Is Cher thinking about tour retirement? The 67-year-old star is currently heading out on a North America tour and while she is used to the hustle and bustle of touring and performing at different venues, she's getting older and things aren't as easy as when she was younger. On Oct. 25, MSN reported that Cher has dropped hints that she might stop touring after this.
"It's 'You'd better do it now 'cause you are never going to do it again.' I love the shows but hate the road. It's lonely and you never know where you are. It's no fun and very isolating. The only thing that saves it is when you go out on stage. I'm not sure how long I can do it. I am 67, and I'm not going to do it if I don't do it now," Cher said.
Cher hasn't announced a tour retirement but it seems obvious that going on tour is becoming more difficult for her. In 2004, Cher hit the road on her "Farewell Tour" and the point of that tour was a chance for Cher to "say goodbye" ... but now she is back, giving it another go. While fans would love to see pop stars like Cher again and again, touring is exhausting. So why did Cher come back?
In case you haven't looked into tickets, the prices might explain why. To see her in Boston, ticket prices (for decent seats) were being sold for almost $200 a piece.
If Cher decided on tour retirement maybe a residency at Vegas would an option.
