Audience Reviews for Cher - Live In Concert

½

1999 Emmy award winning Vegas MGM concert is Cher at her usual best, talking to her raving audience like a friend. So unusual to have stars actually talk to their audience (and talk too much maybe). Few do that, Elvis and a few others did some on stage conversation but not like Cher. The last song and stage show is tremendous with acrobats performing high wire Olympic style feats on the rings.

This is not so much a one person show at all. Filled in with film clips of her and Sonny Bono's television show; past film performances too. The audience watches silently, in rapture of what they are seeing.

She isn't out of shape at all. By contrast, this seems almost minimalist. Still, a fun time had by all that night for sure. Tina Turner she is not. Tina's concerts are truely blockbuster performances (see the Amsterdam concert of Tina). But Cher's shows like this one are pretty good. A lot of the costumes are now worn by others giving them brief appearances, but not Cher herself. Cher makes perhaps a half dozen changes of costume.

I have to hand it to Cher, one of the few entertainers in history that got to be known by one name alone (ie Elvis, Bono, Sinatra, Madonna etc.).

Recorded at Las Vegas' MGM Grand, the show spotlight's Cher's glitz, glamour, and vocal pyrotechnics and features a career-spanning set list....show off her interpretive skills and reaffirm why she is such an enduring performer. The disc also features a cast biography and photo gallery, which elevates it above many of the other concert DVDs currently available."---- Heather Phares 2 An amazing Cher extravaganza of some of her very best songs, punctuated with short clips of her finest acting performances on the huge screens above the stage while she herself is having one of her frequent costume changes. A truly remarkable woman with amazing talent who, despite her previous 33 years in the business, still manages to make her performances as fresh and new as ever. Viva la diva - CHER!
