Share more of Cher next time please!

Bob Mackie's human Barbie Doll Cher appeared in all her spectacular glory at Arco Arena Friday night, decending from the rafters on a giant chandelier, a goddess in an enormous gold and silver encrusted, fur-lined hooded cape. She is beautiful, a living legend, a performer not to be missed and I was as excited as I could be to shoot this show. Cher was truly amazing.
This time we were allowed to shoot just ONE song. ONE single song while standing in the aisle way back at the sound board.
So just in case I brought the necessary gear to get (relatively) close up as well as my own portable/collapsible step stool to stand up on, and it sure helped. (Insert major %$*@#$%*&@!!#% here regarding the degree of difficulty shooting with all the *%$#@&!! tricky variables involved, but left unsaid.)
The interesting thing that I keep hearing people joke about is that this is billed as her Farewell Tour but it has been going on for three years and it's her third time in Sacramento too. The show stays the same but the costumes change each year, thanks to the remarkable costuming imagination of Bob Mackie.

One song? From the board?
Fucking Nazi's.

What a beautiful shot. I agree that Cher is breathtaking, but my attraction is tempered by the fact that she has been nipped, tucked, and retucked. OK, I'd have sex with her anyway but I wouldn't feel good about it and I would say 100 Hail Glorias repentance.
