CherCoemar Infinity Wash XL lights will headline as Grammy award winning performer Cher graces Ceasars Palace for 110 performances starting this month. With a series of shows following that of Celine Dion, Cher will be complemented, yet not out-dazzled, by the premium lighting essentials that have become a stageshow industry standard.

With the aim of capturing a rock arena feel within the Vegas magic-land that is Ceasars, show lighting designer Baz Halpin (bazhalpin.com) had his hands full. Prior to the initial design Halpin worked with Peter Morse (lighting designer for Bette Midler’s show) to choose stock of lighting fixtures, which would work for all shows (with Halpin bringing some extras for Cher).

The two also performed a duet of country icon Eddy Arnold’s “Make the World Go Away,? which was especially poignant given Arnold’s recent passing on May 8, just short of his 90th birthday. (more…)
