Cher Confirmed To Headline 2018 Sydney Mardi Gras


International superstar Cher will perform at Sydney’s annual Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras in March 2018, with the state government confirming one of the city’s worst kept secrets.

The 71-year-old hinted she was coming Down Under in a cryptic emoji-laden tweet in December: “OK….. YOU BOYS KNOW WHERE I’LL IN MARCH… #PutSomeShrimpOmTheBar[bie]”.

The all-night after party at Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion sold out quickly after that tweet, with tickets going for as much as $250.

The NSW government on Friday announced Cher had been locked into performing at the Mardi Gras Party, when the city marks the annual parade’s 40th anniversary. It will be the first since same-sex marriage was legalised in Australia.

“When it comes to international recording artists, they don’t get much bigger than Cher and as one of the LGBTQI community’s most vocal advocates, she is the perfect person to help celebrate Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras,” Minister for the Arts Don Harwin said in a statement.

Mardi Gras creative director Greg Clarke was excited about the official announcement when speaking to ABC Radio Sydney this morning, promising an amazing show.

“These things do take time and a lot of negotiation, and so it’s been a pretty rollercoaster ride over the last couple of months, but we can definitely [say], it’s official and Cher is coming,” he said.

He said Cher would be a fitting star for the 40th anniversary of the Mardi Gras.

    Great, but I hoped for a new album she had promised. I am so sorry to say this, she´s just Trump obsessed.

    She will now go into her twilight years bitching and moaning about the Trumps. Donald could be president till Cher is nearly 80 and then God knows maybe Ivanka will follow. She is so obsessed about them she will croak over the stress.

    Cher has lost her mind over Trump… get a grip so much more to life than banging on about him.

      Maybe she actually cares about what he is doing and the effect some of his change actually make on people. It always easy to say there’s more to bang on about when things don’t affect you.
