This concert blew me away. The opening act was fantastic and set the bar for Cher to do better. She did ...in spades. As always, she looks amazing. A fantastic set, terrific dancers and musicians, and her trademark glorious costumes. Cher provides a raucous, thoughtful, colorful trip down memory lane. Thank you, Cher, for 50 years of music. Can we have just one more Farewell Concert?

I NEVER STOPPED SMILING!!
Cher was awesome!! She still brings it when she performs and doesn't just go through the motions like some other established artists may do after years of performing. You can tell she still loves what she does and what she does is ENTERTAIN!! Great choreography with the dancers and the musicians were fantastic! Nile Rodgers and Chic as an opening act too! Wow! Just Wow! Thank you Cher. You are every bit worthy of your legendary status!!

FABULOUS! WORTH EVERY PENNY!
Cher looked and sounded great in Boston! The songs, outfits, dancers, EVERYTHING was just spectacular. This is the fourth or fifth time I’ve seen Cher. She keeps on getting better - even at 72!
Nancy and Mark from Boston, Massachusetts
We loved every minute of it! The warm up band was great. Cher was amazing her voice unbelievable. We loved all the small videos very appropriate for a farewell tour.
Madeleine T from Vancouver, British Columbia
I'VE NEVER WITNESSED ANYTHING SO ICONIC IN MY LIFE. I mean I am only 20 and was one of the youngest audience members but STILL. Highlight of my life honestly. Nothing and nobody can ever compare to Cher xx
Kristene Bowers from Las Vegas, Nevada
CHER IS AWESOME!
Wow! This woman kills it. Rocking on at 73!!! She looks and sounds amazing and the wardrobe changes are awesome! See it! Just go see it!
Kathi from Denver, Colorado
Went to this concert not expecting what I got..pleasantly surprised Her costumes, dancers ,band and backup singers were top notch. Impressed for a 73 yr old lady
Sue kelly from Denver, Colorado
I was so happy to be there. Niles Rodger and band were such a delight and a great opening, energizing act. I've seen Cher many times and enjoy her just as much each time. I love the costume changes. Cannot believe she is 73. And while she changes we are entertained w great memories of slides and dancers and the set is fantastic. Cher is a true performer and she give it her all. Thank you Niles and Cher for sharing your amazing gifts w us and making my night magical!

HERE WE GO AGAIN SECOND STOP IN ONE YEAR CONCERT
We were at the concert in February loved it This concert last night seemed to be taken to an even higher level. what a way to go top yourself! The opening act as usual Chic can certainly bring the crowd to the PARTY level for Cher to take over Wonderful evening before Thanksgiving !.
June from Bolingbrook, Illinois
Love love love I laughed and danced and cried as memories came back from the older songs. Her doing I got you babe with Sonny and the way it was set up was fabulous. Her songs were so good and she looked beyond amazing.The dancers and musicians were so good and amazing when she changed clothes. I have always loved Cher and after this concert I am going to find all her old movies. She just rocks...The tickets were for my birthday and I will always remember this concert..
Blue haired Granny from Toronto, Ontario
What a woman Cher is! The show was fantastic! The dancers were WOW! Loved every song and was happy to see the pictures on screen....great memories. Cher has been amazing for many years and continues to inspire women to push ourselves to new heights in our own lives. Today I will dye my hair blue after being inspired by Cher! May she keep going for many more years! —-what’s your Granny doing tonight!!
Essex Kinsella from Chicago, Illinois
She was and IS the FABULOUS CHER!!!! At 73 she still holds her claim to fame. Could've done without witnessing the tragedy of Niles Rogers and CHIC though...
Linda Flores from Cicero, Illinois
Cher is great I would go see her every time in Chicago
G Harte from New York, New York
STRONG VOICE, FUN AND BRILLIANT ENTERTAINER
My third Cher show over a 50 years span, ( I wanted to see her at least once more ). She is much better now than when younger with Sonny and owns the stage in every-way. People were dancing in their seats and there was so much JOY and delight around me as people of everyone group were soaking in the magic and her warmth and artistry. There will never be another like her. She's really one of kind. No one entertains like Cher, Seeing her in person is not the sam as watching her on You Tube .. Dec 3 Madison Square Garden was a night to remember! She was so powerful.
Julie from New York, New York
Cher thank you! Fabulous, entertaining, amazing❤️!

