She's back for another dose of Vegas

It has been close to a year since Robin Leach first blogged about rumors that Cher would be joining Elton John and Bette Midler as a headliner at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace. Even before the Midler show was announced, Cher's name was in the mix. Now, with Midler's "The Showgirl Must Go On" opening February 20, the official announcement of Cher's residency was finally made.

Cher last said goodbye to Las Vegas an epic four times on her "farewell" tour between 2002 and 2005. Cher's drawing power is going to be tested starting May 6 with 200 shows set to take place over the next three years, with prices ranging from $95 to $250. If things go well, expect more shows to be added, because as the Review-Journal's Mike Weatherford notes, "The first stint that runs through May 31 offers four shows per week, leaving room for the singer to add more if she chooses."
