Cher’s hugely successful Dressed To Kill Tour has provided a much need lift of her 2013 studio album Closer to the Truth to re-enter the Billboard 200 nearly a year after its original release. Originally debuted at No. 3 last September, Closer to the Truth provided the ageless diva her highest-charting solo album ever.

According to Billboard.com, the Goddess of Pop’s 25th studio album has enjoyed a jump in sales of a 125 percent, which has propelled it back onto the charts at No. 70. The sudden boost has been attributed to a recent e-mail reminder sent to fans who ordered album bundle packages when they purchased Cher D2K concert tickets. The concert ticket bundle package is a fairly recent marketing tool, which has been used with great success by other big name acts like Bon Jovi and Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers. Only albums that are redeemed by the consumer count as a sale, which also helps accounts for the belated sales leap.

Billboard recently predicted Cher’s D2K Tour is on its way to becoming the top grossing tour of 2014. The first leg of the ageless pop diva’s D2K North American tour ended July 11 and has already grossed nearly $55 million.

The “Believe” hitmaker extended her farewell run into November. Currently on hiatus, the next round of dates kick off Sept. 11 in Albany, New York, at Times Union Center and wrap up Nov. 3 in Wichita, Kansas, at Intrust Bank Arena. Canadian stops on the upcoming run include two new shows on Oct. 24 – Oct. 25 at Toronto’s Air Canada Centre. For more information, check out AXS.com.  Cher will continue her tour and take it worldwide in 2015.

Did you know? Cher sold out all 49 D2K shows on the initial run and grossed $54.9 million. The tour has attracted a total of 610,812 attendees thus far and earned its largest gross on May 25 in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand Garden Arena ($1.75 million).

Cher recently completed the first North American leg of her Dressed to Kill(D2K) tour, which is scheduled to resume in Albany, NY in mid-September and run through early November, encompassing a grand total of 74 shows. The tour features three DiGiCo SD7 consoles supplied by Black Box Music of Berlin, Germany, the live sound production provider for the entire tour, which are operated by Dave Bracey at front of house with Jon Lewis mixing monitors for Cher and Horst Hartmann supplying monitor mixes to the seven-piece band, dancers and technical crew.

Cher is the only artist to reach number one on the Billboard singles chart in each of the past six decades, and has sold over 100 million solo albums worldwide, plus more than 40 million records with husband-and-wife pop duo Sonny & Cher. The D2K tour, Cher’s eighth solo venture, reunites the three engineers, as well as system tech Ulf Oeckl, other crew members and some of the musicians, who all worked together on P!NK’s 140-plus-date The Truth About Love tour, which wrapped in early 2014.

Bracey, who made the transition from DiGiCo’s D5 to the SD7 for Massive Attack’s 2008 European tour, and whose resume includes extensive touring with The Cure, Robbie Williams and Björk, reports that he typically does a lot of programming in the console. With Cher going through nearly a dozen costumes during the 18-song show, the D2K tour features numerous film and video montages while the star is offstage changing. As Bracey reports, some of the audio for the archival footage is less than pristine: “You have to process it in a way that makes it intelligible in the room,” he says. “So every interlude between every song needs its own snapshot. Some of the archival movie clips have such disparate audio signatures that only some well-adjusted multi-band comp and a channel of dynamic EQ would make the whole segment intelligible. The SD7 offers so much that I am yet to use a plug-in.”

DiGiCo_CherD2K_SystemDiagram

The programmable features of the SD7 are part of the reason that Bracey has used the console exclusively for the past six years. “It’s infinitely controllable, but it never controls you or gets you into a situation where you’re too scared to call up the next snapshot. It makes life easy.” Like the D5 before it, he says, the SD7 allows the operator to update a single snapshot or apply changes across every snapshot, on the fly. “No other desk does it as well – that’s the reason I still use it. I see no reason to mix on any other console,” he says.

With Cher making so many costume changes it makes sense to have one mixer focusing solely on her needs, according to Jon Lewis, who has worked with AC/DC, David Gilmore, Paul McCartney and many others. “DiGiCo is my go-to board,” says Lewis, not least “for the support that you get from the guys, especially initially setting it up.”

The three SD7s are on an optical loop that allows the three engineers to share anything on the network, including video and communications. “That gives us the ability to throw something to each other at the click of a button, as opposed to having to go and find some XLR cables and patch it,” says Lewis. “If Dave suddenly needs her talkback mic, he can get it. If I need Dave’s effects returns, they’re there. It’s very quick and easy. And the ability to send video feeds around the system is great as well.”

“Even simple things like text chatting during the show,” Bracey chimes in. “If there’s something that’s not worth disturbing someone over, you just send them a message and they can answer in their own good time.”