A CHRISTMAS GIFT
My sister and I bought tickets to see Cher as a Christmas gift for my mom. We grew up watching her on TV and thought it would be a lot of fun to see her altogether. I just want to say I had one of the best times with my sister, my mom and Cher. She was phenomenal, her costumes were awesome and her voice is just as I remembered it. Maybe I’m a bit naïve, I hope she wasn’t lip-synching but if she was I didn’t notice. At the end of the show, after her last number, I remember turning to my mom and telling her I wish I could go hang out with Cher one night. That’s how cool I thought she was when I saw her this past weekend. Merry Christmas Cher and thanks for a wonderful night out with my mom!
Hilary from Houston, Texas
CHER, HOUSTON TX
Great voice, great set and awesome dancers. Still going and looking amazing at 73! Some folks are griping over the gap between the warmup act and her starting. Most of the shows I’ve seen like Madonna, Lady Gaga, Chainsmokers etc all do the same thing. Some start two hours late. Yeah, Cher could’ve performed longer, but I’d imagine touring at her age gets tough. It was still an awesome show, and I’m glad Cher gave us all a chance to see her.
Jsanchez from San Antonio, Texas
SAN ANTONIO PERFORMANCE
Cher was amazing ... and did an awesome performance. For all the negative low scores, let see where these people are at 73. If you judged about the traffic, late start and drunk people., she has no control over all of it. The late start, if there was one, she’s 73, you should have stayed home. People need to appreciate the art of a live performance. She doesn’t sell out venues because she’s a bad performer. 5 Stars all the way... and if you don’t agree... let’s see you on stage at that age.
Venus from Dallas, Texas
CHER ROCKED DALLAS AND TOOK US BACK IN TIME
Waited years to finally see Cher. We had 3 generations (my mom lives in another state or she would of been there) and not one of us were disappointed. She made me feel like I was young again watching her on TV. The show was like watching a Broadway show. I have been to thousands of concerts but this is one of my favorites. And she once lived in Burleson, that was pretty cool. Forever the Queen.
Kathy, super CHER fan forever from Petaluma Ca
FIRST CHER CONCERT
Over all lots of people, but loved every minute of it! Would of loved more old school songs, but that's why I listen to CDs and My old records- my daughter surprised me for my 50th b'day, we used to dance to their songs when she was a baby, and she remembered I loved CHER! Love my amazing daughter Mackenzie! Gotta love that she remembered my love of SNC, but mostly CHER ❤
Shylo- Manitowoc WI from Milwaukee, Wisconsin
FIRST TIME AT THE FISERV FOR A CONCERT
When seated straight across from the stage (228) and the large screen on stage does not show what is on stage..... the smaller screens on each side of the stage do nothing for us! I am more disappointed with the size of the screens at the Fiserv. Summerfest screens are larger and more plentiful and provide an ample back up for those who are not immediately in front of the stage. VERY disappointed with this venue who should have thought of everything when spending that kind of money! The 4 stars are for Cher----the venue should get a 1.
Robin from Omaha, Nebraska
I LOVE HER NO MATTER WHAT!!
Ok. I'm being truthful. I seen her 14 years ago here in Omaha and that show at almost 60, was phenomenal. This concert was still fantastic, however, I did not expect her to lip sync. And, you can argue that she didn't, but technical difficulties proved otherwise. I know she's 73. I was just surprised. The transition between songs was so awkward and so long. The videos were abundant. The song choices were strange, not understanding this obsession to sing all ABBA's songs on this new album and 3 at the concert. I personally dislike Abba. She has enough of her own amazing songs to sing. It ended as awkward with just a hand shake. I understand her age, but she's the queen. Come on! The one thing I will say is that she looks AMAZING!! Lord, please let me be so sexy at 73 years old.
Erin Thomas from Vancouver, British Columbia
FOR 73 SHE'S STILL GOT IT.
Enjoyed the show the first act was uplifting and motivating to get the crowd going. Cher was really good and proves that she still has class and style. She still has her same voice no different and did not disappoint. Her team was entertaining between her fabulous costume changes. I was glad I saw the show. You go girl. For 73 she rocked it!
