Cher has announced her first UK live dates in 14 years.

The legendary pop diva will play five arena concerts in October 2019, beginning with two headline slots at London's O2 Arena on October 20 and 21. The Turn Back Time singer will then perform at Manchester Arena on October 24, Birmingham Arena on October 26, and The SSE Hydro in Glasgow on October 28, before rounding out the tour on October 30 at Leeds' First Direct Arena.

Tickets will go on sale on Friday 14 December at 10am.

"I'm very excited to bring this show to the UK," Cher commented. "It was the first country to embrace Sonny & Cher, and its where we created and had our first success with Believe. It's really my second home."

Cher will play 50 years of classic hit singles, as well as ABBA covers from her latest album Dancing Queen, her highest charting set in 26 years. Peaking at Number 2, she was held off the top spot by Sir Rod Stewart in the first time ever that the Top 2 was occupied by two artists over the age of 70.

Cher recently confirmed that a new collection of ABBA covers will be released in 2019.
