Cher? Farewell? Can it be true? No — it's too horrible to be true. But hopefully this is just the first of many farewell tours for Cher, the indestructible pop dowager with the consonants-only vocal style and the timeless fashion chutzpah. On Farewell, she reprises "If I Could Turn Back Time" and "Believe," though, unfortunately, she snubs "We All Sleep Alone," the proudest moment of her all-too-brief Bon Jovi period. She opens with her version of U2's "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For," and wow — Bono is probably still hiding under the couch. From the devotional cheers of the crowd to the purple top hat she wears on the cover, Farewell Tour is so Cher it hurts. Damn it, Cher — we miss you already.
