WHAT: CHER, Here we go again
WHEN: Friday, September 28, 2018
WHERE: Brisbane Entertainment Centre
Who doesn’t love Cher?
She is the ultimate superstar, whose talent and persona shine beyond the universe.
Up there with the greats, Tina Turner and Aretha Franklin, she shimmers like a full moon on the harbour and exudes a powerful ethereal energy.
A goddess, her bold beautiful voice is so distinctive it is instantly recognisable (unlike the strangled kitten whines emitted by so many singers today).
And can that woman wear a body suit or what?
Stunning and ageless, Cher is set to grace the stage of the Brisbane Entertainment Centre in September.
And we will bow down before her Good Graciousness as she performs hits from an extensive back catalogue that includes Believe (an anthem about getting over it and on with life), If I Could Turn Back Time, Dark Lady and Gypsies Tramps and Thieves.
It is incredible to think Cher has been making waves for six decades and has sold a formidable 100-million records.
Her Australian shows are bound to be spectacular – it is the first time in 13 years that she has ventured down under for a full tour schedule. And it will come soon after the cinema release of the Mamma Mia sequel (Here we go again) in which Cher appears as the grandmother!
Tickets are priced from C reserve $122.15 though to B reserve $203.60 and A reserve (do you wanna go there?) $305.45.
We’re talking LEGEND. We’re talking a NIGHT TO REMEMBER.
