Cher on Dressed to Kill Tour Hits Fort Lauderdale

Do you believe in Cher after Cher?

This "Half-Breed"-singing full on goddess may have retired a decade ago, but no one's confused. We always want more.

And the gay gods above have granted us the regift of Cher. She's heading to BB&T Center next May on her Dressed to Kill tour. We're really hoping that BroCo turns out in style for this monumental event. The far-off date gives all you weirdos time to grow out your long locks, tone those tanned thighs, and plan your most Cher-ific ensemble.

Let's take a short saunter down Cher fashion memory lane to offer some style inspiration for the big day.


She looks a little like a member of the Village People, but no one, and we mean no one, has ever been able to rock a mid-drift like Cher.

"Gypsies, Tramps, and Thieves"

Cher's a Cherokee, now she's a gypsy. So oppressed! We'd like to see some of y'all pulling off that hair, the blue eye shadow, and those coral earrings at the concert.


Any attempt to try and emulate Cher's looks in this film will surely fail. However, if you camp it up, you may be able to get away with wearing a mermaid tail.

"If I Could Turn Back Time"

You dress up as one of the sailors, and your boyfriend throws on a thong and a big ol' frizzy haired wig and, bam, you've turned back time.


There is no movie better than this. And Cher, post or pre makeover, is magnificent. Again, your life partner can get all Nicolas Cage and you can yell at him or her, over and over, "You are a wolf!"


Those who frowned on this Auto-Tune jam in the '90s better not be jamming to T-Pain in the aughts. A quick trip to Party City will have you whipping this look up in a jiffy.

"Strong Enough"

She is mesmerizing, isn't she?

Tickets haven't gone on sale yet, but surely they well sell out. Cher. 7:30 p.m., May 17, at BB&T Center, One Panther Parkway, Sunrise. Visit thebbtcenter.com.
