Cher looks stunning for 'Today' show performance, reveals new tour to promote 26th album

With 26 studio albums under her belt, there's plenty of music to Cher.

The legendary rock diva took to the stage at the " Today" show Monday to promote her new album "Closer to the Truth."

The truth is that at 67 years old, Cher looked amazing as she sang her song " Woman's World," making this her second performance since her Farewell Tour ended in 2005. She made her official return to the stage June 18 on the season finale of "The Voice."

The Grammy Award-winner admitted she isn't a morning person, so when "Today" co-host Savannah Guthrie asked how she was feeling when the alarm went off Monday morning, Cher replied, "How can I get out of here?"

She then turned the question back on Guthrie.

"I thought, 'She does this all the time?' What kind of a social life do you have?"

Matt Lauer continued the conversation by pointing out Cher's Twitter admission that she was suffering from laryngitis over the weekend.


"My voice ... well ... it's like jumping out of a plane in a parachute your mom packed!!" she tweeted Sunday. "You just pray it opens."

Despite her concerns, Cher performed in front of screaming fans who undoubtedly adore her and were excited when she announced she'll soon be heading back out on the road for her "Dressed to Kill" tour.

Kicking off on March 22, 2014, in Phoenix, Cher will wrap her 49-city North American tour on July 11 in San Diego.

For her last tour, she performed a record-breaking 325 dates for 5.5 million fans.

While she loves performing in venues around the country, she explained on "Today" how touring is difficult.

"I understand why guys in bands tear up hotel rooms because it's a very lonely place," she said. "The only time you have fun is at the concert."

The "Believe" singer looked like she was having a lot of fun performing live Monday in New York City. However, it didn't take long before she was ready to get some shut eye.

"Wow!! I just woke up in the same clothes I was wearing this morning on TV," she tweeted Monday. "What's worse, I fell asleep in 37 pounds of makeup!"
