If you had your ticket ready and couldn't wait to see Cher perform during her Dressed to Kill tour, you're about to be extremely disappointed: The singer has been forced to cancel her remaining tour dates.

Cher reveals she is "really not a Cher fan"

The "You Haven't Seen the Last of Me" singer is suffering from a viral infection and doctors have advised her that the only way to make a full recovery is if she gets more rest. Cher has been battling this viral infection for quite some time now and was even forced to postpone some of her shows back in September and October as the infection ended up affecting her kidney function as well.

According to Closer Weekly, via the Daily Mail, the singer even had to be briefly hospitalized before being released with a monitor to check her heart function.

According to E! News, Cher is "totally devastated" by the news, and she has released a statement that reads, "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 year and finish what we started."

Cher will be unable to complete the 23 show dates she had left on the schedule between this weekend and February 2015, but we're sure fans understand it is important for the 68-year-old star to take care of herself and get some well-needed rest.

To further express her disappointment, Cher took to Twitter to once again say sorry to her fans.
