Cobie Smulders Pays Tribute to 'How I Met Your Mother' Alter Ego Robin Sparkles to Celebrate Canada Day

By Billboard

As she kicks off the first North American leg of the Here We Go Again Tour, Cher impacts the Hot Tours recap dated Feb. 23 with $9.2 million, according to figures reported to Billboard Boxscore.

All seven shows reported this week break the top 25 on the Current Boxscore chart, topped by her Jan. 19 performance at BB&T Center in Sunrise, Fla. (No. 4; $1.7 million; 13,774 tickets sold). Including the previously reported Jan. 23 show at the Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Fla., the North American leg has grossed $10.2 million and sold 88,171 tickets. In total, the Here We Go Again Tour has amassed $24.2 million and sold 203,947 tickets so far.

These dates follow 14 shows throughout Australia and New Zealand from Sept. 21-Oct. 21, 2018. It was on the other side of the globe that Cher maximized her touring potential, hitting a high point of $3.5 million and 28,812 tickets sold across three shows at Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena. These shows made the Goddess of Pop Australia’s seventh highest-grossing act of 2018, in addition to the $17.8 million grossed Stateside from her ongoing Classic Cher residency in Las Vegas and Oxon Hill, Md.

Cher continues to weave her residency with the Here We Go Again Tour, with nine final dates in Vegas from March 13-30 before returning to her touring production for much of 2019. This two-places-in-one strategy is natural for the chameleonic icon. After turning in a cameo in last summer’s blockbuster musical rom-com sequel Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, she released Dancing Queen, a collection of ABBA covers. The Here We Go Again Tour, named in conjunction with 2018’s ABBA takeover, mixes some of these new covers with Cher’s generation-spanning catalog.

The latest shows bring Cher's career total to $467 million and 5.4 million tickets sold.
