Oprah, Tina and Cher, Oh My!


An astute reader alerted me to this notice on Oprah's site that she's filming a show with Cher and Tina Turner in Vegas on 4/26 -- presumably at the Colosseum? -- and is taking requests for studio tickets. It's interesting that she's doing Cher and TINA and not Cher and Bette, isn't it? I mean, what connection does Tina Turner presently have to Las Vegas? Hmmm... For that matter, when was the last time Oprah shot in Vegas? Anyone know?

I know that Oprah filmed in Vegas 5+ years ago for the opening of A new day... It was an entire hour from The Colosseum on stage, backstage, and at Celine's house.

Not sure if she has been back. However, prior to the opening of The Showgirl Must Go On, Bette was on Oprah in the Chicago studio. And she didn't even get the entire hour.

Tina is a most interesting puzzle though. Perhaps she'll be doing some one-off week long gigs (ala Faith Hill, Gloria Estefan, et al). Surely if Tina were planning some type of Celine/Cher/Bette/Elton run...we would have heard - after all - the lid was sure tight on the Cher secret.

Perhaps Tina could even be a headliner for the future AEG venue. But, I can't see that being used now as a reason for an Oprah appearance. That is years away, and Tina will be years older by that point.

is it odd that they're taping this on a SATURDAY? I didn't realize Oprah worked on Saturdays...
