The 71-year-old was treated like royalty when she came to Sydney for Mardi Gras back in March, and has decided she needs to give her fans more.

"My visit to Sydney's Mardi Gras reminded me how unique and beautiful Australia is. It's been 13 years since I toured there so I thought 'let's do it one more time,'" she explained. The music queen, who has us all Moonstruck, will be playing in arenas across Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Newcastle, Adelaide and Perth.

You can bet she's going to get you on your feet!

And you can bet she'll keep it real.

The Academy Award-winner admitted she was wrong to take a selfie with Prime Minster Malcolm Turnbull, after fans explained that his plebiscite on same-sex marriage was harmful to the LGBT community.

"I had no idea who he was," Cher confessed of the selfie slip-up.

"First of all, I didn't know I was going to meet him, I had no idea what he looked like, he came up and introduced himself and said how fabulous the LGBT community are.

"How am I supposed to know? He said all the right words. Then I got such a backlash.

The last time we saw Cher tour our nation was back in 2005.

This time around, her 90-minute show will treat fans to her biggest bangers including Believe, If I Could Turn Back Time, Strong Enough and I Got You Babe.

Cher will kick off on Wednesday, September 26, in Newcastle.

For tickets, which go on sale on Friday, May 18 from 10am, head to livenation.com.au.
