London: Pop star Cher seems to have dropped her plans to retire from touring and is gearing up to hit the road this year. The `If I Could Turn Back Time` hitmaker - who has previously claimed she would never go on the road again – is "shaking" with excitement about her new run of concerts, which will begin in September, reported a website.

In a series of tweets, the 65-year-old singer wrote, "Oh my god!!!! Just saw the sets 4 the show!!! I can`t show u cause youd never 4give me! Theres so much magic I am breathless!"

"I`m shaking! The whole set/Look changes 4 every song! I mean completing changes! Tour starts in Sept! First dates Kansas. Now I really do need top 10 favorites! It’s Scary 2!(sic)"

Despite her previous statement about retiring from touring, even having a three-year long `Farewell Tour` which ended in 2005, she has since performed at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas for nearly three years. She also took a starring role and marked her return to singing in 2010 movie `Burlesque` alongside Christina Aguilera and Stanley Tucci. Her last album `Living Proof` was released in 2001 and spawned singles `The Music`s No Good Without You` and `Song for the Lonely`.
