WOW....NOT WHAT I WAS EXPECTING!
I was so excited to see Cher....have loved her for years but so disappointed!! I figured I would be standing up the whole time singing along with her as she sang hit after hit....I was so wrong! I didnt stand up once....and the hits were few. The music and backup singers over powered her the majority of the time. Too much of everything else...dancers,costume changes and just not enough songs. Dont get why she had to lip sync either when all she did was walk back and forth on the stage. When she was done....she just walked off with a little wave and that was it!!! Anyway...over all I'm glad I saw her and she looked great for 73 but that doesnt mean you need to have another comeback tour. Still a fan but the experience was not what I hoping for!

DIDN’T SAY THANKS
Would have been nice if she had at least acknowledged e crowd that paid good money to see her. No — just disappeared at the end.

$400 DOWN THE DRAIN...
On a scale of 1 - 10, I'll give the Cher concert a 3. Had floor seat, lots of drunks spilling drinks etc.. Poor song choices, to few songs, super long break between warm-up band and main event. long costume change times and poor ending. Was more like a musical you would see at a dinner theater. Will not see another of her concerts.

LAST TIME I WILL SEE CHER
I have seen Cher many times and usually I am very impressed. This time she clearly called it in! Songs did not go together. She wasted a long time talking about the same stories she has told over and over again. The ending was terrible. We always know she will do Believe but she normally comes back out for a final song where she gets on a lift and goes over the audience. Not this time! As I mentioned earlier, she is calling it in but still taking our money. No longer for me. I will see high energy acts like Taylor, Pink, or Ariana!

Cher was tired out she barely sang an hour and did not do some of her classics she talked about the same things as she did in the past shows I have seen, I paid for the best floor seats FL5 when I purchased my tickets back in October I talked to people last night that just got in the 4th row on the floor up front, many drunks spilling drinks not a good experience. I do hope this her final farewell because it is mine. I do love Cher but I thought Chic did a better job

NOT A TOUR IF NOT LIVE SINGING
Wow I am shocked to pay $78 to watch Cher lip sync. Not a tour if not live singing. I don’t expect her to do things she did in the past but this seems like taking advantage of peoples time & money. On top of the lip syncing they played numerous videos of her and acts where it was her dancers & she was not on stage probably in costume change. Came on 30 minutes late too. This is the first bad review I have left ever for a musician. I would rather she tour with another person & sing rather than see this mini non live musical of her career. Yikes no wonder resales of tix I noticed were 1/2 price of tix cost. Sad.

I love Cher but this was a disappointment. The mediocre lead band (called Chic) went on for almost an hour. Sound quality was bad, and the woman whose solos were primarily her screaming needs to get a voice coach or find another career. Then, we waited 45 minutes with no announcements or anything - I think it was to set up stage. Sets were wonderful but overdone. It would’ve been better if she spent more time singing. She sang 3 ABBA songs that didn’t suit her at all. Her band and backup singers was too loud - between that and the poor sound quality we rarely heard her voice.
