Passport Magazine On Classic Cher: The Experience Verges On Ecstatic Sensory Overload

Travel publication Passport Magazine's Jim Gladstone & Robert Adams reported on Cher's return to the stage in her residency Classic Cher:

Do you believe in life after Cher? “This is our last goodbye, it’s true,” she sang in “Strong Enough,” the second number in her thundering glitterstorm of a new show, Classic Cher, which opened last week to a giddy Las Vegas crowd of 5,000 in the Park Theater at the Monte Carlo Resort and Casino.

But who knows what to believe when it comes to comebacks by our dear, dithering diva. After all, it’s been a dozen years since Cher announced her official Farewell Tour.

Las Vegas Weekly: Cher Delivered A Consistently Powerful Performance Throughout The Night

Las Vegas Weekly's Brock Radke reviewed Classic Cher:

The only thing we knew for sure was that there would be many grand costume changes, and we weren’t disappointed. Cher went through 11 Bob Mackie-designed outfits during opening night of her all-new Las Vegas residency production Classic Cher at Park Theater on February 8—including the iconic (and revealing) sheer, black ensemble she wore in the 1989 video for “If I Could Turn Back Time.” Now 70 years old, Cher rocked the look—and all the others—like no one else can, delivering a consistently powerful performance throughout the night. But it was during that memorable late-’80s track—paired with another rock ballad from the era, “I Found Someone”—that the colorful, career-spanning show hit its peak. The crowd of 5,000-plus went wild.
