Nile Rodgers & Chic opened the show to and almost sold out Amway arena. They are an American disco funk R&B band that was organized during 1976 by guitarist Nile Rodgers and bassist Bernard Edwards. In 2017, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducted Nile Rodgers for Musical Excellence. The crowd was full of positive happy energy and the fans were dancing in the aisles even before the musicians took the stage. The outfits were on point and some of the ladies were dressed to the max.
The stage screens started playing a montage of pictures of Cher throughout her career and the anticipation levels rose along with the excitement. All of a sudden the curtain droped and the crowd went wild as Cher descended from the top of the arena on a sparkling glitter covered arched platform performing her hit song “Woman’s World” from her “Closer to the Truth” record.
I have to say, I have been a long time fan of Cher and have so many family memories from listening to her music and this show was nothing but totally amazing. The stage theatrics and props including a huge elephant which Cher appeared out of the middle, the coordinated acrobatic and aerial dances and complete set changes make this show one not to miss. Cher is simply timeless and one amazing woman.
One of the most touching moments was the duet “I Got You Babe” a song written by Sonny Bono. It was the first single taken from the debut studio album Look at Us. Performed by Cher with a recording of Sony on the screen. To end the show Cher played two of the most well known and favorite songs “Turn Back Time” from her nineteenth studio album Heart of Stone and “Believe” from her twenty-second album, Believe.
The Here We Go Again Tour is the seventh solo concert tour by American singer-actress Cher in support of her twenty-sixth studio album Dancing Queen. This is the first time the singer has embarked on a world tour since her Living Proof: The Farewell Tour (2002-2005). The tour started on 21 September 2018 and will finish on 1 November 2019.
