The singer made the announcement about her 'Rainbow Tour' in an Instagram post.

After taking a fall at a show in Dubai earlier this month, Kesha is "heartbroken" to announce that she'll be postponing the March and April dates of her world tour.

"Moving these dates is making me sick with sadness, but I tried to will this injury away and unfortunately it didn't work," she said in an Instagram post Tuesday.

​The postponements will affect her Australia, New Zealand, Taiwan and Japan tour dates. The 11 changed dates will begin March 25 in Brendale, Australia, and end April 20 in Osaka, Japan, according to a press release. The release also encouraged fans to "hold on to their tickets," and look out for more specific details on reimbursements and reschedules in the near future.

Kesha's injury is the result of an onstage fall during a performance in Dubai on Feb. 9. The singer will undergo knee surgery to repair the torn ligament, a process that can sometimes take up to a year to fully recover.

The singer's decision to push back her own world tour was made with her upcoming summer tour with Macklemore in mind. The two will co-headline The Adventures of Kesha and Macklemore, which is still set to begin June 6 in Phoenix.
