Pop Culture Reviews Cher's 'Dressed To Kill Tour' Show #3. Plus This Week's Billboard Chart Positions

Cher live in Dallas, 2014
Cher's second Texas - this time in Dallas - and third overall gig of her 'Dressed To Kill Tour' was reviewed by Pop Culture's Tiney Ricciardi:

“Hello? Can you hear me?”

Cher’s voice resonated from behind a curtain at a packed American Airlines Center in Dallas. Due to audio difficulties, the pop legend had been standing in costume for 25 minutes waiting for the show to start, and she didn’t seem enthused.

The fans, on the other hand, were anxiously squirming. That Wednesday night show was, most likely, the last opportunity they would get to see Cher in concert on what she would later call her “new and improved farewell, farewell tour.”

"All right, well, this is the beginning of the magical mystery circus..."

Monday night, Cher took the stage at Toyota Center on her second stop on the "Dressed to Kill" final farewell tour. It really will be a shame if this is her goodbye to the stage, because at age 67, she absolutely kicked the sh-t out of it.

Cher Alters 'Dressed To Kill Tour' Outfit and Set-List For Show Number Two, In Houston

Cher just completed show number two of her 'Dressed To Kill Tour', in Houston, Texas.

After kicking-off her 'Dressed To Kill Tour in Phoenix, Arizona two nights before, Cher performed show number two of its 49 dates at Houston, Texas' Toyota Center within the last hours.

Evidently, Cher was unhappy with the striking predominantly-pink glam-rock costume that she wore to sing 'Believe' on the tour's first night as it was traded tonight for a sheer silver number (that she previously donned during her 2008-2011 'Cher At The Colosseum' Las Vegas residency, though with a different wig).
