Last year my wife and I were looking for some holiday options online when we stumbled across a website which had discount Cher tickets in Las Vegas. I have always wanted to see the living legend that is Cher and so we decided to make a trip of it and spend a week in Vegas, culminating in a the show itself. We had an amazing week but the highlight of the trip was without question seeing this legendary performer. I have seen some older stars before who have disappointed, that was absolutely not the case with Cher. If you are able to get tickets to go and see this living legend, here is what you can expect.
I have always thought that Cher’s vocals were massively underrated and this was even more true when I saw her live. Unlike many stars she has not had to change the key of songs so that she can reach the high notes, her voice sounds as good as it did back in the 60s, now it has even more layers and character to it. Cher’s vocals live are brilliant and she doesn’t rely on the help of autotune or backing singers to carry her through the set.
Something which Cher has always been known for is her dramatic costumes and her risqué pieces and this is something which she brings to her live show in spades. I lost count in the end but she must have gone through at least 10 costume changes during the night. The costumes are able to help complete the performance of her song or songs, and they really add something a little special to the evening.
Mixture of Hits
The song choices which she made were absolutely perfect and made sure that there was something for everyone. Cher has a career which has spanned almost 6 decades, meaning that there are plenty of hits to get through. When we saw the perfjoamcne she did it almost chronologically, starting off with those songs she wrote with Sonny Bono, moving through the 80s with songs like Jesse James and Turn Back Time, culminating in a medley of songs from the 90s like the shoot Shoot Song and Believe. Sometimes you can come away from gigs having not heard a song that you wanted to, this was not the case after we left the Cher concert.
I hate it when artists fail to recognize the crowd, when they just stand up there and perform before disappearing into the night. Cher is not one of those performers and from the very beginning of the evening she would chat casually to the audience, and then between most songs she would also have something to say or a story to tell. This concert really made me feel like I was a part of it and that is down to the absolutely legendary woman that is Cher.
A great concert and well worth the trip to see her.
