Superstar Cher has revealed which song will serve as the opening song of her upcoming tour.
Fans of the legendary performer will know that Cher has performed U2's 'I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For' as the opening song during her last three concert tours (namely her 'Love Hurts Tour', 'Do You Believe Tour' and 'Living Proof: The Farewell Tour'), as well as her 2008-2011 series of concerts in Las Vegas, titled 'Cher at The Colosseum'.
For those of you that were hoping for something a little more fresh as the opening song to the new tour, you're going to be pleased.
Luckily, Cher answered one Twitter follower who asked her about the first song to be performed during the concerts in her recently-confirmed upcoming tour. She replied, "Okay, one leak! It's [going to be a] remix of 'You Haven't Seen The Last of Me'. "
In exchange for the U2 cover, Cher will sing her ballad 'You Haven't Seen The Last of Me' from the 2010 movie 'Burlesque'. The song, which was featured on the Gold-certified soundtrack to the movie, reached number one on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Songs chart (in remixed form) in January 2011. The song also won a Golden Globe for Best Original Song that year and went on to be nominated for several other film and music awards.
Whilst many Cher fans prefer the original ballad version of 'You Haven't Seen The Last of Me' that's seen in the movie, others prefer the remixed version that hit the top spot on the aforementioned Billboard chart. Therefore, hopefully her rendition during the tour will be a merge of the two, or a meeting in the middle, to please everyone.
Cher has previously mentioned that her other song from the film, titled 'Welcome To Burlesque', will also be included in the tour.
