Cher's mystery illness

Cher has sparked concerns over her health after cancelling her sixth Las Vegas show in less than a month.

The 62-year-old singer - whose residency at the Las Vegas' Caesars Palace was due to end last weekend - cancelled her performances on Saturday and Sunday due to "asthma- related bronchitis".

Last week, Cher's publicist Liz Rosenberg revealed the star was suffering from "Vegas throat", the nickname for when the throat is affected by the desert city's dry air.

However, the venue had hoped future singers wouldn't be affected by the condition after a specialist giant humidifier was installed for Celine Dion's residency.

A statement from Caesars Palace read: "Cher looks forward to her return to The Colosseum early next year with performances to be announced soon."

The news comes after Cher cancelled four more shows earlier this year.

Rosenberg denied claims the singer is suffering from chronic abdominal issues, and refused to comment on rumours the condition is caused by Cher's breakup from motorcyclist Tim Medvetz.
