Cher: "My gay following has kept me alive when no one else came to see me!"

The diva is getting ready to tour, promoting her new album, Closer to the Truth (her first in over a decade), at  age 67. The tour, however, is entitled the Dressed to Kill Tour. We're certain Cher will live up to the title -- and the hype.

The tour will kick off in Phoenix, AZ, then move on to LA, Vegas, Boston & NYC. She'll be performing in Brooklyn on Friday, May 9, just four days prior to my birthday. So, who's taking me?

"My gay following kept me alive when no one else came to see me" is what Cher admitted to CBS Sunday Morning.  She expects her gay fans to be in force at her upcoming concert appearances. We're sure she won't be disappointed.

As for turning down performing at the opening of the Russian Winter Olympics, she quipped to CBS, "You can't cross that line. The 'gay line'. You just can't."

Hear that, Elton?

At 67, Cher will once again turn back time and hit the road.
The gay icon announced today (23 September) that she will be kicking off her Dressed to Kill tour in March with a concert in Phoenix, Arizona, and will go on to perform in such cities as Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Boston and New York City.
The tour announcement comes in conjunction with the release on Tuesday (24 September) of Cher's first new album in 11 years titled Closer to the Truth.
Cher expects to see plenty of her gay fans at the various stops.
'My gay following has kept me – in the old days – alive when no one else came to see me. I’ve had really bad times,’ Cher said Sunday (22 September) in an interview with the show CBS Sunday Morning.
That's why she did not hesitate to turn down the chance to perform during the opening ceremonies of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, where there are anti-gay laws.
'You can’t cross that line – the gay line,' she said. 'You just can’t.'
Dressed to Kill is scheduled to have more than 40 stops and run through July. But Cher's previous tour, The Farewell Tour, ended up lasting three years and was one of the most successful tours ever by a solo artist. It finally ended in 2005 after playing for a record-breaking 325 dates and being seen by over 5.5 million people.
'If I don't try it now, if I wait, it'll be too late,' says Cher who will be 68 when she launches the tour. 'I won't be able to tour after this.'
