There are few artists that I would just flat out do a free commercial for but if your first name is Bette, Cher, Barbra, Patti or Diana, you can pretty much count on it!

Today is Bette Midler’s freebie.

Image Entertainment presents the Divine Miss M’s triumphant return to Las Vegas with BETTE MIDLER: THE SHOWGIRL MUST GO ON, available on Blu-ray and DVD today.

The $10 million extravaganza played over 300 performances in a nearly three-year run at the famed Colosseum at Caesar’s Palace. The Blu-ray is SRP at $24.98, with the DVD’s SRP at $19.98.

Taped before thousands in The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, the 70-minute cavalcade feaures many of Ms. Midler’s colorful and classic stage and screen characters. Joining her on the gargantuan stage is an energetic corps of talented performers, including the staggering Harlettes, twenty dazzling dancers she calls The Caesar Salad Girls and a 13-piece band. Ms. Midler’s superstar power shines in renditions of her immortal songs including “The Rose,” “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy,” “From a Distance,” “Hello in There” and “Wind Beneath My Wings.” The production was nominated for a 2011 Emmy Award for Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Special.

The show was produced by Midler and Seanne Farmer; directed by Midler; executive produced by Midler; choreographed by Toni Basil with original stage production conceived and directed by Midler.
