After performing 49 concerts, pop diva Cher canceled the rest of her "Dressed to Kill" tour as the 68-year-old singer and actress continues to battle a viral infection.

Cher had taken a break earlier from the tour she began in March, according to Variety. She had already performed nearly 50 shows, but in September had to cancel dates because of the infection, noted the newspaper.

The canceled dates include concerts in Washington, D.C.'s Verizon Center on Dec. 6; a Dec. 15 date in Madison Square Garden; Boston's TD Garden in Jan. 7; Chicago's United Center on Jan. 21 and the North Dakota's Fargodome on Feb. 4, according to KSN-TV.

"I'm totally devastated," Cher said in a statement on her website. "Nothing like this has ever happened to me. I cannot apologize enough to all the fans who bought tickets. I'm so proud of this show. It is my best ever. I sincerely hope that we can come back again next and finish what we started."

Cher also expressed her disappointment in two tweets that were posted to her Twitter account on Thursday.


Before the illness, Cher's tour had been flying high, generating $54.9 million by the end of the first leg on July 11, according to Billboard magazine's Boxscore. The tour had attracted more than 610,000 people in 49 dates, all sellouts, noted Billboard.
