It’s been announced Cher will perform at this year’s New York Pride ‘Dance on the Pier’ party on Sunday 30 June on Hudson River Park’s Pier 26.

The 67-year-old pop icon will perform her new single ‘Woman’s World’ from her forthcoming ‘Closer to the Truth’ album, which is due out in September, along with several of her classic hits.

“NYC Pride is thrilled to welcome Cher to the stage of this year’s Dance on the Pier! Her performance will be one of the most memorable in the history of this world-class party”, said Chris Frederick, Managing Director of NYC Pride. 

He added: “Now in its 27th year, the Dance on the Pier continues a proud tradition of partnering with all-star talent to create a high-quality event that raises funds to support local LGBT non-profits and New York City’s annual Pride festivities.” 

Artists such as Whitney Houston, Jennifer Lopez, Janet Jackson, Jennifer Hudson and Cyndi Lauper have taken part in previous years.
