Actually, there's still a chance she could be filling on weeks not being filled by Elton John, as the Divine Miss M isn't doing as many weeks a years as Celine's show has done. Elton isn't going to increase the number of shows he's doing there a year, and Cher's name (much like with Bette's) has been circling around Vegas for months now as well (then again, so has Michael Jackson's). Maybe they can get Wayne Newton to do some dates when Bette or Elton aren't in residence?  duck . Of course they could always just fill those weeks in with Jerry Seinfeld or some other comedians.

Will I go see her show? Maybe if I were comped some tickets. There's not really many shows out there (currently or on the horizon) that I want to see. Other than "Love", Penn & Teller, or if the Golden Nugget has someone Old School Vegas (Still think we should have taken in Don Rickles that Saturday night) performing while I'm there and maybe that Rat Pack tribute show over at the Greek Isles, there's nothing really in terms of shows I want to see while in Vegas (With the exception of those shows like Jubilee, Le Femme or Folies Bergere [Pretty much any show with boobs and feathers]). I'm sure folks really plan their trip to Vegas around going to see Carrot Top or Louie Anderson.

yeah, i've read that, too, but it wont be the full blown Cher-du-Soleil extravaganza that was planned. it'll be light something along the lines of Cher-lite. which is a shame. Cher really did put on a series of good concerts in 1999/2000 and 2002 - 2005. it would have been great to see what she did then expanded to a lot larger scale.

Stevie Nicks has said after this summer she's going to take at least a year off from touring. but rumors in her camp/fan clubs, etc. say that Caesar's has been after her to expand her series of 4 series of shows 3 times a year to eight show - two week engagements happening 4 times a year. apparently she's been quite the popular sell.

despite the price tag, Bette Midler really does put on a show worth the money.

I agree (although Celine sings better en Francais, then in English) whole heartedly. Bette is better, by far.

Quoting STLGph (Reply 12):

I am no up-to-date Mo (membership is always up for review every year), but Bette has it over Celine, everytime. She has had the gays from day one (look at where she got her start). Celine, well, she grew into the gays. She won them over by her "diva-ness".

Bette is timeless, no matter how old you are.

she has the better mouth, that's for damn sure.

Celine just stands there and talks about how important her son is to her and how blessed motherhood is and the most important thing she has ever done is start a family and loves to devote *every spare moment of her life to them* teaching them "the blessings that the world has given her life."

which of course is why she has 3 nannies.

makes me want to vomit. and never drive another Chrysler again.

Bette Midler is downright hysterical. nothing less than that. i saw her on tour in a couple of cities a couple of times and she was able to work different neighborhoods, types, colleges, sports teams, and even facts about the arena parking into her shows. Celine Dion wouldn't be able to find her way to the tinkle room if someone wouldn't have held her hand and lead the way.

Both Bette and Babs get played on Siriusly Sinatra Channel 75 (Formerly known as Standard Time) every so often, and while the arrangements for some of the old standards work, I heard Bette's version of "Miss Otis Regrets" and that song should never be arranged in the boogie-woogie style like her version is done (I guess my preference for the Kirsty MacColl version of the song makes any other version not anywhere close to it seem awful.).
