Denver, CO (PRWEB) September 27, 2013
Known for her distinctive contralto, Cher became popular in 1965 as part of the folk rock duo Sonny & Cher. Over the years, she has also become known for her screen talents, as well as her daring fashion statements ranging from the shocking to the sublime.
Today, as one of the best-selling musical talents of all time, she is considered the Goddess of Pop with more than 100 million solo albums and 40 million Sonny & Cher records sold worldwide. Plus, the California-born star is the only artist to have a Number One single on a Billboard chart in each of the past six decades.
Now, at age 67, Cher recently announced her first road trip since her 2005 Farewell Tour. Dubbed Dressed to Kill, her latest effort is in support of her just-released 26th album Closer to the Truth. The tour is named after one of the cuts.
The 49-date trek kicks off at the U.S. Airways Center in Phoenix, Arizona on March 22 and wraps at the Valley View Casino Center in San Diego, California on July 11, 2014.

After achieving popularity in 1965, Cher became successful as a solo artist with million-selling singles such as "Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)", "Gypsys, Tramps & Thieves", and "Half-Breed" – songs that dealt with subjects rarely addressed in popular music.
In the 1970s, she became a television personality with her shows The Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour and Cher, both of which were huge hits. After Cher and Sonny divorced in 1975, Cher experimented with various musical styles, including disco and new wave, before becoming a successful live act in Las Vegas.
In the early 1980s, Cher made her Broadway debut and starred in the film Silkwood, which earned her a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in 1983. In the following years, she starred in films such as Mask, The Witches of Eastwick, and Moonstruck, for which she won the Academy Award for Best Actress in 1988. She made her directing debut in the 1996 film If These Walls Could Talk.
At the same time, she established herself as a rock singer by releasing platinum albums such as Heart of Stone (1989) and successful singles such as "I Found Someone" and "If I Could Turn Back Time".
Over the last two decades, Cher continued to experiment with musical styles, including R&B and dance. She hit a new high in 1998 with "Believe", which featured the pioneering use of Auto-Tune, also known as the "Cher effect".
Cher's last outing, The Farewell Tour, renamed The Never Can Say Goodbye Tour before its long run ended, played a record-breaking 325 dates for 5.5 million fans. In 2008, she signed a $60 million per-year deal to headline at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas for three years. (Source: usatoday.com 9/23/13)
Cher has won an Academy Award, a Grammy Award, an Emmy Award, three Golden Globe Awards, and the Best Actress Award at the Cannes Film Festival, among numerous other honors. Her other ventures have included fashion designing, writing books and managing the film production company Isis.
