Kesha to sing at Bob Dylan 75th birthday concert

Kesha will sing at 'Dylan Fest: A Celebration of Bob Dylan's 75th Birthday' in what will be her first performance since her claims of sexual abuse against Dr. Luke were dismissed.

The 29-year-old star has been booked for the two-night music extravaganza, which is set to pay tribute to the folk icon's diamond jubilee, on May 23-24 at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium.

The occasion also marks the 50th anniversary of the release of Dylan's first album 'Just Like a Woman'and Kesha will be joined by 30 stars of the country music and folk world, including 'Biscuits' singer Kacey Musgraves.

The star hasn't performed since she filed allegations of unproven serious sexual assault against her former producer and mentor, and recently had her attempts to get out of her Sony contact denied by a judge.

But the 'Tik Tok' hitmaker could be returning to the stage sooner than May as she is rumoured to be performing at the upcoming Coachella festival in Indio, California, which takes place from Friday (15.04.16) to April 24.

A source told X17 Online: "Kesha is beginning to realise that she needs to take her career into her own hands, and this is her way of doing just that."

Prior to her court drama, Kesha teased fans that she was working on "weird country" music and was busy making the follow-up to her 2012 album 'Warrior' which was set to include some wacky country tracks.

She said: "I've been working on music for like, months now, obsessing in the studio all night, so I've got a lot of new music but it's been so all over the place. Some of it's like weird country, then I have love songs, so it's all over the place so I'm still kind of compiling my record."
