THE CHER SHOW's UK and Ireland tour opened this week at Curve Leicester! Cher takes the audience by the hand and introduces them to the influential people in her life, from her mother and Sonny Bono, to Bob Mackie. It shows how she battles the men who underestimated her, fought the conventions and, above all, was a trailblazer for independence.
