"CHER:LIVE IN LAS VEGAS 1999. Finally Cher at her absolute best. If you are not a Cher fan and want to know why this woman has had a career that has spanned four decades--buy this video tape and it will all be clear to you. Over the years this author has seen cher in concert over ten times--her 1999 concert is her absolute best musical outing. It's all here--film clips, TV show clips, video clips and just about all of the songs. There's "Halfbreed" "Dark Lady" and "Gypsies Tramps & Thieves"--tunes Cher has refused to sing until this year! Theres all the 80's power rock stuff "If I Could Turn Back Time" "I Found Someone" and "We ALL Sleep Alone." Theres DISCO CHER "Take Me Home," COUNTRY CHER "Just Like Jesse James" "Walkin' In Memphis." There's BALLAD CHER "The Way Of Love" "After All," KITSCH CHER "It's In His Kiss," and MILLENIUM CHER "Believe" "All Or Nothing" and "Strong Enough" The only thing missing from this comprehensive career overview is the singer's two 1960's hits "I Got You Babe" and "The Beat Goes On"--but you get to hear those while the video clips are playing! At 52, this woman looks and sounds wonderful--an inspiration to one and all."

"OK, I finally admit it --- I've been a Cher fan ever since the days of the top-rated Sonny & Cher show, which aired on CBS in the early 1970's. Each week, I looked forward to Cher's latest Bob Mackie creations, her lushly-orchestrated musical numbers and even Sonny Bono's bad jokes. Cher has always been the first to admit that she's not the greatest singer in the world and that's probably true. But she is, without a doubt, one of the foremost entertainers in show business. This DVD of her sellout 1999 concert at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas is, in my opinion, the highlight of Cher's long, illustrious career. I was actually surprised to find that it was so good. Not only is Cher in the most -incredible- voice of her career at this concert, she looks better than ever and puts on a show that will leave your heart pounding with excitement. It must have cost zillions to mount this lavish production but you can clearly see and hear every penny that was spent. Even if you are not a Cher fan, you will love this video simply for it's immense production values. It's fitting that this spectacular show was performed at the MGM, three letters which have stood for the finest in quality entertainment since 1924. "Do it big, do it right, give it class" -- this was an MGM rule in the old days and Cher's sensational show at the MGM Grand certainly lives up to that standard. Packed with spectacle and song, this DVD is a bargain at -any- price but it's a fantastic value here at Amazon.com. So go for it. You will not be disappointed. After watching this video, you'll enthusiastically proclaim, "Wow! That's entertainment!""
I believe in Cher!

"I saw this on TV prior to getting the DVD, but watching it on DVD is nothing short of amazing..the sound and picture quality blows me away..I've watched this twice already and I just got it!Her fashion sense is great, she changes into a lot of different wigs throughout the show and beautiful costumes. Her dancers are eye appealing, very interesting to watch their costume changes and what dance routines they have in store for each song..All of the songs Cher sings are classics, she sounds great..there are songs that everyone loves, including 'Believe' which brought her back to the charts, We All Sleep Alone, All Or Nothing, If I Could Turn Back Time..and so much more. There are so many reasons why this concert is one of the greatest that can be found on DVD..I would definately recommend this to anyone, even if you are not a big Cher fan, I'm sure that you would enjoy her spectacular display all the same."

"I got the rare opportunity to see her "Believe Tour" in Minneapolis in 1999. I sat only ten rows away from the stage. Cher was amazing! Though there's nothing like live experience, this DVD still features the Las Vegas concert wonderfully. The elaborate stage settings and the numerous costumes are amazing. Such energy gives her music and her show the extra enjoyment. She opens the show with "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For". It lives up to the original U2 version. From that song to the end, there's never a dull moment. The film clippings from her past interviews, performances, music videos, movies, and the "Sonny And Cher Show" are enjoyable. They show more of how she's evolved from "Gypsies, Tramps, And Thieves" to the Grammy-winning "Believe". Besides her stage presence, her voice is amazing. Such concert quality makes this DVD worth watching several times. This is important material for any Cher fan to include in their collection."
