Cher launched her Dressed to Kill Tour on March 22 in Phoenix, Ariz. amid endless applause and ovations except at point in the show when the pop diva told fans that D2K "is my farewell, farewell tour," which earned the night's only chorus of boos from fans.
According to a review posted on March 23 at Billboard.com, the Goddess of Pop overcame a number of opening night glitches to put on a spectacular opening show at Phoenix's US Airways Center, but despite the positive reception and huge box office success, the 67-year-old singer has decided her road days are truly done.
Taking a self-deprecating poke a her age, the "Believe" hitmaker told the audience, "I swear to God, this is my farewell, farewell tour. I'll be my mother if I do another concert."
Cher has been vocal with fans via her official Twitter and Facebook pages about her struggles in preparing the current tour, admitting that the demands of her tour were "so f**king hard!"
Although jokingly calling herself "the weak link of the evening," the Grammy winner overcame poor fitting costumes, a broken fingernail and forgotten song lyrics to deliver a eye and ear popping 20-song extravaganza.
Currently riding the highest charting album of her career and a near sold-out tour, it's hard to imagine D2K as Cher's 'final' farewell.
The AEG Live produced tour continues on March 24 in Houston, Texas at Toyota Center with the Canadian leg kicking off on April 7 at Toronto's Air Canada Centre.
