Legendary songstress Cher has announced that she will perform an Irish date as part of her ‘Here We Go Again’ tour for the first time in over 15 years. The multi-talented diva is set to play the 3Arena on Friday, November 1 2019.

Tickets will go on sale this Friday, December 14 at 10 AM, so be sure to grab them while you can.

Cher will also play venues in London, Glasgow, Birmingham, Manchester and Leeds before her Irish date.

Expect all of Cher’s greatest hits from ‘Half-Breed’, to ‘Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves’, and of course, the show-stopping ‘Believe’, as well as new songs from the icon’s latest album – her tribute to the music of ABBA – “Dancing Queen”.

Cher last blessed Irish audiences during her ‘farewell’ tour ‘Living Proof’ in May 2004, when her gig at the Point Theatre was one of the 326 stops along the way.

In a career spanning over 50 years, the Goddess of Pop has won a Grammy, an Emmy, an Academy Award and three Golden Globes, and with over 100 million records sold worldwide, Cher is one of the best-selling music artists of all time. To date, she is the only recording artist to have a number-one single on a Billboard chart in six consecutive decades.

Outside of music, Cher has enjoyed a successful career on stage and screen. She made her Broadway debut in the 1976 play Come Back to the Five and Dime, Jimmy Dean, before starring in the films Silkwood, Mask and Moonstruck, for which she won the Oscar for Best Actress.

Cher has been a beloved gay icon for years, and outside of showbiz the legend herself has been a long-standing supporter of the LGBT+ community in her philanthropy and activism. In 1996, she hosted the American Foundation for AIDS Research Benefit alongside Elizabeth Taylor. Two years later, Cher received the GLAAD Vanguard Award for making a “significant difference in promoting equal rights for lesbians and gay men”.

Tickets for Cher’s Dublin date go on sale this Friday at 10 AM on ticketmaster.ie.
