Cher Announces New Tour Dates, Backs Hillary Clinton: ‘She Will Rise To That Occasion’

Legendary singer/actress Cher is back, set to return to the stage in 2017 with newly-announced tour dates in Las Vegas and Washington, D.C..

In honour of the big news, appearing on the “Today Show” on Wednesday Cher reflects on her years in the spotlight and sharing her strong views on the heated U.S. election.

The iconic singer has become known for her outspoken and politically-driven views — often taking to Twitter to voice her opinion — and she didn’t hold back during this morning’s appearance.

The “Strong Enough” singer reiterates her support for Hillary Clinton while sitting down with NBC News correspondent Maria Shriver.

Before hitting the road on her newly-announced “Classic Cher” tour, the 70-year-old will be pounding the pavement on behalf of Clinton in the weeks leading up to the election. “She’s done some things that I’m sure she wishes she hadn’t done. And she’s done things — I can’t back every play,” Cher tells Shriver. “But I think that if she has the chance to be a great president, she will rise to that occasion.”

As for Clinton’s Republican opponent, Donald Trump, Cher expresses her frustration over his controversial agenda and his legion of fans. “I feel like I’m yelling ‘fire,’ and no one is listening… I care about the country, and I know that the people that are following Trump, they care about the country, too,” she adds. “But I don’t think it’s the same country I care about.”
