LAS VEGAS, Nov. 5 (UPI) -- Bette Midler said Thursday the final performance of her Las Vegas act "The Showgirl Must Go On" will be Jan. 31.
The show will mark the end of her two-year residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, which began Feb. 20, 2008, AEG Live said.
"What a fabulous two years this has been, and I thank AEG and Caesars Palace for the best partnership a showgirl could imagine," Midler said in a statement. "Who knows? These legs have had such a great run in the desert -- it may be time to haul them to places with more humidity and fewer slot machines. But first I need to finish recording my album of the sexiest new love songs that only a showgirl could sing."
John Meglen, co-chief executive officer and president of AEG Live/Concerts West, called Midler "one of the most talented, hard-working professionals in the business." He said the company "would have loved for her to stay longer."
