'Tulsa World' Reviews Cher's "Impressive" Voice and "Incredible" Humor During Her "Remarkable" Stage Show!

Cher on her 'Dressed To Kill Tour'
Tulsa World's Jerry Wofford gave Cher's Tulsa gig last night a big thumbs up:

As the elaborate curtain still shrouded the massive stage with the lights still on, the unmistakable voice of Cher echoed through the BOK Center.

“Is this on?” she asked. Realizing it was, she went on talking about her blush and telling us to enjoy the show.

That was Cher’s carefree way to say hello Saturday night. And for her final, final farewell tour (wink wink), it was a preview of a wild, ornate and carefree show, spanning her long and storied career.

Cher during her 'Burlesque' set on her 'Dressed To Kill Tour'
Living legend Cher received acclaim yet again for her 'Dressed To Kill Tour - this time from Akansas Online's Jennifer Christman for last night's show at North Little Rock in the publication's native Arkansas:

Midway through her Dressed to Kill Tour stop at North Little Rock's Verizon Arena Friday night, Cher's distinctive warble had an emotional choke as she belted out "You Haven't Seen the Last of Me."

But we have seen the last of her, insists the 67-year-old singer who last visited central Arkansas during her so-called farewell tour back in 2002. And then again in 2003.

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.”

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).

azcentral Review Of Cher's 'Dressed To Kill Tour' First Show: The Night Was A Solid A+.

Cher on her 'Dressed To Kill Tour'
azcentral's Randy Cordova reviewed Cher's first tour performance since 2005...

It can't be easy being Cher. Fans don't expect her to simply strut around on stage and sing; they want a spectacle. Cher apparently sees this as a challenge, because the "Dressed to Kill" tour is bigger, stronger and shinier than her last outing, the so-called farewell tour that ended in 2005.

This tour launched in Phoenix on Saturday, March 22, to a sold-out US Airways Center. Opening act Pat Benatar went on 30 minutes late, meaning Cher didn't take the stage until after 10 p.m. The main attraction expressed some nerves about the show before she even appeared. Prior to the curtains opening, Cher's voice boomed out over the sound system: "When you grade this show, grade it on a f---ing curve!"

Cher Scores 31st Billboard Adult Contemporary Hit With 'I Hope You Find It'

Cher's 'I Hope You Find It' has entered Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart at #24.

'Closer To The Truth' ballad 'I Hope You Find It' has become the second single from the album to hit Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart - which consists of the most popular songs on US adult contemporary radio stations. It follows - and betters - first single 'Woman's World', which peaked at #28 on the chart last year.

The March 2014 début appearance of 'I Hope You Find' on the adult contemporary chart will come as a bit of a surprise to some due to its late arrival - the song was performed on US TV months ago between September and November 2013 on 'The Today Show', 'Late Show with David Letterman', 'Live with Kelly and Michael' and 'Dancing With The Stars', and in those months, became a hit single in Austria, Germany, Ireland, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
