Cher has postponed her spring "Here We Go Again" tour due to concerns about the coronavirus spread, which includes concerts in Billings and in Casper, Wyoming.

The April 26 concert at MetraPark in Billings has been rescheduled to October 6. The Casper concert will be held on October 4.

“I’m heartbroken, but the health of my fans and my touring family comes first,” Cher said in a statement, according to Rolling Stone . “The shows have been really special but nothing is more important than everybody’s safety. I’m excited to see everyone when we’re back out on the road.”

No action is necessary for ticket holders to attend the fall concert. Refunds should be made at point of purchase, according to the magazine.

There are currently no confirmed cases of COVID-19 actually in Montana. Here is the latest update from the Montana Department of Public Health & Human Services as of Thursday morning:

  • Reported COVID-19 Cases in Montana: 1*

  • - Individuals who have completed monitoring process: 26
  • - Individuals who remain under monitoring: 4
  • Persons tested for CoVID-19: 34

The sole confirmed Montana case is a Lake County woman who is currently in Maryland. Health officials in Maryland say the woman was last in Montana in November 2019, has not returned to the state since that time, and was not in Montana during the 14-day incubation period. Despite the fact that the woman is not in Montana currently and has not been in Montana since she was exposed and tested positive, current CDC guidelines mandate that her case is considered to be a "Montana" case.
