The iconic pop diva had 28 dates remaining on her North American tour, but doctors have advised her not to go ahead with the rest of her shows so she can fully recover from an infection that had “affected her kidney function”.
Addressing the cancelled shows, Cher admitted that she was “devastated”, but vowed that she would try and reschedule the shows, vowing: “I sincerely hope that we can come back again next year and finish what we started.
"I am totally devastated. Nothing like this has ever happened to me."
And because the only thing Cher loves more than wigs and polishing her Academy Award is a good Twitter rant, she took to social media in the early hours of Friday morning to echo her disappointment about not being able to perform.
She apologised profusely to the fans who had bought tickets to see her, claiming she felt “gut wrenching sadness” about the cancelled dates.

Let’s hope she can show that infection who’s boss and get back on the road in 2015, after some much-needed rest.
Cher kicked off her ‘Dressed To Kill’ tour back in May, performing her classic hits as well as tracks from her latest release, ‘Closer To The Truth’.
Of course, it didn’t take her long to hit the headlines over her shocking on-stage outfit choices, which included an homage to her ‘If I Could Turn Back Time’ music video, and a nude-look bodysuit.
