Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Cher/Cyndi Lauper

When: Fri., May 2, 8 p.m. 2014

Plenty of musical acts have had impressive runs. But few can compare to Cher. The only artist to have a No. 1 single on the charts in each of the past six decades, Cher has never really experienced a decline in popularity. Even after her “farewell tour” in 2002 to 2005, she rebounded with a Las Vegas residency. Last year’s Closer to the Truth, the ostensible reason for the current tour, features the same kind of overproduced pop for which Cher is known. Expect to hear the album’s most popular tracks — “Woman’s World” and “Dressed to Kill” — at tonight’ show. But the the concert will also provide a retrospective of her career and include hits such as “I Got You Babe,” “Gypsys, Tramps & Thieves” and “Believe.” Eighties pop star Cyndi Lauper opens. While she’s not a diva on the same level as Cher, her career has gone through a real resurgence with the popularity of the Broadway play Kinky Boots, for which she wrote the music and lyrics.
