By Nahrain John @karryontravel12 Jan 2018Are you ‘Strong Enough’ to handle this epic news?! Well, don’t worry if you’re not because ‘I Got You Babe’ if you think you’ll pass out… or maybe just take a seat before you keep reading. Cher wasn’t lying when she said (belted out) ‘You Haven’t Seen the Last of Me’ in 2010’s Burlesque, because she’s returning to Australia for the first time in 28 years to headline the 2018 Mardi Gras Party. Can’t deal. Thanks Cher! If you ‘Believe’ it hard enough, it’ll happen and it’s officially been confirmed that the Goddess of Pop, queen of string/stocking/biker onesies and one of the music industry’s first feminists is headed Down Under! ‘Gypsies, tramps & thieves’ from around Australia (and the world) will join the LGBTI community in the city of Sydney in March to be part of the historic event, not only to see she-who-reigns perform but to celebrate 40 years of this incredible and inclusive celebration. If you don’t want to ‘Walk Alone’ as the only person who didn’t get a ticket to The Party, then be prepared because a strictly limited number of tickets will go on sale on 15 January at 10am AEDT for existing Mardi Gras members only. Existing Mardi Gras members will have exclusive access to purchase an additional two full price tickets over a 48 hour period or until sold out. The final release tickets for the general public will be on sale 10am AEDT Wednesday 17 January. Don’t you wish you could ‘Turn Back Time’ and become a member? Cher will also be featured in the official 2018 Mardi Gras Parade television broadcast on SBS on Sunday 4 March. The 2018 Mardi Gras Parade: Full Live Stream will be available Saturday 3 March at 7.00pm on SBS On Demand.
