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 more than 50 years and 6 decades.
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, performing at Perth Arena on Friday 12 October 2018.
Fans can expect to be dazzled by Cher’s 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”.
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”.
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.
Tickets go on sale at 10am (local time) on Friday, May 18 through Ticketek.
