SHARE Cher cancels concerts to recover from infection

A kidney problem has forced Cher to cancel her winter tour, her spokeswoman announced Thursday.

The statement said doctors advised the 68-year-old pop legend to avoid performing to ensure total recovery from the infection. Among the canceled shows on the “Dressed to Kill” tour: Jan. 21 at Chicago’s United Center.

“I am totally devastated,” Cher said in the press statement. “Nothing like this has ever happened to me.  I cannot apologize enough to all the fans who bought tickets.”

Ticket holders may obtain a refund at point of purchase.

Cher has been battling the infection since September and was wearing a 24-hour monitor to detect irregular heartbeats. “She continues her excellent recovery from the viral infection she had,” her rep told Closer Weekly earlier this month. “The doctors are very pleased with how well Cher‘s doing.”
