Some things are classic. DaVinci’s Mona Lisa, the Bill of Rights, and a performer’s ability to be well, greater than others. I think people call that “star power” and/or “charisma.” Cher has it in spades.
Some will say Diva. I just say Star. She makes you feel like you in your living room and she is performing just for you. Her voice is amazing and powerful; her costumes are pure Cher; the staging is gorgeous; basically watching Cher in her element – the stage in a big arena – is like watching a cross between Broadway/Cirque du Soleil/variety show. In short, you are never bored and are frequently breathless.
I went because my buddy LB and her buddy Br, LOVE CHER! I am so glad I went. I loved every second of it. And I am still, three days later, bowing the star power and stage craft of the one and only Cher.
Long may she reign!
PLUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG! Pat Benatar!
Pat Benatar and hubby/guitarist/partner Neil Giraldo opened for Cher. I did not know I would see Pat until the day before the show. Now understand: I LOVE PAT BENATAR! Good grief I have most of her albums on vinyl. I love, love, love her because she kicked butt and took names on the Rock’n’Roll stage like very few before her. She was a woman hard rocker who put most of her peers – male and female – to vocal shame. To say the woman has pipes is a huge understatement. So not only did I love watching Cher, I got to send some concert love to Pat too.
What a great night!!!
