"Cher has been singing for over 40 years and she did it very good and I think that she'll continue doing it. So in 2002 she decided to start what it was going to be her Farewell Tour.
This show is similar as her 2000 Believe Tour but with more production and quality (with this I'm not saying that it was bad, it was very good actually but this is way much better).
On this show you can see Cher performing all her hits plus others that were on the program but weren't added to the final cut of the concert that was recorded in the American Airlines Arena in Miami Beach. As every Cher show you'll see lots of costumes changing, specail effects, lots of dancers and all Cher's Extravaganza. She has been very clever doing it now that she can do it very good without showing weakness of any kind.
Some of the songs here are her #1's "Gypsies, tramps and thieves", "Dark lady", "Half-breed" and "Believe" plus her other hits like "If I could turn back time", "Just like Jesse James", "I found someone" and "Song for the lonely".
She covered once again as the opening number U2's "I still haven't found what I'm looking for" (which honestly sounds better on her).
And finally among the special features you'll find the new "If I could turn back time" video, 3 extra live songs, Cher's special version of West Side Story (not big deal) and behind the scenes.
Very good Cher you did it again."
Excellent performance, I was pleasantly surprised

"I went into watching this concert with some reservation, but was pleasantly surprised. Cher's costume changes, and impressive songlist make this a must-own DVD. The only song I don't think she should include is the U2 cover of "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For", this song does not work for Cher.
I thoroughly enjoyed the 'history' part of the show where Cher
dresses like she did in the 70's and performs her hits from then as part of a medley. Cher still looks exactly the same as she did, so dressing up like that really works well. I also loved it when the medley moved into her 1979 disco hit "take me Home". Cher appeared in a carbaret outfit for this, simply stunning! Then the song "The Way of Love" was performed, and Cher reappeared looking like she did in the mid 70's with very long straight black hair and an elegant slinky gown. This performance alone, is worth the price of the DVD.
If all of this wasn't enough, Cher does more costume changes for the "If I could turn back time" song, and yes, she really pulls this off beautifully.
Love her, or hate her, you cannot deny that Cher is one of the true survivors. I have the utmost respect for an artist that continually reinvents themselves, but does not forget any of their past.
This concert is an absolute pleasure to watch. I highly recommend it to see how a true performer puts on a show. Well done Cher. I only wish the concert was longer."

"My husband is the real Cher fan of the family, so I bought this DVD for him. However, I enjoyed this concert at least as much as he did. They do this incredible thing of showing her singing side by side with herself of 40 years ago. I had a huge emotional reaction to several of the older clips that were shown, alternating between laughter and tears. Cher is shown singing with Sonny, including the reunion on the late night talk show. This concert is one of the best concerts that we have seen on DVD. In her Farewell Tour, she is going out like she came in: funny, beautiful, flashy, sexy and energetic. Thank you, Cher, for forty wonderful years. We will miss you."
