Last night Cher played Las Vegas with special guest Cyndi Lauper as her opening act. When we arrived at The Tropicana last week our room overlooked the huge 3-story video marquis at the MGM where the concert took place. After days of hypnotic advertising of the Cher billboard we gave in & were able to obtain a couple of tickets for this fabulous concert featuring these 2 legendary divas & fierce gay allies. Cher’s Dressed to Kill Tour is the eighth solo concert tour by our favorite pop icon to promote her 26th studio album, Closer to the Truth. Lauper is celebrating the 30th anniversary of her 1983 debut album She's So Unusual, which made her a household name. Lauper’s performance included just about every hit song from that classic album & her voice was timeless. She also addressed the amazing work that she does for LGBT homeless youth & her current Broadway hit Kinky Boots. Then Cher’s show began with her rising atop a pedestal in a glittering gown & feathered headdress singing "Woman's World" surrounded by dancers & back-up vocalists. Next she performed "Strong Enough" the feminist anthem just before a brief monologue with the audience. Cher talked about this really being her last tour but who knows for sure. Cher’s lavishly staged concert included just about every hit the pop icon has ever done. The concert concluded with Cher circling the huge arena in an open wired platform allowing the entire audience a close-up experience. This is a spectacular must-see event you really don’t want to miss especially if it just may be her last concert tour.
