Legends I've Seen: Cher


Legend:
Cher

Number of Concerts I've Attended:
One. This Minneapolis concert was supposed to be the final concert of Cher's career. Then she decided to extend the farewell tour. And extend it. And extend it. She ended up coming back to Minneapolis another three times! And now she's headlining in Vegas.

Iconic Moment:
The Bob Mackie costumes, the elaborate productions and Cher just being Cher. The show was very well produced. The mega-hit If I Could Turn Back Time was a crowd favorite.

I saw her in Vegas; Cyndi Lauper opened the show. It was awesome. After Cher came out in various costumes (about 1 outfit per every 2 songs) and rode around on the stage in an animatronics-powered elephant she said, "Britney...J.Lo... top this, bitches!" LOVE HER

That woman is never going to retire. I don't think it's possible for her. She would get too bored. And good for us she keeps turning out the hits!

The first concert Captain Gadget and I went to and he had the tickets. He actually bought tickets to a Cher concert. Loved it!!

I would pay to stand on a street corner and see her walk by.
She is fabulous in film, on TV and live!

I adore Bob Mackie!
His collaboration w Carol Burnett is pure genius!

Love, love, love her. I watched her back when she and Sonny had their show. Loved her then and love her now. I think she is a great actress, singer and woman. She supported her daughter/son during her change and has alwasy said what she thought - critics be damned. Last, She has charisma!!

I love this picture of Cher. The deep mahogany makes her look even more exotic than usual....that deep voice is right on!

Saw her twice, in Vanc on her farewell tour and then two years later here in Edmonton on the 12" extended remix of her farewell tour.

Awesome live show, great entertainer, and Cyndi Lauper was also fantastic.

Would see them both again in a second!

Saw her in Vegas...cried the entire time. Chastity/Chaz (is that his name now...I think it's a Freudian slip that I can't remember it)...anyway, we are the same age. I was so jealous of that little girl when Cher would bring her out at the end of the TV show. I would have made a far better daughter!

I've never had the pleasure, but I have heard she has a new CD in the pipeline. I can't wait.
