Following her role in the recently released film, “Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again,” the multi-award winning singer and actress will be touring the U.S. for the first time in five years.

Cher is expected to perform many of the hits from a career that started with the 1965 hit, “I Got You Babe,” as half of the duo Sonny and Cher.

She also will sing songs from her upcoming “Dancing Queen” album – a tribute to Swedish pop group ABBA, whose music inspired the “Mamma Mia” films and musical. With a Sept. 28 release date, the album is currently available for pre-order.

The 72-year-old Oscar, Emmy, Cannes Film Festival and Grammy Award-winning icon is scheduled to be honored at the Kennedy Center later this year. She is also co-producer of “The Cher Show,” a musical opening Dec. 3 on Broadway that is currently touring Australia and New Zealand.

Cher also is doing a series of residencies in Las Vegas.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
