CHER We got you, babe


One of pop music’s greatest and most enduring names, Cher will make her highly-anticipated return to Australia this year, celebrating one of music’s most phenomenal and enduring careers, now spanning more than 50 years and six decades. She plays Perth Arena on Friday, October 12.

An Academy Award winner for Best Actress in Moonstruck, Cher’s Here We Go Again Tour takes its name from her return to the big screen in July his year for Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again. Tickets will go on sale from 10am Perth time, next Friday, May 18.

Bouyed by the amazing response to her March visit to celebrate the 40th Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras, Cher is returning Down Under after a 13 year absence.

Fans can expect to be dazzled by Cher’s renowned lavish and flamboyant costumes and elaborate stage production, plus hits and classics such as: Believe, If I Could Turn Back Time, Strong Enough, I Found Someone, Gypsys, Tramps & Thieves, as well as going all the way back to where it began, with I Got You Babe.

As Cher says: “My visit to Sydney’s Mardi Gras reminded me how unique and beautiful Australia is. It’s been 13 years since I toured there so I thought let’s do it one more time.”

Cher last toured Australia in 2005 when she performed arena shows as part of her three-year Farewell Tour (the irony isn’t lost on us), which played to more than three million fans worldwide and remains one of the most successful concert tours in history.

Beginning as a studio backing singer, Cher met fledgling producer Sonny Bono and they quickly became 1960s pop sensations with the worldwide smash I Got You Babe. Their attention-grabbing hair and clothes were an early hint of Cher’s subsequent influence on the world of fashion.

Cher stunned the music world with yet another dramatic re-invention in the 1980s, culminating with her controversial hit video for If I Could Turn Back Time. But it would be her venture into dance music with the Grammy-winning, 20-million-selling Believe that eclipsed it all.

Along the way she has been richly rewarded with an Academy Award, a Grammy, an Emmy, three Golden Globes, a Cannes Film Festival Award and a People’s Choice Award.
