Pop veteran Cher is back at it again, announcing a Las Vegas residency called “Classic Cher.”


The eccentric 70-year-old is definitely not slowing down, with her show opening in February for three weeks in Vegas. She’ll then move to Maryland in March, and return again to Vegas in May.

The show will feature classic hits from the Oscar (Moonstruck, 1987) and Grammy winner, including “Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down),” “If I Could Turn Back Time,” and “Believe.”

“You try to take the most important things from each decade and you try to distill them into a story about yourself,” Cher explained in an interview. “You try to do it with film clips and music and movement and costume and then you make it as entertaining as you can.”

Despite having performed on stage thousands of times, Cher still admits to suffering from stage fright. “I’m like ‘I want my mother’ but then you go on … and then you go ‘This isn’t quite as bad as I thought’ and then when the end of the first song happens, it’s like, ‘ok, this is kind of good’ and then it gets better and better.”
