringing and songwriter mother.  

Ke$ha's debut single, "Tik Tok", was an overwhelming hit, reaching #1 in eleven countries and selling 5 million copies in the US alone. Ke$ha's debut album, Animal, features "Tik Tok" as well as hits like "Blah Blah Blah" and "Your Love is My Drug." She's had 5 number one singles so far, and no sign of stopping anytime soon. 

Tickets for track and stadium seating are $50. Tickets for grandstand and clubhouse seats are $45. Track seating is general admission with chairs.  All other seating sections are reserved seating. Please note that these prices include all ticket handling and service fees.
