Wednesday Briefs: Cher to end Vegas run; Alec Mapa to host benefit; and my favorite “Glee” number!
Sadly, her Las Vegas run will not last as long. The great star has announced that she will end her three-year run at Caesars Palace on February 5.
Cher will have performed approximately 200 shows during the course of her three years at The Colosseum at Ceasars Palace. Her schedule includes concerts from September 25 through the end of October, followed by a two-month break before the final round of shows get underway. The legendary performer will then perform 16 shows from January 11 through February 5.
Tickets will be on sale on September 25 beginning at 10:00am PDT. Prices are $95, $140, $175, and $250.
The hilarious Alec Mapa will host the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center’s “We Are Golden” benefit on Monday.
It is a night of music and dance produced by Open Artists with Open Arms and benefits LifeWorks, the Center’s youth development program.
The concert will feature Perry Farrell (Jane’s Addiction), Ab Soto, The Beat Freaks, Carmit, DJ Derek Monteiro, Guy B, Kyle Puccia and That Rogue Romeo.
For VIP ticket-holders, the evening will begin with an exclusive reception featuring a performance by Grammy winner and chart-topper Jody Watley (Looking For a New Love, I Want Your Love). The VIP reception, which is limited to 100 people, includes hosted cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. Opening for Watley will be Cassidy Haley.
