Cher Announces Grand Rapids Concert Postponement for D2K Tour Because of Illness
Cher is on the mend from her recent illness but her doctors have advised her recovery from a virus will take longer than previously expected.
The rescheduled Dressed to Kill (D2K) Tour dates, including a new date for the Grand Rapids concert, is expected to be announced next week.
Cher has completed 49 performances on the tour, which will now resume Nov. 9 in Lubbock, Texas. She is touring with Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo.
“The initial viral infection affected her kidneys, which has delayed Cher’s recovery time," her spokesperson said in a statement. "Cher’s doctors have advised her to extend her rest period and expect her to make a full recovery."
In a statement, Cher said: “I want to thank all my fans for their good wishes, patience and prayers. The doctors assure me that I will be totally well by November 9th and ready to perform my show. I’m truly sorry that I can’t get on the stage sooner.
"But the good news is that I’m on the mend and feeling better every day. I can’t wait to see you all. I’ll be ‘Dressed to Kill’ in my unbelievable new Bob Mackie gowns and promise you an unforgettable night.”
Ticket-holders for the now-to-be-rescheduled Van Andel Arena performance are encourage to hang on to them for the new concert date. However, patrons can get a refund on the tickets where they purchased them.
