It's not a very big venue, so all seats are pretty good. The drive up is nice as it is located in a residential area, so you pass a lot of nice houses.

We packed some food and ate at some picnic tables near the VIP parking. There aren't many, as far as we could see, so arrive early if you want to do that.

Cyndi and the band had some technical difficulties that didn't take away from the event for me. All in all it was a great show. I'm a big Cyndi Lauper fan - ALWAYS!

I expected to go and get a kick out of the old stuff. I went hoping she would sound almost as good as she used to. She sounded better than ever! The new blues covers were wonderful and that's not something I'm normally into. They were so good...continued

Description

Iconic performer and musical chameleon Cyndi Lauper will perform at The Greek Theatre in support of her latest release Memphis Blues. Lauper will perform favorites from her new release plus her famous hits!

The collection of blues cover songs, recorded this March at Electraphonic Studios in Memphis, Tennessee, features appearances by such great artists as B.B. King, Jonny Lang, Allen Toussaint, Ann Peebles and Charlie Musselwhite. The feel of Memphis Blues is gritty and full of life. It bristles with the kind of energy that earmarked the hit singles invented on the fly at Stax Records, the historic and spiritual prototype for Electraphonic, where musicians of multiple generations work side-by-side creating soul-driven anthems for the brokenhearted, the unrequited, and the overlooked.

After 25 million albums sold, 13 Grammy Award nominations, two Emmy Awards, two American Music Awards, and 18 MTV Video Music Awards, Cyndi Lauper continues to lead as a singer, songwriter, musician, actress, and activist. Her most recent studio album, 2008’s dance-oriented, Grammy-nominated Bring Ya to the Brink, featured collaborations with a cadre of cutting-edge producers and spawned two No. 1 Billboard Hot Dance Club Play singles. In 2009, the long-time actress appeared on such red-hot television shows as 30 Rock, Gossip Girl, Bones, and American Idol (performing with contestant Allison Iraheta), and was a surprise guest at the resurrected concert event “VH1 Divas.” In addition to her love of performing, Lauper is unwavering in her commitment to social activism, creating the True Colors Fund as a show of solidarity against discrimination and to raise awareness about the issues facing the GLBT population. Lauper is also writing her autobiography in which she takes readers on a journey through her colorful life, to be released next year by Simon & Shuster.
