In news timed to coincide with the release of Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again – in which she (spoiler alert) makes a cameo appearance, helicopter arrival and all – Cher has announced a one-night-only show at Wollongong’s WIN Entertainment Centre on Tuesday October 16.
In a musical return reminiscent of Australia’s John Farnham (who will perform Whispering Jack in full at a series of A Day on the Green concerts at wineries across the country), Here We Go Again! is Cher’s first tour of Australia since her sold-out Farewell shows in 2005. It comes after her headline appearance at the Sydney Mardi Gras Party earlier this year.
Fans are promised a “more than 90-minute performance”, featuring hits from Cher’s six-decade career, including Believe, If I Could Turn Back Time, Strong Enough and, from her time performing with ex-husband Sonny, I Got You Babe.
Tickets to Cher’s Wollongong show go on sale Thursday July 26 at 1pm. Pre-sale tickets for My Live Nation Members start on Tuesday July 24 at 12pm. More information here.
