     The extraordinary production, aptly titled "Cher," is a high-energy,
 concert-style show that features the artist's record-breaking hits,
 including "If I Could Turn Back Time," "Believe" and "Strong Enough." With
 her infamous rock-and-roll attitude and theatrical affinity, the show
 treats guests to an intimate look back through Cher's iconic career, with
 vintage footage of rarely-seen "Sonny and Cher" clips and a marvelous stage
 that alters its scenery for every song and mood.
 
     "If you thought my other shows were exciting, just wait until you see
 this one," exclaimed Cher. "This show is me ... but bigger. It takes some
 of my favorite elements from my touring shows and kicks them up a notch."
 
     Designed exclusively for the 4,300-seat Colosseum at Caesars Palace,
 Cher boasts the talents of choreographer and director Doriana Sanchez, who
 brings Cher's vision to life using 18 dancers and aerialists,
 state-of-the-art video and special effects, and ambitious set designs. Not
 surprisingly, audience members can expect to be blown away by Cher's
 signature breathtaking costumes, which were designed by the world-renowned
 fashion icon Bob Mackie.
 
     "We knew there was going to be a high demand for this show, but the
 response has been truly overwhelming," said John Meglen, co-CEO and
 president of AEG Live/Concerts West. "All of us at AEG Live thank the fans,
 our partners and the city of Las Vegas for the support of this project and
 congratulate Cher and her team on this well-deserved success."
 
     "It is a true pleasure to welcome Cher back to Caesars Palace," said
 Gary Selesner, president of Caesars Palace. "Over the decades, Cher and
 Caesars Palace have both evolved as icons, yet remained fresh and relevant
 in the public eye. The staging, the costumes, the dancers and effects,
 combined with the talent and presence of the one and only Cher, make this
 our latest must-see show. Joining Bette Midler, Elton John and Jerry
 Seinfeld, Caesars Palace unquestionably hosts Las Vegas' best entertainment
 lineup."
 
     Tickets for performances of Cher through October are now on sale. The
 pop diva has also added three additional show dates (August 6, 7,10), for
 which tickets will go on sale May 8. The 90-minute show is presented at
