Cher's hugely successful Dressed To Kill has been playing to sold out arenas across Canada and the U.S. and is currently on its way to becoming the top grossing tour of 2014 so far. The first leg of the ageless pop diva's D2K North American tour ended July 11 and has already grossed nearly $55 million.
According to Billboard Boxscore statistics posted on July 15 at Billboard.biz.com, the Goddess of Pop sold out all 49 shows on the initial run and grossed $54.9 million. The tour has packed in a total of 610,812 attendees thus far and Billboard predicts that D2K will rank among the top grossing tours of 2014.
