Cher Cancels Remainder of 2008 Caesars Palace Shows
During sporadic dates last month (Sept 2008), Caesars Palace headliner Cher canceled several shows due to illness.
This week, AEG, producers of her Vegas show, issued a statement that because of asthma-related bronchitis, the legendary singer is canceling all remaining shows at The Colosseum for 2008.
Blaming the combination of dry desert air and extreme air conditioning within the hotels, also known as “Vegas Throat,” Cher says the illness has forced her to cancel the shows, but that she looks forward to new shows at the beginning of next year.
For those holding tickets to any 2008 canceled show, the following options exist:
- Ticket holders can exchange their tickets for a future performance of Cher at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, subject to availability. To exchange for a future performance, ticket holders must turn in the actual tickets at The Colosseum Box Office, or call Ticketmaster at 866.510.CHER (2437).
- Tickets purchased with a credit card for the canceled performance will be automatically refunded. Those who purchased tickets with cash can present tickets at the original point of sale for a refund. Ticket holders who purchased through Ticketmaster may call 866.510.CHER (2437).
- Ticket holders will not need to redeem tickets for a refund unless purchased with cash at The Colosseum Box Office. Any cash transactions will only be refunded with the redemption of the original tickets. All credit card orders will automatically be refunded to the credit card used for purchase.
Cher began headlining the 4,100-seat Colosseum in Caesars Palace in May 2008 for what was to be approximately 200 shows over three years. The 90-minute show was to be presented four nights a week through 2011.
According to Caesars Palace, no new show dates have been slated yet for 2009.