Hartmann, whose credits include Kraftwerk, Scorpions and Sade, generates 12 stereo and 12 mono sends from his SD7. He manages all of the wireless equipment and crew communications while also feeding mixes to the musicians, who are all on in-ear monitors, several of them with separate ButtKicker low frequency effects feeds, and the dancers, via floor wedges and flown sidefills. “Every musician has a talkback mic, every crew member has a talkback mic,” says Hartmann, noting that all of the technicians are either under the stage or off to the sides. “There’s a lot of communication going on.” Since their sightlines are obscured, Hartmann and Lewis are able to follow the on-stage action on their consoles’ video screens.

At front of house, Bracey multitracks the entire show at 96 kHz to a laptop using DiGiGrid MGB coaxial MADI interfaces, both as an archive and as an aid to perfecting his mixes. “Two little boxes, a couple of Ethernet cables into an Ethernet bridge and into the computer – how easy is that? Most days I feel the need to listen back to it,” says Bracey. “It’s always very revealing.”

Cher World Tour

Cher was supposed to be retired, she tried to say goodbye with her Living Proof Farewell Tour in 2002. However the temptation of a $100 million + contract for Las Vegas was too tempting.  Now with a new Dressed To Kill Tour which has already reached most of America, Cher is planning to go abroad.

Mark Schulman, her longtime drummer, has a reasonable explanation to why Cher can’t say goodbye just yet.

“Here’s the chronology of that,” he said. “She really thought… she was old when she was in her 50s. Her biggest tour was in 1999, that’s when I joined the band. It went so well, then they’re like, well… let’s make another record. That was the first farewell tour, she thought, that’s it. Great, I’ll do this.”

chertickets

But when Vegas called, she couldn’t refuse the money.

“The problem with Vegas is it’s really ungratifying,” Schulman said. “When you’re used to touring with your own fans and getting all that love and energy from an audience that’s there to see you — when you go to Vegas it’s different, half the people are fans, half the people are high-rollers.”

Schulman drummed the first year of Cher’s three-year stint at Caesars Palace, and remembered one show with six Japanese businessmen in the front row: one bored, one asleep.

“I think she’s like, ‘I don’t want this to be my end experience playing.’ She’s in such good shape and why sit around doing frickin’ nothing if you’re Cher? Everything about her just screams 20 years younger than she is. She’s not over. There’s a lot of money to be made and a lot of people to make happy,” he said.

The Dressed To Kill tour, he added, has been in the works since 2010. And like her previous jaunts, it’s been a success already taking in over $50 million.

“This tour is outselling Lady Gaga’s tour,” he said. “She’s an awesome lady and an awesome talent and should still be out there doing what she’s doing.”

Cher has now revealed she is planning to take her Dressed To Kill Tour worldwide after her US shows end in April 2015.  Cher has plans to tour much of Europe (France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Hungary, Netherlands and the UK), South America including Brazil, Mexico and even as far as Australia and New Zealand. The news of a possible World Tour, Cher European Tour, South American Tour and Australian Tour has international fans excited.

Cher World Tour Dates and schedule to be released later this year for performances commencing mid 2015.

Cher’s Dressed to Kill Tour is on track to become of the most successful treks of 2014, according to Billboard Boxscore.

The diva’s tour has grossed a reported $54.9 million through the end of its first leg on July 11. A total of 610,812 attendees went to the 49 shows — all of which were sell-outs.

The show is on a break until Sept. 11, when its second leg launches in Albany, New York at the Times Union Center. The show will get some extra glitter from Emmy Award-winning fashion designer Bob Mackie, who will provide new costumes for Cher. (The pair have collaborated for decades, but he couldn’t design outfits for the first leg of the new tour due to time constraints.)

The Dressed to Kill Tour is Cher’s first tour since her lengthy Living Proof Farewell Tour, which played 325 shows around the globe from 2002 through 2005.

Billboard was on hand at multiple shows throughout the new tour’s first leg, including its recent stop at Staples Center in Los Angeles on July 7. The icon was in fine form, belting out familiar hits like “If I Could Turn Back Time,” “Believe” and “I Got You Babe,” while mixing in new material from her most recent album, “Closer to the Truth.”

Among the highlights in the show are a campy vampiric take on her new album’s “Dressed to Kill,” where she slinks around the stage before sinking her teeth into dancer Joe Slaughter. Also crowd-pleasing is her medley of her three No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 hits from the 1970s: “Gypsys, Tramps & Thieves,” “Dark Lady” and “Half-Breed.” The show ends with Cher literally flying above the crowd, singing her top 20 Adult Contemporary chart hit, “I Hope You Find It.”

A special note should also be made of Cher’s exceptionally bendy aerialists Sagiv Ben Binyamin and Maximiliano Torandell, not to mention her strong backing vocalists Stacy Campbell and Nikki Tillman.

The Dressed to Kill Tour is promoted by Marshall Arts USA and saw its (so far) largest gross earned by a May 25 visit to the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas ($1.75 million). The most-attended show, through the July 11 engagement, was its May 10 concert at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey, where 14,893 attendees were in the house.
