Cher says tour will be her last

  • Print

Cher says her Dressed to Kill tour is her final farewell tour. She's said that before, but judging from her recent statements and her daily Twitter dispatches, it seems like the 67-year-old is ready to hang up her giant feathered headdresses.

Last month, a fan directly asked her: "Is this really farewell?"

Cher replied: "I really hate that it is because I never thought I would have to say goodbye." She said that in her final number, where she is lifted above the crowd on a platform, "I fly over the audience and think goodbye."

The tour stops at Winnipeg's MTS Centre on June 20.

She says she hasn't fully recovered from her foot surgery last year and that her doctors are unhappy that she's onstage for nearly two hours each night. And the road takes its toll on every performer.

It's not that Cher is ready to retire. She is currently working on a Broadway musical about her life and is still cranking out videos and dance hits from last year's Closer to the Truth album, which has already spawned two Top 3 hits and is going for a third with I Walk Alone.
