Cher billed her last tour as a “farewell” but soon had a change of heart, renaming it “Never Can Say Goodbye.” This year’s D2K (“Dressed to Kill”) tour features the usual array of outlandish costumes — Aztec warrior princess, Space Age rainbow — and familiar hits, from “I’ve Got You Babe” to “I Hope You Find It,” as well as songs from last year’s “Closer to the Truth.”
Opener Cyndi Lauper could be more than half the fun. Still cheeky as the afternoon Grammy Awards show emcee (“This is the year we all got to say ‘Pussy Riot,'” she declared. “How cool is that?”), Lauper has not only sold 50 million records and won a Grammy, she earned a Tony for her score of “Kinky Boots.”
By coincidence, Cher’s here during Pride Week, which should add some zing to the proceedings.
