Bette Midler: The Showgirl Must Go On scene

The Divine Miss M struts and sings in Bette Midler: The Showgirl Must Go On.

Bette Midler‘s triumphant return to Las Vegas, The Showgirl Must Go On, is a $10 million extravaganza that played more than 300 performances in a nearly three-year run at Caesar’s Palace, and it’s great to see it come to DVD and Blu-ray.

Directed and co-produced by the superstar herself, Bette Midler: The Showgirl Must Go On was taped before thousands in The Colosseum at Caesars Palace on Dec. 31, 2010.

Joining “The Divine Miss M” onstage is an energetic corps of talented performers, including her renowned back-up singers “The Harlettes,” 20 dancers she calls “The Caesar Salad Girls” and a 13-piece band. The singer sings and struts her stuff in a 70-minute show that includes such numbers as “The Rose,” “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy,” “From a Distance,” “Hello in There” and “Wind Beneath My Wings.”

No bonus features are on the disc editions of the live concert, which was broadcast live on HBO and nominated for a 2011 Emmy Award for “Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Special.”
