Cher Extends North American 'Dressed To Kill Tour'

Singer Cher has added five more US dates to her current North American tour.

The movie, music and fashion icon began her current critically-acclaimed and hugely-successful 'Dressed To Kill Tour' in March this year and then wrapped up its first leg in July. The 68-year-old will resume the tour this month, with its second leg beginning on 11 September.

Prior to today, it was believed that the tour's second leg would climax on 3 November. However, news has just arrived that due to her having so much "fun" on the tour, five more dates have been added to the end of its second leg - which will now end on 19 November.

The superstar tweeted, "Having too much fun to stop now - new D2K Tour dates!", alongside a poster (below) which showcases the freshly-announced concerts' whereabouts and dates:

  • Lubbock, Texas on 9 November
  • Austin, Texas on 11 November
  • Corpus Christi, Texas on 13 November
  • Bossier, Los Angeles on 15 November
  • Charleston, South Carolina on 19 November