Richard Hansen from Las Vegas, Nevada
Cher in LV, okay we're in! We get great seats and paid for it, granted. It was our first time seeing her live. We sat, and sat,and sat,....and sat. We were on time, but where was Cher? 45 minutes plus and finally the lights went down. Funny thing was, I think the audience was having more fun enjoying the Bee Gees' song than to have to wait for "the show". A number of people were saying their were walking out. The first song happens and there she is in front of all of us. Then, we get to hear 'a story', a long, unimportant story of name dropping, and more name dropping, and a long personal important part of her life (to her). Were we there to hear her speak or lecture? We we're not going to ever no why the show didn't start on time. We were not going to ever get those 45 minutes back. We were going to accept that we paid a dear price and enjoy what few songs were going to fit in what was left on the time clock before the end of the show. She never introduced her backup people. Those people filled and completed the performance. Never have I ever witnessed a lead performer not introduced their back up people. Since it was the first and only concert with Cher, it was fun to see her live. She should have remembered her first shows years ago when they were hungry. Even though they have performed "it" thousands of times, the audience came to see it fresh, new, and not familiar. Imagine meeting that special person for the first time. That is the feeling a performer needs to put across to their audience every time they step on the stage. Never met her, never saw her live. We came to hear her sing. She did. Should have been on time and limited the talk to her backstage friends... not her audience. A lot of us never saw her perform before. We were taken advantage of on Saturday the 24th. Like the story of the $28k, hopefully we paid the bill.

CHER APRIL 22, 2019 SCOTIABANK ARENA TORONTO
So I'm giving 4 stars because this was the first time I've seen her live and I'm a huge fan and have been since I was old enough to watch sonny and Cher. I enjoyed Cher and Chic. Love you Cher, but I have to agree with some of the bad comments here. Cher, you have incredible vocals use them more. The song choices could have been better, you know your older hits that are classics. When the show ended I was in total shock could have been another encore. A thank you Toronto and goodnite would have been wonderful. But .... still love you Cher!
Jane L from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
GREAT VOICE BUT CHALLENGES
Cher’s voice is amazing still in her 70s, and her show was great. Chic was on stage too long at one hour, too long to wait for main show, venue poor for a show like this. When considering all aspects, left feeling a bit disappointed
from Toronto, Ontario
CHER CONCERT SCOTIABANK ARENA
Cher is still an amazing singer and performer. Loved her show and her amazing costumes. Great dancers and aerial performers were great. Cher is 73 years young and can still pack a bunch on stage.
Bruce c from Cleveland, Ohio
NOT WORTH THE MONEY
Cher barely sang an hour, if your into watching dancers and videos of her singing her hits maybe you should have stayed home and watched MTV. The last time I saw her and it was 17 years ago she was spectacular, time has passed her bye and all she did was take our money. She still has a great voice too bad she didnt use it more for us at the Q.
GC from Toronto, Ontario
Having been to a few of Cher's concerts I was very disappointed with this one. There was a major sound issue. Cher's back up singers were louder then she was, at times I couldn't even hear her. Even thou I was in section 103, I could not see much of anything due to the stage set up. Saying all of that, I still love Cher but felt I over paid for the concert and will not attend anymore.
PR from Toronto, Ontario
CHER TORONTO CONCERT
Too many costumes changes, not impressed having-to watch videos or dancers until she came back out. Cher has so many iconic songs, so was totally disappointed she sang 3 ABBA songs.. paid to hear Cher songs. Not even a goodbye Toronto,, people were thinking she would at least do an encore..but no, we got a wave goodbye and the. The lights came on
Sally from Toronto, Ontario
I found the concert boring and she barely moved. She is 73 and still in great shape but her age showed. I would not attend another concert of hers. It felt too much like a production about Cher and not really a concert. The sound was horrible and I think she was lip syncing. Disappointing.
Debbie Rees from Toronto, Ontario
Saved up to go to this concert, what a disappointment the sound was awful couldn't hear Cher. her lead guitarist was way to loud lots of vibrations I don't remember any of her song having all that guitar. won't go back or change her sound system
Greg from Buffalo, New York
First, I would like to say the stage setup was amazing and we were near the center on the floor so the sound was great also. I was disappointed because I paid to see Cher sing, live, not watch music videos which I can do on YouTube for free. She spent a good part of the show telling stories and telling us how great she is. She did not sing, live, for a good portion of the show. She has a killer voice! I just wish I could have heard more of it. I also went to see Elton John a few years ago and he played for 3-1/2 hours! Granted, he is a year younger than Cher, but still... This concert reminded me of the movie Office Space and the interview that Peter Gibbons had with the Bobs where he explains that in a given week, he only does 15 minutes of actual work. That's about what Cher did. Her outfits were amazing and I realize it takes time to change into them but still, we would rather have heard her sing.
Patsy from Boston, Massachusetts
Saw her 5 years ago, fantastic.. This time I was disappointed. Had to wait, too much talking and lousy ending. She just left the stage, lights went on and it was over. Like WOW is that it?She still looks great,
Mark from Boston, Massachusetts
We waited 30 minutes after the warm up band finished for Cher to come out. She didn't seem too engaged. Cher told a story that went in many directions and went on too long. She has so many songs of her own but sang other performers songs. Her agility on stage appeared limited but I guess that comes with age. She was on stage for an hour and a half and some of it spent talking. The ending was bad with bad, just a wave, nobody knew if it was really over or not. It was my first time seeing her live. I should have gone when she was more in her prime. Still love her songs..................
