Cher will end her last international tour in Australia early next year.

The Grammy Award-winning singer, Academy Award-winning actress, Emmy Award-winning television star, Broadway performer and film director will perform shows in Melbourne, Adelaide, Sydney and Brisbane beginning on February 26.

The international tour, entitled The Farewell Tour (Never Can Say Goodbye), scheduled only 49 shows when it began in June 2002, but is now in its 27th month and about to perform its 250th show.

"My Australian shows will be very emotional because that's where it will end," Cher said.


Promoter Michael Coppel said the show was "stunningly spectacular, lavishly over the top and totally dazzling".
