LAS VEGAS, Sept. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- In what will go down in Las Vegas history as the glitziest show to ever rock Las Vegas, Cher announced today that she will end her three year residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace on Saturday, February 5, 2011. Cher will have performed approximately 200 shows during the course of her three years at The Colosseum which began on May 6, 2008.
The extraordinary production, aptly titled Cher, is a high-energy, concert-style show that features the artist's record-breaking hits, including "If I Could Turn Back Time" and "Believe". With her infamous rock-and-roll attitude and theatrical affinity, the show treats guests to an intimate look back through Cher's iconic career, with vintage footage of rarely-seen "Sonny and Cher" clips and a marvelous stage that alters its scenery for every song and mood.
Designed exclusively for the 4,300-seat Colosseum at Caesars Palace, Cher boasts the talents of choreographer and director Doriana Sanchez, who brings Cher's vision to life using 16 dancers and aerialists, state-of-the-art video and special effects, and ambitious set designs. Not surprisingly, audience members can expect to be blown away by Cher's signature breathtaking costumes, which were designed by the world-renowned fashion icon Bob Mackie.
"Cher is an entertainment legend," said John Meglen, co-CEO and president of AEG Live/Concerts West. "We are delighted that she has called The Colosseum at Caesars Palace home for three years. We wish her luck in future endeavors and thank her and the cast and crew for their dedication."
"With each performance as fresh and energetic as opening night, Cher continues to reign among the best of the city's long roster of legendary talents," said Gary Selesner, president of Caesars Palace. "Our guests won't want to miss these grand finale performances."
