It’s been 30 years since Cyndi Lauper released her debut album with the iconic hits Girls Want To Have Fun, Time after Time and She Bop.
To celebrate the 30th anniversary of She’s So Unusual, Lauper is touring Australia and performing the album in its entirety.
The tour will visit eight cities, kicking off in Melbourne on August 29 and wrapping up in Wollongong on September 14.
She’s So Unusual sold more than 16 million copies worldwide and nabbed Lauper a Grammy Award for Best New Artist.
“It’s been such an amazing year for me,” Lauper said.
“When I realised it’s also the anniversary of the album that started my solo career, I knew it was the perfect time to thank my fans for sticking with me through it all. I’m so excited to perform She’s So Unusual from beginning to end, song by song and I can’t wait to see everyone.”
Lauper has received numerous honours for her work with her True Colours Fund that works to bring an end to gay and transgender youth homelessness.
