Cher is coming back to play Raleigh’s PNC Arena, four years after playing there on what she insisted at the time was a farewell tour.

Regardless, she’ll perform in Raleigh on Jan. 27, followed by Jan. 29 at Charlotte’s Spectrum Center. The general-public on-sale date for tickets is Friday, Sept. 14, at 10 a.m. at the PNC box office, Ticketmaster.com or by phone at 800-745-3000.

Cher first played a “farewell tour” show at PNC in 2000, when it was the Entertainment & Sports Arena. Nevertheless, she returned in 2014 on what was again billed as a last go-round.

“This is it, it really is,” she said in a News & Observer interview. “I’m not coming back at age 75, and you have to know when it’s time to go. This show would kill a girl of 20; it’s rough and it’s hard, and it has me doing three shows in four days.”

Since Cher is just 72, that must mean she’s got three more years.
