Cyndi Lauper

Cyndi Lauper burst onto the world stage as the quintessential girl who wants to have fun. After more than 25 sterling years and global record sales in excess of 30 million, she has proven that she has the heart and soul to keep her legion of fans compelled by her every creative move.

The beauty of Cyndi Lauper is that she has evolved into a richly multi-faceted renaissance woman who strikes a resonant chord with each project.

With her first album “She’s So Unusual”, Cyndi won a Grammy award for Best New Artist and became the first female artist in history to have five top-10 singles from a debut album. Along the way, she has continually won accolades as a singer, musician, actress, and writer. She has been nominated for 14 Grammy Awards, 2 Emmy Awards, 2 American Music Awards, 7 American Video Awards and 18 MTV awards.

At the center of Cyndi’s life is music. This June, she released her 11th studio album, the Grammy nominated Memphis Blues, which entered the Billboard 200 at #26, becoming the third highest charting album and the fifth top 40 album of her career. Memphis Blues also debuted at #1 on the Billboard Blues Album Chart, ruling atop the chart for 14 consecutive weeks. With this collection of blues cover songs, she is once again reinventing herself by putting her unique twist on one of music’s most beloved genres.

The feel of Memphis Blues is gritty and full of life. Recorded this March at Electraphonic Studios in Memphis, Tennessee, the album features appearances by such great artists as B.B. King, Jonny Lang, Allen Toussaint, Ann Peebles and Charlie Musselwhite.

Performer Info

Cyndi Lauper: When "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" was released to radio in 1984, Cyndi Lauper suddenly found herself immersed with instant fame. The road to success was not easy for Lauper, who recently released the blues infused disc, Memphis Blues, in 2010. She struggled with finding her voice and paying her rent during the early 80s. She persevered, however, and in 1983 released her mega-successful debut, She's So Unusual. Nearly thirty years later and Cyndi Lauper isn't going anywhere. Currently on the road, Cyndi Lauper tour dates are scheduled throughout 2011 to promote her latest disc. Don't miss a date on this pop legend's concert schedule; Use Eventful for Cyndi Lauper tour dates and venue information.

Lauper's debut album spawned four top five singles, sold nearly ten million copies worldwide, and earned Lauper the Best New Artist Grammy Award. Cyndi Lauper then embarked on the She's So Unusual Tour, and achieved worldwide acclaim. Her sophomore album, True Colors, was equally formidable and featured the #1 single of the same name. Throughout the '80s and '90s, this eclectic performer embarked on several tours including the True Colors Worldwide Tour, The Wildest Dreams Tour with Tina Turner, and Do You Believe? Tour with Cher. By the end of the decade, Lauper was an accomplished actress as well having won an Emmy for her guest role on the hit TV show - Mad About You.

Lauper continued to tour and record throughout the new millennium, with her sound moving towards electronica and dance. More recently, Lauper entered the world of Blues and released Memphis Blues in 2010. The album was an immediate hit and returned Lauper back to the upper echelons of the Billboard 200, earning her a Grammy nomination for Best Traditional Blues Album. To promote her latest effort, Cyndi Lauper tour dates have been scheduled nationally at several cozy venues. Stay on top of Cyndi Lauper tour dates and use Eventful as your concert calendar.
