Concluding a remarkable journey that began in 2008, Midler’s departure marks the end of one of Vegas’s most popular song-and-dance shows. Wowing audiences with her unique brand of fishnets and feathers, Midler appeared in 180 consecutive shows and generated more than $65 million in ticket sales.
Appearing in front of an estimated 750,000 fans, the Divine Miss M leaves on top of her game. Over the course of her run, fans included Tony Bennett, Taye Diggs, Dita von Teese, Pink, Yoko Ono, and of course, Mandy Moore!
As a long-time fan, songstress Mandy Moore has made no secret of her devotion to the legendary entertainer. In an interview featured in the L.A. Times back in 2004, Mandy noted: “I love Bette Midler. I think I’d probably faint if I met her. She’s accomplished everything–Broadway, TV, movies, recording. Plus, she’s a wife, a mom, and a household name. She’s unique and I have so much respect for her.”
Congrats Miss M!
