Cher has postponed the start of the second leg of her Dressed to Kill Tour in Albany, New York and Manchester, New Hampshire, due to a viral infection.

The Albany concert has been moved to Oct. 6 and the Manchester tour date to Oct. 7, according to The Associated Press. Cher will kick off this portion of her tour Sept. 15 in Allentown, Pennsylvania, at the PPL Center.

The entertainer's tour schedule will hit the fast track next week, with Cher performing at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, on Sept. 17; Madison Square Garden in New York on Sept. 19-20; Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, New York, on Sept. 22, and the Bryce Jordan Center in University Park, Pennsylvania, on Sept. 24.

She will wrap up her September run at Boston's TD Garden on Sept. 26, Hartford's XL Center on Sept. 27, and the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C., on Sept. 29. Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo will also be appearing in concert with Cher.

"Dressed to Kill, the star's first tour since her long-running farewell tour that ended in 2005, opened March 22 in Phoenix and has played 49 shows already," wrote E! News' Kaitlyn Durocher. "The star's latest album, 2013's 'Closer to the Truth' debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard pop charts. ... The pop star tweeted 'Got to go sing' on Sept. 6 and it's safe to say she will be doing everything she can to get healthy in time for her loyal fans."

Billboard magazine's Boxscore reported in July that Cher's tour had already grossed $54.9 million as of July 11, the end of its first leg. Billboard said the tour had attracted more than 610,000 people in 49 dates, all sellouts, demonstrating the drawing power Cher still commands.

Billboard said Emmy Award-winning fashion designer Bob Mackie was set to design new costumes for the singer during the second leg of the tour.

"The icon was in fine form, belting out familiar hits like 'If I Could Turn Back Time,' 'Believe' and 'I Got You Babe,' while mixing in new material from her most recent album, 'Closer to the Truth,'" wrote Billboard's Keith Caulfield about Cher's July's performance at Los Angeles' Staple Center.
