What Does The Future Hold For Cher After Her 'Dressed To Kill Tour'?
Cher's 'Dressed To Kill Tour' is up and running and is getting rave reviews from both fans and critics. The 'Mermaids' actress typed up a message of thanks to her work crew on Twitter: "I want to thank my entire work crew and everyone involved with my show. Everyone has gone way beyond what's possible. They are the best".
Cher - who planned to retire from touring with 2005's 'The Farewell Tour' - then went on to thank her fans (nicknamed "Cher Crew") for their love and understanding during the long wait of her latest album and for their encouragement for her current curtain call tour, "Sending Cher Crew much love and thank them for love and patience during recording of 'Closer To The Truth' and encouragement for my farewell(!) farewell tour!!"
During the Twitter session, held in the last couple of hours, Cher was asked by one fan as to what her plans are for when the 49-date tour wraps up in July - she answered, "Many things I want to do but this is last farewell tour. I'm proud that the show has been received so well but must leave on top of my game."
Cher has been performing concerts since about 1964. Back then, she was one half of duo Caeasar & Cleo and performed mostly covers. Of course, the act was renamed Sonny & Cher, and got their own catalogue of hits to sing. The duo scored their début Billboard 200 entry in August 1965. If Cher releases an album in August next year - or sometime later - she'll be one of just a few acts to have a 50-year span of Billboard 200 entries.
"Would you ever release another album?" asked one fan. "I still love to sing, films, writing, produce, direct, maybe TV. Could teach. Who knows... Rest? Naw"
But rest, in the form of bubble baths, is exactly what the age-defying diva is getting up to after the hard work she's putting into - and behind the scenes of - her current concerts. She tweeted, along with the picture, right, "Jumped out of clothes after show... And jumped into hot bubble and Epsom Salts bath and sank down to chin. Ahh!"
Cher's next 'Dressed To Kill tour' outing is in Dallas, Texas in less than 24-hours.
