Tickets for year three of Cher’s Caesars show went on sale on my wedding day, new shows starting April 10, 2010. I still haven’t bought any tickets yet. I heard that Barry Manilow is moving to the Paris Casino for a more intimate show. Is that another way of saying low ticket sales booted him out of the larger Hilton theater? In any case, I would like to bundle these shows into a Cher/Barry Manilow weekend so that I can recreate a typical weekend of mine as a pre-teen spending quality time with my parents’ phonograph. Yes…my parents had no record player; they had a phonograph. That’s how old I am, kids.
There’s a new Bob Mackie interview where he talks about the show’s new costumes and how Cher’s favorite color-schemes for them have evolved over the years. Now she likes day-glo green and hot pink. Wore orange once but now really hates it. Wasn’t the Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour color scheme orange. There was a lot of orange going on back then as I recall. Cher has also added “The Fire Down Below”, the old Bob Seger tune she sang in late 80s/early 90s shows, back into her set with a New York stage and zoot suit a costume. http://www.cherworld.com/news/?p=873
And Cher will mark her 100th performance soon if she hasn't already.
