She’s so unusual! There are few artists who have made an impact on American Pop Music with the strength and power as Cyndi Lauper. She seems to have had a resurrection in acclaim the past few months, from the We Are The World documentary The Greatest Night in Pop about USA For Africa. The voice that so many of us knew to be one of the most powerful and unique in history has found a new audience because of the Netflix doc. It showed her going toe to toe with some of the all-time greats in music and honestly kind of blowing them away during the ensemble song.

Today, Cyndi Lauper has announced the Girls Just Wanna Have Fun Farewell Tour.  Produced by Live Nation, the 23-city headlining tour – Lauper’s first major run in a decade – begins on October 18th at Bell Centre in Montreal, QC, making stops across North America in her hometown of New York City at the iconic Madison Square Garden, plus Boston, Nashville, Los Angeles, and more before wrapping up in Chicago, IL at United Center on December 5th. Throughout the tour, Lauper will be joined by special guests to be revealed at a later date.

Tickets will be available starting with an artist presale beginning Tuesday, June 4. Additional presales will run throughout the week ahead of the general onsale beginning Friday, June 7 at 10 AM local time at LiveNation.comFans can also purchase VIP Packages, which may include premium tickets, a guided backstage tour, pre-show VIP Lounge, exclusive tour poster & more.

Lauper will also be a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live! this Wednesday, June 5 (ABC, 11:35PM ET/10:35PM CT), to talk about her farewell tour and LET THE CANARY SING.  She was also just profiled by CBS Sunday Morning.

Directed by Emmy® Award-winning documentarian Alison Ellwood, LET THE CANARY SING made its world premiere at the 2023 Tribeca Festival.  Produced by Fine Point Films and Sony Music Entertainment in association with Concord Originals, the film chronicles Lauper’s meteoric ascent to stardom and her profound impact on generations through her music, ever-evolving punk style, unwavering feminism and tireless advocacy.
