Cher Live in Monte Carlo in 1980!

You simply won't believe how this concert opens so I won't spoil it. This was Cher's triumphant 'Take Me Home Tour' - with the first top 40 hit since her days with Sonny, she had a concert act that was relevant again.

Cher performs a lot of covers but then she had a way of making any song her own, with rich arrangements that occasionally went against the grain of the original, as you'll hear in the Three Dog Night tune 'Easy to Be Hard'. This being the tail end of the disco era you'll experience lots of brassy syncopated rhythms and dancers in black rayon pants.

And Cher doesn't cover any of her earlier hits at all!
