The iconic, inimitable Cher is heading back to the road in March for a 49-date tour dubbed “Dressed to Kill” and will visit Philips Arena in May.
Farewell tour? What farewell tour? Fans who recall that endless outing in the early 2000s might also remember that the title of the tour was changed to “The Never Can Say Goodbye Tour,” leaving the door open for a return such as this.
Cher’s upcoming jaunt launches March 22 in Phoenix and comes to Atlanta at 7:30 p.m. May 12. Other stops include Brooklyn, Las Vegas and Washington D.C. (as well as Charlotte and Raleigh, N.C., and Jacksonville, Fla., for locals who might want to see her elsewhere in the vicinity).
American Express cardmembers can purchase tickets beginning at 10 a.m. Sept. 30. The general on sale for Atlanta is at noon Oct. 4. Tickets are $29.50-$135. Fans who purchase ticketsonline through Ticketmaster will also receive a free copy of her new album, “Closer to the Truth," which arrives Sept. 24.
In addition to her new album, which she’ll talk up with David Letterman (Sept. 24) and on “Live! With Kelly & Michael” (Oct. 1), Cher will also serve as a mentor with Blake Shelton on “The Voice” in October.
In other ticket news, fans of Kanye West and Widespread Panic should mark Sept. 27 on the calendar.
