Just when you thought it was safe to go to Vegas

Las Vegas, home of such wonderful events such as Def Con, the Star Trek Experience, the recreation of most of the world's most incredible monuments, 8 out of 10 of Britney Spears' marriages, and National Lampoon's Vegas Vacation, the least bad of the recent National Lampoon movies. However, just as Sin City was becoming a safe and lovable place to take the kids, terrifying news has hit the interwebs. It seems that they will soon be selling Cher tickets at Ceasar's Palace.

Following what Wikipedia reports as her 4 year long series of "Farewell Tours" - (which resulted in several lawsuits from people who bought tickets to early shows at outrageous prices, being told that this would be the last chance they had to see Cher in concert, only to have her return to town a few years later on the same never-ending "Farewell Tour". In fact, it kept going on so long that they renamed it the "Never say goodbye" tour - since Cher refused to leave. (It's amazing what you can learn on Wikipedia.)

Well, it seems that those same ticket buyers might have more reasons to sue, since Cher is going to be performing well into her golden years in Las Vegas, Nevada. She's 61, and the contract, according to Wikipedia, last into the next 3 years.

Now, why would a straight, married 30 year old man be writing about Cher? Well - because this post is brought to you by the people promoting the show, of course. Looks like I won't be going to Vegas any time soon. Not that I really planned on it anyway.

Add to any service

Every artist now has a farewell tour, the Rolling Stones have a farewell tour every few years. When P. Diddy (not sure if that's his name right now) has a farewell tour, that will probably be the longest farewell tour because it will not end. Cher is not done for a long time in her tours and shows, she loves the crowd too much.
