Cher is coming back to Vegas after all.
The 62-year-old pop diva, who canceled several September performances due to illness, then erased the rest of her 2008 calendar due to "asthma-related bronchitis," has announced 35 new dates for 2009. "Believe"-ers can catch her 90-minute act at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace from February 21 through March 21 and April 25 through May 24.
Tickets are $95, $140, $175 and $250, and go on sale on Monday, November 3 at 731-7110, www.ticketmaster.com, and Cher will coincidentally appear on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” that same day. (Here's Ellen rocking a Cher impression on her show.)
During her downtime, Cher has been stumping for Barack Obama -- on the radio. "I called radio stations in swing states like Indiana, Iowa and Florida to tell people to go out and vote," she said at the opening of a Beverly Hills restaurant last week. "I wanted to call the states he needs the votes in most. It was interesting because the stations wanted to talk about music, and I wanted to talk about politics!"
