We adore Icon of the Eighties, Cyndi Lauper. The singer/songwriter has been delighting us for 30 years and unlike her contemporary Madonna, she seems to be aging far better…or, at least not trying to act like she’s 23 instead of fiftysomething. Pretty classy for a girl from Ozone Park! We saw Cyndi “back in the day” in Round One of her fame, and she’s still going strong at age 59.
There’s been RUMORS that Ms Lauper would be bopping into our part of the world sometime soon and those rumors have been confirmed. Cyndi will be hitting Tacoma’s Pantages Theatre on Sunday, June 16, 2013 with the all girl group Hunter Valentine as the opener. Get tickets HERE and more info:
Celebrate the 30th anniversary release of Cyndi Lauper’s iconic debut album She’s So Unusual! The album, which spawned four Top-5 hits on the Billboard 100 and made Lauper a defining voice of the 1980s, will be performed in its entirety. Included will be all-time hits Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, She Bop, and All Through the Night.
Cyndi Lauper has recorded nine albums, which have sold more than fifty million copies worldwide. Other hit singles she has released include True Colors, We Are the World, Change of Heart andShattered Dreams. So, gather your posse and bust out your leg warmers for truly epic concert!
Opening for Cyndi Lauper will be all-girl alternative rock band Hunter Valentine. Fronted by talented guitarist Kiyomi McCloskey, the Brooklyn based group has released three albums, The Impatient Romantic, Lessons from the Late Night, and their latest, Collide and Conquer.
Ms Lauper is just coming off the opening of her new Broadway musical “Kinky Boots” based on the film of the same name about a failing British shoe factory that decides to go into the business of making fetish and performance shoes for drag queens. It’s received mixed reviews but Cyndi’s score has received accolades. (It sort of sounds like the type of musical that Balagan will do some day…)
As for the June show, it sounds like it’s well worth a trip to the hinterlands of Tacoma and the gorgeous Pantages Theatre.
