Cyndi Lauper to bring her farewell tour to Target Center in December

posted in: News | 0

Pop music icon Cyndi Lauper will embark on what she’s calling her farewell tour this fall and will headline Minneapolis’ Target Center on Dec. 4.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday through Ticketmaster. Neither the promoter nor the venue announced ticket prices. The opening act will be announced at a later date.

Lauper, who turns 71 later this month, emerged in 1983 with her debut album “She’s So Unusual.” A worldwide hit, the record included four Top 5 singles: “Girls Just Want to Have Fun,” “Time After Time,” “She Bop” and “All Through the Night.” It also featured her cover of Prince’s “When You Were Mine.”

After winning the best new artist Grammy in 1985, Lauper went on to release “True Colors” and watched its title track become a smash in North America and much of Europe.

By the end of the ’80s, Lauper fell off the Top 40 charts, but she maintained a steady public presence, taking acting roles, collaborating with other artists and delving into various genres, including country, dance, jazz and blues.

Lauper also composed the music and lyrics for the Broadway musical “Kinky Boots,” which opened on Broadway in 2013 and enjoyed a six-year run. It won six Tony Awards, including best musical and best original score, and has since been staged around the world.

A new documentary about Lauper’s life and career, “Let the Canary Sing,” will debut on Paramount+ on Tuesday. Lauper will also be a guest on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on Wednesday.
