Interpreting Believe Visually

BelieveCher scholar Todd from Wisconsin wrote to me a few weeks ago to discuss the costumes throughout the years at concert shows for the song "Believe." Todd flew down to Phoenix to see the opening show of the Dressed to Kill tour and he talked about the "cosmic" and "futuristic" theme always for costumes and set designs for the performance, how throughout the tours, the shows have stayed with that theme. Todd thought re-visiting the clubby "Believe" video, descending in a clear box, would be interesting.

I  agree with this. And besides the dance sound, I wonder why the interpretation of the song has always been so circus-top other-worldly.

I still defend the cartoon-like costume Cher wore on the opening night but it would be interesting to see an interpretation that shakes things up. Not that we have many opportunities left for that.

Thanks for your thoughts, Mary!

I think the problem with this concert... is that they used too much dance music and not enough of the kind of stuff we are used to seeing and hearing from cher.....
it even looked on youtube that perhaps she was lipsyncing to the dance stuff.
