It’s always super awkward when you throw yourself a going-away party and then you never actually leave town. When pop superstar and fashion icon Cher said farewell to touring in 2005 with her “Living Proof: The Farewell Tour,” we all donned our sequined unitards, clutched our favorite wigs, and tearfully blasted “Believe” on repeat with The Witches of Eastwick screening in the background. But much like that strange black hair that grows out of your left nipple, she’s come back unexpectedly for one more go around. The one-and-only Cher is now on a nationwide, 49-city jaunt with her “Dressed to Kill Tour,” serenading the world with songs from her latest Closer to the Truth album along with songs from her past, including a duet with video of Sonny singing “I Got You Babe.” Unlike her previous tour, though, this time she stays true to the title’s message—the show’s costumes are to die for.
