Same Ole with a bit of Déjà vu..Classic Cher Concert
The audience may have needed to double check their tickets as Cher made her grand entrance miming Woman’s World… looking more like a Diana Ross “look a like”. Wearing a revealing blue sequined gown with huge black afro, the diva descended on a recycled Dressed to Kill Tour prop. Cher mimed most of the song and walked from side to side with basic choreography and at some stages fist pumping the air pretending Donald Trump was in the audience as she sang Strong Enough. Cher opened her show with the same opening songs from her prior Dressed to Kill Tour.
Cher then wheeled out a carbon copy routine from the Farewell Tour riding an elephant prop miming All or Nothing and Gayatri Mantra opening.
A bit more déjà vu and Cher walked around the stage wearing the same costume from her Farewell Tour singing All I Really Wanna Do followed by her classics The Beat Goes On and I Got You Babe with the legendary Sonny Bono on the big screen.
Cher also performed Gypsies Tramps and Thieves, Dark Lady (same costume as Colosseum) and Half Breed (same costume as D2K & Colosseum) Welcome to Burlesque (same costume as D2k), Take Me Home (Same as Colosseum), After All riding a gondola (costume similar to D2K), Walking in Memphis & The Shoop Shoop song (similar costume to Farewell Tour with baggy jeans). Choreography and props all similar to prior tours.
Later in the evening Cher donned her Turn Back Time outfit (same as last 3 tours) to sing I Found Someone followed by Turn Back Time. This old girl certainly has this routine down pat after doing it so many times in the same order. 1, 2, 3 shuffle feet, move left, move right.
Finally Cher wore the same costume as D2K Tour to sing Believe, miming parts of the song while waving to the crowd.
Overall Classic Cher was a rehash of her prior 3 concert tours and die hard fans might be disappointed at the lack of new content. If you have seen all her shows on DVD and in person save your money because not a lot of imagination or thought has gone into creating new exciting content, mixing around the setlist or adding new songs. If you love “Classic Cher” same ole, same ole then go for it and enjoy her while she can still do it at age 70.
