CHER, the worldwide superstar and icon, will make her highly-anticipated return to Australia this year, celebrating one of music’s most phenomenal and enduring careers now spanning six decades.

Bouyed by the amazing response to her March visit to celebate the 40th Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras, Cher is returning Down Under after a 13 year absence. Fans need only wait just few months longer before the award-winning actress and recording artist will perform arena spectaculars this September and October.
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 12 sold-out arena shows as part of her three-year Farewell Tour, 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 for best actress in “Moonstruck“, a Grammy, an Emmy, three Golden Globes, a Cannes Film Festival Award and a People’s Choice Award. In July his year Cher will return to the big screen in Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again.
Due to tremendous demand, Cher is currently performing an extended run of the spectacular Classic Cher show at Las Vegas’ Monte Carlo Resort Park Theater, continuing a multi-year run.
