Cher and Cyndi have fun in Columbus

Cher and Cyndi Lauper, two iconic singers, dazzled a packed Nationwide Arena audience last night in a concert that was impressive both musically and as a spectacle.

Cher, 67, made an amazing entrance. The curtain fell, and there she was, standing atop a 20-foot pole, looking like a cross between an Egyptian queen and a Vegas showgirl as she belted out Woman’s World and Strong Enough.

“This is my farewell-farewell tour, I’m not kidding,” she said with winks and crossed fingers. “ I’m too old for this.”

For this tour, Cher said, “I’ll come out, sing in fabulous costumes and be fabulous.”

And that’s just what she did, wearing 11 different costumes, including a mind-blowing, ground-touching Indian headdress of pink, blue and orange feathers for Half Breed. She also emerged from a Trojan horse as a blond warrior for Take it Like a Man; appeared in a silver-fringed, heart-shaped pasties thing with platinum/pink hair for Believe; and wore a cute tux-like creation on Welcome to Burlesque.

However, a concert is more than just fashion. Cher’s distinctive contralto voice was strong as ever on most songs, particularly on You Haven’t Seen the Last of Me; I Found Someone; If I Could Turn Back Time; Just Like Jesse James and a cover of Marc Cohn’s Walking in Memphis.

A highlight came when Cher sang, seemingly with late ex-husband Sonny Bono, on I Got You Babe as videos of him were shown. “I thought about doing this for a long time, but I never could,” Cher said. “But since this is the last tour … He was such a ham. He would love this.”

Cher concluded her concert in a gown, halo and blond pigtails as she hovered over the crowd to sing I Hope You Find It.

Cyndi Lauper gave a great 60-minute performance to open the night. Lauper wore a hooded robe and strode through the crowd like a boxer coming to the ring as she sang She Bop. She took that off to reveal a black leather get-up, combat boots and long flaming red hair while singing I’ll Kiss You.

As she sang the reggae-flavored Witness, Lauper, 60, was whirling around like it was 1984 again. This was repeated on dance songs like Into the Nightlife and Sex Is in the Heel, the latter song from her Broadway show Kinky Boots. She also screamed Money Changes.

Everything as if her fortunes had suddenly changed.

There was some art on All Through the Night, with Lauper illuminating her face with a light stick, holding a mirror ball in front of her face and holding long, beautiful notes. There was also some humor on Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.

Then there were the brilliant ballads Time After Time, Hat Full of Stars and True Colors. On the latter, Lauper screamed at the end, “Don’t be afraid! And that goes for everyone.”

      A shout out from the Cleveland show… Cyndi & Cher were UNBELIEVABLY STUNNING! I had goose bumps when Cyndi entered from the crowd donned in a boxer robe and when the curtain dropped for Cher. I’m 42 and I’m serious when I say this was THE BEST concert I have ever been to. There is definitely a chemistry between Cyndi and Cher and if there is a DVD I hope it includes both of them so I can enjoy the experience over again in its entirety.

    This was the best concert I have ever been to.Cyndi opened the show with her fantastic voice.She put on a 60 minute show that was incredible.
    Cher also put on a fantastic show.She looked beautiful as ever and her voice was so powerful. I felt so lucky to have been able to witness this concert.Cher had the best costume changes and different stage settings.

  4. When it comes to performing, Cher is truly a goddess of pop. She has never let her fans down. I grew up listening to and watching Cher, and her concert was fabulous. Thank you Cher for all the wonderful memories!!
