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.
That trek was followed by a three year, 192-show Vegas residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, just down the Strip from her current digs. Then, in 2014, there were five months of Dressed to Kill tour dates.
