She’s 58 going on 30. Looks fabulous. Energetic, talented, entertaining and still, after doing 316 shows, presents the most fabulous show-stopping one-and-a-half-hour revue of all her hits, movies and TV appearances.
The CHER show, recently presented at MOHEGAN SUN ARENA in Uncasville, Connecticut, began with the dynamic, ever-popular VILLAGE PEOPLE consisting of an Indian Chief, Policeman, Hard Hat, Military Man, Cowboy and Biker singing all of their still popular songs such as MACHO MACHO MAN, IN THE NAVY and of course YMCA, for a 45-minute presentation before the arrival of the star.
CHER arrived on stage descending from the ceiling in a chandelier, dressed in a Victorian costume which is then torn away by dancers, leaving CHER in a G-STRING covered with silver, shimmering icicles. WOW! What an entrance. For the second song she even arrives on stage atop a life-size mechanical elephant!
She sings all of her hits (and others) such as, I STILL HAVEN’T FOUND WHAT I’M LOOKING FOR, BANG BANG, STRONG ENOUGH, IF I COULD TURN BACK TIME and ends with her super-hit BELIEVE.
And if you can believe this, she changes costumes with each song and you’ll see her in everything from jeans, to harem-inspired costumes, to multi-colored slacks. All of this on a mystical set accenting each musical presentation, complete with aerial acrobatic dancers, back-up singers and musicians.
A sold-out arena of 7500 people applauded and enjoyed the show with an audience of mainly middle-aged to older guests all chanting CHER’s hits. In fact, the 40ish year-old woman sitting in front of me was mouthing all the lyrics!
Throughout the evening there are glimpses of CHER in her many TV appearances with David Letterman, George Burns, Lucille Ball, Carol Burnett as well as her late husband Sonny Bono singing I’VE GOT YOU BABE.
Also, there are movie clips of CHER in WITCHES OF EASTWICK, SILKWOOD, MASK, TEA WITH MUSSOLINI, SUSPECT, MERMAIDS, STUCK ON YOU and MOONSTRUCK!
Don’t leave this earth until you’ve CHERED-IT!
