Iconic music superstar Cher shows off her decades of hits and legendary showmanship in a Las Vegas spectacle that may very well leave you immersed in diva nirvana.
The star’s relationship to Las Vegas goes way back, as she and Sonny Bono opened for Pat Boone at The Flamingo in 1969 before the two of them headlined at The Sahara throughout the 70’s. From 1979- 1982, the diva played at Caesars as a solo artist, making her current show a triumphant return to the world famous resort.
If you’re a fan, you already know the music. The singer powerhouses her way through earlier hits like “Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves” and “If I Could Turn Back Time,” doo wops through “The Shoop Shoop Song (It’s in His Kiss),” snaps her way through “The Beat Goes On” and makes you wonder if you really are “Strong Enough” to withstand all of the sensory stimulation. It’s a non-stop barrage of hits, as you’ll delight to classics like “I Found Someone,” “After All,” “Half Breed” and her recent come-back megahit, “Believe.” She even performs a touching duet of “I Got You Babe” with a video of the late Sonny Bono.
The venue lends itself perfectly to guiding you through an epic, career-spanning journey. The Colosseum at Caesars Palace is as grand as the ancient Roman architectural wonder it’s modeled after, yet the farthest seat from the stage is a mere 120 feet.
The amazing sets move from top to bottom, side to side, and in every other direction too. The producers employed a truly dynamic stage and state-of-the-art video technology to present a retrospective of the music icon’s nearly 50 years in entertainment. If that isn’t enough spectacle, add in some aerialists and 16 perfectly-trained dancers to add some dynamic backup by dynamic choreography.
Of course, all the flash and dazzle is there to support the superstar herself, bedecked in the most flamboyant costumes that the “Sultan of Sequin” himself, Bob Mackie could dream up and design. During the costume changes between the increasingly elaborate outfits the star shows off over the course of the show, you’ll get to enjoy delightful video clips from her famous talk show appearances, movie scenes and press interviews. Of course they show the superstar at her diva best—being snarky, smart and endearing.
But it’s the star’s voice that impresses the most. For all the amazing visuals, from the aerialists to the the dancers to the stunning costume changes, the most incredible part of the show is hearing the singer belt out hit after hit. After so many decades in showbiz, this is one diva whose still got it.
The new Cher in Las Vegas shows take you on a triumphant journey through the past, present and future of the iconic diva’s life and legendary career.
