Bette Midler Ends Her Las Vegas Run But Cher To Return

LAS VEGAS (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Bette Midler has announced that the final performance of "The Showgirl Must Go On," her two-year Las Vegas residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace will take place on January 31st, 2010.

At the end of the run, Midler will have performed 300 shows (that's 5 a week.) According to Billboard, Midler has moved more than 440,000 tickets in that two-year span with a gross sales figure topping $60 million.

"Bette is one of the most talented, hard working professionals in the business and we would have loved for her to stay longer, said John Meglen, co-CEO and
President of AEG Live/Concerts West. "All of us at AEG Live thank Bette and the entire cast, crew and staff for a great two year run at The Colosseum."
