When the floor-to-ceiling sheer fabric hiding the stage dropped, fans saw Cher at the center of the stage standing high atop a Roman column that lowered the headdress-adorning diva to the floor as she belted out “Woman’s World”—however, it was immediately noted that both women and men were dancing and screaming along to the beat-heavy club hit. The audience was going wild. Cher was still being lowered via the pillar on which she stood. As soon as she became level with the stage, she was immediately joined by her fist-pumping female backup dancers driving the audience into further frenzy. Cher’s Vegas-style headdress was removed and she paraded the stage looking like Cleopatra.
A throwback to the 60’s, she came out onstage wearing a red-sequined go-go outfit with her black and white boa for her next songs. With a psychedelic display reminiscent of a Dr. Seuss book emanating from the backstage, old video footage of ‘Sonny and Cher’ performing the song as a duo played on the stage screen. As the older fans in the crowd began to reminisce back to those times of the singing husband / wife couple, she sang ‘I’ve Got You Babe’ as a “1960’s Sonny” sang the accompaniment on the screen immediately beside Cher. It was a very warm and loving moment.
Essentially after each song, Cher would exit the stage and quickly come out wearing a new outfit (and wig). Later in the show she would come out wearing a gypsy outfit ( whilst singing ‘Gypsies, Tramps, and Thieves’), a full-length native-American headdress (‘Half-Breed’), and then her top-coat-wearing but pant-less performance (‘Burlesque’). Cher would also be joined by a larger-than-life Trojan horse (‘Take It Like a Man’), and even wear a Naval sailor’s hat that some very enthusiastic fans threw onto the stage as she performed ‘If I Could Turn Back Time’.
