Cher Slips on Stage but Show Goes On!

 

Cher Slips Las Vegas Concert 

Cher is back in Las Vegas again, having started up the second round of her concert shows at Caesars Palace and we were very fortunate to be able to get second-to-last row seats in the nosebleed sections to see this diva perform.

And we actually got quite a show. During the second song of her set, “I Found Someone”, Cher fell down at the front of the stage.

Apparently, her heel got stuck in–as she later put it–“one of these jeweled…whatever these fucking things are.” She was referring to her elaborate beige, glittering and fringe-heavy Bob Mackie outfit, complete with wild headress of course.

But Cher soldiered on, making jokes about how she has never fallen down in her career on stage before (“That’s what I get for doing this stuff at my age”) and when the stage and band began to move into the next song, Cher insisted that they stop and start up from where she fell down.

It was probably the last 15 seconds of the song but Cher made sure the audience was getting what they paid for and that’s at least $95 a ticket.

The rest of the show is just as glittery as each of the Bob Mackie outfits Cher wears. In fact, a good portion of the excitement of the show is the anticipation of what Cher will come out wearing next. She probably changes for almost every song except two.

The songs are a mix of classic covers (U2’s “Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For’), Sonny and Cher hits (“The Beat Goes On”, “I Got You Babe”) and Cher’s new millennium hits (“Strong Enough” and “Believe”).

Yet nothing makes the crowd go more wild than the 80s classic, “If I Could Turn Back Time” in which Cher wears an outfit similar to that scandalous one she wore in the song’s video aboard the Navy ship.

Since she’s changing costumes after almost every song, there are a lot of filler acts from acrobats and dancers. The dancers we thought were a little sloppy. Maybe they went out too hard the night before. The acrobats are as always, a little bit scary and a lot awe-inspiring.

There are also clips from the Sonny and Cher variety show and Cher’s famous movie clips. As the crowd waits for Cher to sing the encore (“Believe”), this photo collection is show on the screen covering the stage with the middle picture of Cher morphing into all of her different looks.

After a while, you start to realize that Cher has had a lot of plastic surgery. Which actually makes it all the more impressive that she’s down on stage busting a move with her dancers and singing her heart out. Viva la Cher!

Insider Tip: Seating starts around 7:15pm and it’s basically one big mass of people moving into the theater. If you wait until around 7:30pm the crowd has dissipated and you can still have time to take snapshots in front of the Cher costumes in glass cases on display. The show starts at around 7:45pm.

    What does this mean exactly? I don’t get the connection between her plastic surgery and her ability to move unless we are talking about a hip replacement…..

    Eric and Marcus, I agree with both of you. That comment was irrelevant.

    I was there the night she fell! She was so great about it and the audience laughed with her and she got right back up and insisted on finishing I Found Someone. She also kept warning us about any crazy notes we might hear since she had a sore throat but I didn’t hear anything but perfection throughout this show and the 2nd one I saw while I was in Vegas. She is beyond FABUlous and now I wish I l,lived in Vegas so I coudl see her every night!

    Cher did a spectacular job on stage as the concert I was at was the day after she fell. Cher never let on that she was in any pain during the show. We heard the next day she had to cancel her concert, therefore we felt very fortunate to have seen her show especially after her fall. WOW what a show.
