“I can’t imagine anyone doing a better job with my music than the brilliant cast of ‘The Cher Show’ and I’m looking forward to talking about the show and my career on the new SiriusXM channel,” commented Cher.
“Working with Cher these last three years has confirmed everything I always thought about this extraordinary icon: She’s brilliant, she’s brave, and she is one of the greatest artists of our time,” said producer Jeffrey Seller. “The Cher Channel on SiriusXM is a perfect way for fans to get even deeper into the inspiration that is Cher.”

For six straight decades, only one unstoppable force has flat-out dominated popular culture — breaking down barriers, pushing boundaries, and letting nothing and no one stand in her way. Cher is the single greatest Gay Icon of all time. The Cher Show is her story, and it’s packed with so much Cher that it takes three women to play her: The kid starting out, the glam pop star and the icon. The Cher Show is 35 smash hits, six decades of stardom, two rock-star husbands, a Grammy, an Oscar, an Emmy, and enough Bob Mackie gowns to cause a sequins shortage in New York City, all in one unabashedly fabulous new musical.
Cher is currently on tour with her critically acclaimed “Here We Go Again” Tour and most recently received a Kennedy Center Honor.
SiriusXM subscribers are able to listen to The Cher Channel, channel 4, on SiriusXM radios, and those with streaming access can listen online, on-the-go with the SiriusXM mobile app and at home on a wide variety of connected devices including smart TVs, Amazon Alexa devices, Apple TV, PlayStation, Roku, Sonos speakers and more.
