Cher Announces 'Here We Go Again Tour'


Seventeen years after her farewell tour kicked off in Canada, Cher is going back on tour.

The 72-year-old music icon on Friday announced she’s embarking early next year on the Here We Go Again Tour. It follows the release of her album of ABBA covers, Dancing Queen, which drops Sept. 28. (The tour's name comes from the ABBA classic "Mamma Mia.")

Cher will kick off the tour in Florida on Jan. 17 and wrap it up in Minnesota in May. There are only two Canadian stops – Toronto’s Scotiabank Arena on April 22 and Ottawa’s Canadian Tire Centre on April 24.

Tickets go on sale to the general public on Sept. 14 at 10 a.m.

Cher’s so-called Farewell Tour kicked off in Toronto in June 2002 and ran until early 2005 – and included stops in Victoria, Vancouver, Kelowna, Edmonton, Calgary, Regina, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, London, Hamilton, Ottawa, and Halifax.

In 2014, Cher was back on the road on the Dressed To Kill Tour, which played Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver.
