If you are a looking for great shows in Las Vegas, always keep an eye out for the short term performers that visit. During our last trip to Las Vegas we found out that Cher would be performing at the Monte Carlo. My family was all over that; my uncle said he would pay anything to see her, so we made it happen. Luckily we didn’t have to pay an astronomical price. We had balcony seats but it was worth it and we still had a great view.
We bought tickets for her first performance of the series, which was on May third. We had no idea what to expect since, after all, Cher is now seventy-one years old. I had heard from a friend that she was still very active on stage, so my hopes were pretty high. I didn’t want to miss out on this concert because I had never seen Cher before and with her age it is hard to say how long she will continue to tour.
My husband, Neal, was not so sure he wanted to go to the concert, but after all was said and done, we had a blast. Watching Cher’s concert was like watching a play. Almost every song had different costumes. There were lots of backup dancers that danced alongside Cher. She was on the move pretty consistently. You could tell toward the end she seemed a little tired, but seriously, she’s seventy-one and still shaking her booty on stage, that says a lot.
She didn’t speak a ton, just at the very beginning she told a couple of stories, which were interesting. She stated that she had done a five minute plank earlier that day, which blew my mind. She looks great and you can tell she takes good care of herself. After her short storytelling moment the rest of the concert was full force ahead.
The music sounded great. There was one song that they did over because Cher had a costume glitch and was stuck singing backstage, but it was cool to see what the choreography was like once she came out from behind the curtain. I thoroughly enjoyed this show and I could not take my eyes off of her or the set. I took a ton of photographs and I plan to make a coffee table book dedicated to Cher.
If you want to see Cher, I would wholeheartedly recommend this concert. She did all of the hits including songs with Sonny where they projected him on the big screen and played the recording of him singing his parts. I would even go as far as to see this concert again, it was that much fun.
