Final Shows for Cher’s Three Run at Caesars
Can you believe it?!
Cher’s final run of about a dozen shows. Cher closes Feb. 5, and she’ll have performed some 200 shows during those three years at Caesars Palace. 90 minutes a night and it’s been nearly standing room only each performance for the 4,300-seat theater.
She actually gets jittery nerves! Cher tweeted this week, “Going 2 Vegas Tues. ! You’d think that after 46 yrs ( God i didn’t even know I WAS 46 yet !) I’d be tripping over my Last NERVE !….But Alas …… I AM ! u think Barbara or Celine or Dolly or ANY OF the OTHER DIVAS SHAKE IN THEIR ALMOST NON EXISTENT COSTUMES ?”
* by the way, she was BORN in 1946!
It has been an extraordinary, record-breaking run. She says in Burlesque, You Haven’t Seen The Last of Me. But it’s a guessing game is she will ever perform another concert.
She’s told her closest friends that she’s happier at home in Malibu, Calif., than strutting the stage in thigh-high boots, ripped fishnets and garter belts on The Strip, although she has enjoyed her run and the acclaim.
What a great space Caesars is for a show. The Colosseum at Caesars Palace is a contemporary interpretation of one of antiquity’s architectural wonders. Built at a cost of $95 million, The Colosseum is a striking landmark. With seating for up to 4,300, The Colosseum is designed to provide audiences with an extraordinary entertainment experience. No fan is more than 120 feet from Cher while seated for the show.
“Cher is an entertainment legend,” John Meglen, co-CEO and president of AEG Live/Concerts West, said. “We are delighted that she has called The Colosseum at Caesars Palace home for three years. We wish her luck in future endeavors and thank her and the cast and crew for their dedication.”
“Every performance by Cher has been as fresh and energetic as opening night. She has reigned among the best of our city’s long roster of legendary talents,” said Gary Selesner, president of Caesars Palace. “Nobody will want to miss these grand finale performances.”
If you want to see her one last time, there are still some tickets left . But hurry! The clock is ticking!
Celine Dion, is returning to her Colosseum home in March. AEG producers have talked with Shania Twain about a series of 2011 dates, and they are awaiting word from Rod Stewart for new mini-residency run dates.
