Cher on Stage
Cher struggled with stage fright early on, but her partnership with Sonny Bono greatly helped. In 1971, together, they earned the opportunity to have their own television program, The Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour. It was a critical success and earned Cher the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress – Television Series Musical or Comedy. After her initial solo career success, she built up the confidence to tour regularly for fans all over the world. Aside from performing on variety shows, Cher performs in grand music halls, theaters, and stadiums. In 1999, she sang “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the Super Bowl XXXIII. Later in the year, she released a television special Cher: Live in Concert – From the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. It was the highest rated original HBO program that year. In 2002, she launched on the Living Proof: The Farewell Tour. It was meant to be the final live concert tour of her career. The show featured over forty-nine shows and became the most successful tour ever by a woman. In 2013, she began performing live again where she headlined the annual Dance on the Pier benefit. She continues to sell out shows on her, albeit more brief, tours and festival headlines.
