22 MU­SIC: “AL­BUM OF THE YEAR!”

DNA Magazine - - CONTENT #225 -

It’s cer­tainly been a good year for Cher – she didn’t die and she ap­peared in Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, which turned out to be not just a hoot, but a stonk­ing hit. Spring­board­ing from her suc­cess trans­form­ing ABBA’s Fer­nando into a new drag clas­sic, liv­ing le­gend Cher de­cided the time was right to rip through the Swedish su­per­group’s back cat­a­logue for a whole al­bum. Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Mid­night) has al­ready set the high-camp tone – ’70 and ’80s ABBA hits done ’90s Be­lieve style. It’s all per­fect tim­ing, too, for her Aus­tralian tour right about now. Then, in De­cem­ber the Broad­way mu­si­cal of her life, The Cher Show, de­buts. You can’t keep a good danc­ing pen­sioner (queen) down.
