Love Hurts

 

Due to the success of herLove Hurts album and her smash hit single “The Shoop Shoop Song” from the movie Mermaids, Cher performed six shows as a tour preview at theSands Atlantic CityinAtlantic City, New Jersey.After the promotion of the Love Hurts album on various hit TV shows (includingDavid Letterman,Dame Edna Show etc.) Cher kicked off her European leg of the tour. Although Cher toured Europe extensively, she didn’t tour the USA extensively. The tour was originally set to commence in March 1992, however, this was postponed until April 1992 due to illness.During an interview, Cher apologized to spectators stating, “I am very disappointed that we had to postpone these shows and I apologize to all my fans who bought tickets.”

In comparison with her previous tour, the show was less elaborate, but more controversial for the clothes and the religious symbols used. At the center of the stage there was a big dry tree with branches that extended to the two sides of the stage. There were also brick-like columns and on top of each there was a religious symbol: a serpent pierced, a stylized fish that the first Christians drew in the catacombs, a cross, the symbol of peace, and the heart of theEx-voto(which was also used for the first controversial cover of the albumHeart of Stone). Above, hanging on the right, there was a black angel, naked, with big golden wings. Several covers wered performed including: “Many Rivers To Cross”, “Fire”, “Love is a Battlefield” and “Shoop Shoop”.

Long time friend and designed to CHER Bob Mackiecreated nine costumes for the Love Hurts Tour, repeating the sameLeather/Dominatrixstyle of the Geffen-era. On this, Cher used some clothes already used in previous tours or for public appearances. The first, is for the performance of “We All Sleep Alone” and “I Found Someone” where Cher wore clothes with holes and paillettes and the black curly wig. For the first song she added a black leather jacket. This dress was previous used in “The Black Rose Show” and in the “I Found Someone” music video. During the performance of “After All” Cher wore anIce Queenfur coat with sequined designs and pointed hat. This was used in the Heart of Stone Tour and today in the “Cher at the Colosseum” show inLas VegasatCaesar’s Palace. The last one was similar to the dress she wore when she attended theAcademy Awardsand won her award for Best Actress in 1988. This was used for the performance of “Many Rivers to Cross” and was a dark, sparkly, and transparent dress.

During the European and North American shows the costumes remained the same, except for the night ofHalloweenin New York, where Cher for the first songs wore a witch dress with a twisted bodice and a black transparent skirt. For the performance she also wore a white and black wig. The same wig was also used for the “If I could Turn Back Time” performance
