Cher set to play in Ireland for first time in over 15 years

Would you beelieeve it!

Pop icon Cher is coming to Ireland for her first gig on the Emerald Isle in over 15 years.

The Oscar-winning singer will play Dublin's 3Arena on November 1st, 2019, as part of her Here We Go Again World Tour.

It comes as part of the ongoing Cher-naissance, which started when the veteran star stole the show in the hit ABBA-inspired musical film sequel Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again.

She quickly followed that up with the release of a new album of ABBA cover versions titled Dancing Queen - the 26th album of her career.

The concert will represent the first time Cher has performed in Ireland in over a decade and a half.

The last time she wowed the crowds over in the Emerald Isle was way back in May 2004.

Back then she Cher performed at the old Point Theatre as part of a 326-night tour titled Living Proof: The Farewell Tour.

The farewell didn't last though with Cher back on the road for a global tour that will take in London, Manchester, Birmingham, Leeds and Glasgow before hoping over to Dublin.

One of the most successful musical artists of all time, Cher has sold over 100 million records worldwide in her long and varied career.

The trip to Ireland will also offer a rare chance for the singer to get in touch with her Irish roots.

Cher has Irish ancestry on her mother's side of the family.
