See CHER’s farewell to Melbourne show!
Touching down in Australia this month, the global superstar will bring her spectacular Here We Go Again! Tour to Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena for a massive third and final performance on Saturday, October 6, celebrating one of music’s most phenomenal and enduring careers now spanning six decades.
Buoyed by the amazing response to her March visit to celebrate the 40th Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras, Cher begins her Australian tour this month after a 13-year absence. Fans can expect to be dazzled by the renowned lavish and flamboyant costumes and elaborate stage production, while revelling in a more than 90-minute performance of 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”.
On September 28 Cher releases her latest album, Dancing Queen (through Warner Music Australia), a celebration of ABBA featuring eleven cover versions including the single “Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)”, following her recent return to the big screen in Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, in cinemas now. The movie has been a worldwide smash hit currently grossing in excess of USD 370 million. In Australia, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again is already one of the top ten movies for 2018.
Opening all shows on the tour will be party DJ, Andrew McClelland.

“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”, said Cher.
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”. 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.
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.
