There’s no reason to “turn back time” if you’re a Cher fan on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

The Academy Award-winning singer, who also won a Grammy, an Emmy and three Golden Globes, returns to the the Coast for a Super Bowl Weekend show at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum.

Tickets to the Saturday, Feb. 2, 2019, show go on sale at 10 a.m. Sept. 14 at Ticketmaster.com. Pre-sale tickets will be available beginning at 10 a.m. on Sept. 12 to Citi cardmembers through Citi’s Private Pass program.

Cher kicks off her “Here We Go Again Tour” Sept. 26 in Australia. The U.S. portion of her tour begins Jan. 17 and music legend Nile Rodgers & Chic will be joining the tour.

Cher twice played Biloxi on her epic Farewell Tour in 2003 and 2004. Close to 10,000 fans crowded into the Coast Coliseum to see Cher on Oct. 18, 2003, on her first pass during her Farewell Tour that stretched from 2003-05. She returned less than a year later on Aug. 14, 2004.

Her career on stage and movies has spanned more than 50 years, including a role in the recent summer hit “Mama Mia: Here We Go Again.” Cher’s hits include “Strong Enough,” “I Found Someone,” “I Got You Babe,” with then-husband with Sonny Bono, and “If I Could Turn Back Time.”

This latest tour is the seventh for the 72 year old performer, known for her lavish costumes and elaborate shows. It’s in support of latest album “Dancing Queen,” which features her covering songs by the Swedish pop group ABBA. The album drops Sept. 28.

Cher’s concert will add to a packed Super Bowl weekend in South Mississippi. This will be the first time fans can legally bet on the big game in the state’s casinos, since legal sports betting started in Mississippi on Aug. 1.

Cher's first true home after her divorce from Sonny Bono is back on the market for $68 million. It is located in Beverly Hills. Photos courtesy TopTenRealEstateDeals.com.
