LAS VEGAS and NATIONAL HARBOR, Md., Oct. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Cher, the Oscar, Emmy, Grammy and Golden Globe Award-winning Goddess of Pop, has partnered with AEG Live and MGM Resorts International to debut CLASSIC CHER, a series of special concerts exclusive to North America beginning February 2017. Known for extravagant stage spectacles, breathtaking costumes and dynamic performances, Cher will bring an all-new show featuring her chart-topping classics to MGM Resorts' newest live entertainment venues, Park Theater at Monte Carlo in Las Vegas and The Theater at MGM National Harbor in Maryland.

"I plan to make this my best show ever," said Cher. "I am extremely excited about both of these new theaters – they are state-of-the-art and beautiful."

Launching her career in the 1960s as part of Sonny & Cher, the iconic star made unprecedented strides in what had long been a male-dominated industry. A worldwide superstar for more than six decades, Cher has sold more than 100 million records and conquered more challenges than a handful of other talents combined – recording, concerts, film, Broadway acting, television and directing. Cher's three-year 325-show world "Farewell Tour" from 2003 to 2005 played to more than three million fans and became the most successful tour ever by any female artist. With CLASSIC CHER, she will continue that tradition in a specially designed production that can only be seen at Park Theater and The Theater at MGM National Harbor.

Richard Sturm, President of Entertainment, MGM Resorts International, said, "MGM Resorts is thrilled to welcome Cher back to our entertainment family with CLASSIC CHER. We have had a successful partnership with Cher and her team for more than 20 years and look forward to continuing this relationship at our two new venues. Cher is a true legend of the industry and this new relationship with her further cements MGM Resorts as the leader in live entertainment nationwide."
