Things I Learned at a Cher Concert

2 Apr

Last night, my wife and I saw Cher in concert. As the performer said, it is her farewell farewell tour. We went because Cher is a legendary entertainer who has been famous for about 50 years. Some people should be seen for the experience, and, in my opinion, Cher is one of them.

I was not sure how good the concert would be, but it turned out to be awesome. Cher put on an extravaganza with dancers, stage props, outrageous costumes and videos of her performing history. However, Cher was not the only great thing about the show. Pat Benetar was the opening act and totally rocked it out.

Looking back on the concert, I am glad that we went. It was a show not to be missed. However, it also was an educational experience. I learned a few things. In fact, here are the things I learned at a Cher concert.

Before Lady Gaga, there was Madonna. Before Madonna, there was Cher, who was truly original.

Pat Benatar and her husband, Spyder Giraldo, can put on a Rock n’ Roll show that will compare to anyone.

People with oxygen tanks like to go to concerts, too.

Cher and I have something in common. We both saw Elvis Presley in concert when we were kids.

Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves” is still Cher’s best song.

At age 67, Cher can still wear her get-up from the “humping the battleship” video.Cher Battleship

My wife gets upset when more men look at me than look at her.

There is always one guy in a section who insists on standing up while everyone else is sitting down. It does not just happen at football games.

Cher almost got arrested at Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge.

When someone is sitting in your seats by mistake, their excuse is that someone in the band gave them the tickets.

Native Americans cannot even get a break at a Cher concert. (I know. I know. Cher is part Cherokee.)Cher Headdress

Anyone who thinks 80s music is bad is an imbecile.

    Glad it was a good show. Hasn’t she been on her farewell tour for the last 15 years? Or is that just KISS?

    Pat and Spyder still play small rooms all over the place. it’s just a question of when they’ll come down to a ticket price that I’m willing to pay.

      I would like to see Pat and Spyder in a smaller venue. However, I have to see Joan Jett in any venue.

    Your post made me want to go to a Cher concert — she was the It Girl of my teen years — so I looked up her concert schedule. Sadly, I already have plans for this Saturday, when she’ll be in DC. Thanks for the stroll through memory lane.

      You’re welcome. I’m glad you enjoyed the post. If you get another chance, then you really need to see her.

      Fleetwood Mac puts on a good show. I still have a crush on Stevie Nicks.
