From Cher to Eternity

There is an amusing article about Cher at Bay Area Living. Here's a bi about a recent show:

Cher's 90-minute presentation began as the 58-year-old California native descended to the stage floor on top of a jeweled chandelier singing U2's "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For." It's the worst moment of the show. Cher takes this majestic, spiritual song of longing, rendered so poignantly on "The Joshua Tree," and transforms it into a piece of hollow, plastic, Vegas-style schlock.

The concert isn't as much about song selection as it is about everything else — the elephant the singer rode onto the stage to perform "All or Nothing," the ringmaster's coat and accompanying whip she used while first greeting the crowd, the archival video footage that showed Cher with the likes of David Bowie and Ray Charles.
Sounds awesome to me.