Mary Lee Pagliaroli from Buffalo, New York
SEEN IT BEFORE - 16 YEARS AGO
I love Cher, & was excited to see her again. Last time was her "Farewell Tour" in 2003. The show was great, but a lot of it was exactly the same as it was 16 years ago! I can't believe the show hasn't changed much since then... Disappointed it was too short & had a lot of filler. I felt like she is calling it in. She's still fabulous, but it's like she doesn't have to try anymore.
C Stewart from Eugene, Oregon
WOW....NOT WHAT I WAS EXPECTING!
I was so excited to see Cher....have loved her for years but so disappointed!! I figured I would be standing up the whole time singing along with her as she sang hit after hit....I was so wrong! I didnt stand up once....and the hits were few. The music and backup singers over powered her the majority of the time. Too much of everything else...dancers,costume changes and just not enough songs. Dont get why she had to lip sync either when all she did was walk back and forth on the stage. When she was done....she just walked off with a little wave and that was it!!! Anyway...over all I'm glad I saw her and she looked great for 73 but that doesnt mean you need to have another comeback tour. Still a fan but the experience was not what I hoping for!
Greg from Toronto, Ontario
DIDN’T SAY THANKS
Would have been nice if she had at least acknowledged e crowd that paid good money to see her. No — just disappeared at the end.
John Williams from Jacksonville, Florida
$400 DOWN THE DRAIN...
On a scale of 1 - 10, I'll give the Cher concert a 3. Had floor seat, lots of drunks spilling drinks etc.. Poor song choices, to few songs, super long break between warm-up band and main event. long costume change times and poor ending. Was more like a musical you would see at a dinner theater. Will not see another of her concerts.
Matthew from Columbus, Ohio
LAST TIME I WILL SEE CHER
I have seen Cher many times and usually I am very impressed. This time she clearly called it in! Songs did not go together. She wasted a long time talking about the same stories she has told over and over again. The ending was terrible. We always know she will do Believe but she normally comes back out for a final song where she gets on a lift and goes over the audience. Not this time! As I mentioned earlier, she is calling it in but still taking our money. No longer for me. I will see high energy acts like Taylor, Pink, or Ariana!
Michael from Buffalo, New York
Cher was tired out she barely sang an hour and did not do some of her classics she talked about the same things as she did in the past shows I have seen, I paid for the best floor seats FL5 when I purchased my tickets back in October I talked to people last night that just got in the 4th row on the floor up front, many drunks spilling drinks not a good experience. I do hope this her final farewell because it is mine. I do love Cher but I thought Chic did a better job
Jane Bussy from Omaha, Nebraska
NOT A TOUR IF NOT LIVE SINGING
Wow I am shocked to pay $78 to watch Cher lip sync. Not a tour if not live singing. I don’t expect her to do things she did in the past but this seems like taking advantage of peoples time & money. On top of the lip syncing they played numerous videos of her and acts where it was her dancers & she was not on stage probably in costume change. Came on 30 minutes late too. This is the first bad review I have left ever for a musician. I would rather she tour with another person & sing rather than see this mini non live musical of her career. Yikes no wonder resales of tix I noticed were 1/2 price of tix cost. Sad.
Carol from Omaha, Nebraska
I love Cher but this was a disappointment. The mediocre lead band (called Chic) went on for almost an hour. Sound quality was bad, and the woman whose solos were primarily her screaming needs to get a voice coach or find another career. Then, we waited 45 minutes with no announcements or anything - I think it was to set up stage. Sets were wonderful but overdone. It would’ve been better if she spent more time singing. She sang 3 ABBA songs that didn’t suit her at all. Her band and backup singers was too loud - between that and the poor sound quality we rarely heard her voice.
DRL from Las Vegas, Nevada
Cher was late starting the show, appeared to have slurred speech when she was telling old stories. She still has a great voice from what I could tell but this show was not worth $300.00. I really felt cheated. In addition, a you g woman and her 2 male companions were descriptive using the small area for seating to dance. I was struck by the young woman several times and when she would return to her seat she would nearly sit on her drink. I opted to leave 45 minutes into the performance. A total waste of time and money. I think Cher needs to seriously retire. She looks great and I love the time she and Sonny performed together. I did not spend $300 to see how videos and audios of time past.
