Cher wrapped up two nights at London’s iconic O2 Arena on Monday night in epic style.
The living legend delivered a spectacularly camp trip down memory lane with a show-stopper of a show worthy of the history books.
Descending from the heavens on a glittering golden platform, the 73-year-old launched into her 2013 track Woman’s World.
Flanked by scantily Grecian-themed ripped men and women, Cher showed off her instantly recognisable vocals and her dancers cavorted around her.
Kicking off with no less than eight wig changes, the pop diva rocked a bright blue do to start the show and bold heeled boots to match.

After stripping down for a rendition of 1998 hit Believe, Cher halted the show to chat to fans for 12 minutes – playfully recalling the time she turned forty twice.
Appearing to host an impromptu An Evening With… session, the American starlet happily reminisced how she once bluntly told US chat-show host David Letterman she thought he was an 'a**h***' while on his show in 1986 – after getting his team to pay her outstanding hotel bill of £29,924.
Cher has retold the quirky tale countless times already during her time on the road, but in a nod to the UK, the music icon added in anecdotes about BBC legend, Graham Norton.

Never one to resist a catty swipe, the superstar said: "In America, we have a talk show host, his show is popular.
"He’s kind of like a nice Graham Norton."
Recalling her memories of the British chat-show legend, she continued: "I used to watch Graham.
"I have lived here in my life over the years and he used to be on a middle of the night sex show/game show."
Trailing off she added: "And then I saw him doing that kind of Irish dance in Father Ted and so I just loved him.
"Anyway, David Letterman had always wanted me to be on his show and I never wanted to be on it."
Throughout the evening Cher donned a range of typically racy bejewelled costumes.
From a plunging purple and black leotard for Burlesque to her infamous sheer If I Could Turn Back Time catsuit, the All Or Nothing singer oozed sex appeal and confidence as she strutted around the stage.
Making light of her age, the chart-topper joked when people clap she’s not sure if it’s because she is still alive or because she can still fit in her costumes.
Owning her advancing years, she quickly turned on her heels before boasting: "What’s your Grandma doing tonight?"
Thanks to her elaborate show consisting of aerial performances, a life-size ride on an elephant and copious amounts of sequins diamonds and lasers, the evening resembled a high-budget version of The Eurovision Song Contest.
But even with the over the top production, Cher’s star power and impressive vocals didn’t come close to being overshadowed.
Teaming her record-breaking back catalogue of hits with nostalgic clips from her career, at times it felt like Cher is on her final victory lap of the world.
However, with sell-out arena shows around the globe and a clear love for performing that burns brighter than ever don’t expect this pop legend to hang up her wigs and heels just yet.
