BOSTON — Armenian-American pop legend, movie star and activist Cherilyn Sarkisian, also known by the single moniker Cher, performed at the TD Garden to a sell-put crowd on Sunday, April 28.

She opened up with her hits, Woman’s World, wearing a black and gold glittery Viking costume and a headdress sporting a long orange wig. Looking trim and healthy, the crowd stood for her grand entrance. Then came Strong Enough and You Haven’t Heard the Last of Me from her movie, “Burlesque.” Next was the Shoop, Shoop Song (It’s in His Kiss) and I Found Someone.

Changing costumes many times, she even came out on a mechanical elephant whose tusks lit up. Cher has never been known to be a plane Jane.

She then took on three ABBA songs from her last movie, “Mama Mia II,” SOS, Fernando and Waterloo.

A movie screen dropped down showing her past musical and acting achievements. The image of her former husband, Sonny Bono, came up and she performed the touching duet I Got You Babe with him, walking her audience down memory lane.

She then joked with the audience about her age and still being able to fit into her old costumes from so long ago. She exclaimed, “What’s your granny doing tonight?”

Her show was about 90-minutes-long and included 15 songs. Lively dancers, acrobats and a great guitarist entertained the audience between her five-plus costume changes.

At 73, Cher seems to have been able to Turn Back Time as she can still sing, dance, capture and amaze her audience and look great while doing it. For Cher, age is a number.