Perri b. from Toronto, Ontario
DISAPPOINTING AS ALL HECK
opening act was great. cher was 50 minutes late coming on and then did very back lip syncing to 2 songs, kind of hiding behind the dancers. then she proceeded to blab on and on about some stupid story... so we left. awful show.
John S from Boston, Massachusetts
15 SONGS? NOT WORTH THE MONEY.
CHER is an icon and legend for sure. Cher has recorded 26 albums and 4 soundtracks. Not to mention the Sonny and Cher records. Paying that kind of money to see her perform only 15 songs is not worth it. After the first two songs, she spent 15-20 minutes telling a long story before doing another song. Too many videos, costume changes and talking. Not enough songs. With the catalog of songs she has, 15 songs is not right. I'm sorry. I'm a fan just like a lot of people but for what she charged, expected much more.
S Marie Molnar from Houston, Texas
TOO FEW CHER HITS, TOO MUCH ABBA
If I wanted to hear ABBA, I’d see ABBA. Marc Cohn? Ditto. Opening act was TOOO long. Intermission was TOOO long. TOOO few Cher hits, way too much filler. Cher chatting, Cher videos, Cher doing covers of others. Overall, disappointing.
Elephants 2019 from Austin, TX
CHER SAN ANTONIO ATT CENTER
Agree with a previous reviewer. 45 minutes between warm up band and Cher. Strange song choices, lots of drunk people hooting, UGH! Venue was a hot mess and security overwhelmed with people acting badly. SAD. Last time @ATT Center. Save your $. Wish I could get a refund.
Kelly Kane from Las Vegas, Nevada
We so looked forward to seeing the iconic Cher in LV Feb. 19. She was late, gave a vague excuse about a costume malfunction, then had another one during the show. She's still a legend, but I would have preferred to remember her as the big-hearted performer who once gave the audience more--an obvious love of singing and dancing.
Marcie Sanders from Las Vegas, Nevada
CHER AT PARK MGM LAST SATURDAY NIGHT
She didn't come on until 8:45 and it was to start at 8:00. Never welcomed crowd just talked about how great she was at 73. Sang about 35 minutes total, lots of video and dancers. She looked bored to death. At $550 for two tickets felt ripped off and i was a big cher fan. Time for her to give it up and go out on good note not some washed up old lady
Chris from Chatham Ont
This was on my sisters and my bucket list! It was terrible! Travelled to TO to see backup dancers, trapeze artists and old pictures of her and Sonny! She hardly sang anything! Not even all her own songs! Couldnt see her even on big screens. Just dancers! Didnt say thanks for coming. goodbye or anything! She wasnt on stage for 45 minutes all combined! Very disappointed . Never again!
Brian from Portland, Oregon
CHER AT MODA 11/19/19
Have always loved seeing her, but last night was painful at times. We were in the 4th row on the floor, and she clearly looked exhausted at the beginning of the show. She could not time her lip syncing with the first two songs, and then proceeded with a nonsensical rambling and name dropping monologue for an extended period. We thought she was about to have a Judy Garland moment and drop out onto the stage. As the show progressed, she seemed to surprisingly perk back up and actually began to sing over the background track. She skipped some of her most iconic songs, and the show seemed very disjointed. The highlight was Nile Rogers and Chic for the opening.
Christina Hoencke from San Francisco, California
I have seen Cher 3 times before. Her show at the Chase Event Center was so bad it brought me to tears. I was sitting 2 rows from the top so I had awful seats to begin with, but never did i expect to not even be able to at least see her on a screen. I will not pay to see her again.
FormerCherFan from Toronto, Ontario
Started the show with a rambling monologue never interacting or appreciating the audience. She never introduced her band or dancers either. Too much lip synching, she was off stage more than on and appeared late without apology. I was a big fan until I saw this indifferent, lacklustre, money-grab of a mediocre production.
Rob and val from Toronto, Ontario
WORSE SHOW OF ALL TIME
paid a lot of money to watch someone lipsinc (badly), arrive really late , showed no respect to the audience,and blabbered on for 20 minutes about who knows what. $500 we will never see again
Shawna from Brockton, Massachusetts
NOT HER SONGS!
It was bad. Really bad. Why did she sing SO MANY songs that were not hers? Why did she take up so much of the show bragging about her legs, her rise to the top, etc.? Sound was poor, but that's to be expected at TD so I don't totally blame her for that. The crowd was terrible, surprising that she attracts that many with such low class spilling drinks all over the place.
Gordon from Houston, Texas
WASTE OF GOOD MONEY
At times it looked like she was lip sinking. More time in costume changing and dancers that Cher singing. She did not sing some of her top songs and I definitely feel cheated!
