Cyndi Lauper is going on tour this summer to celebrate the 30th anniversary of her groundbreaking debut album, She's So Unusual. L.A. audiences can catch the tour at the Greek Theatre, where Lauper will perform the album in its entirety, from "Money Changes Everything" to "Yeah Yeah." You'll hear all the big hits: "Girl's Just Want to Have Fun," "Time After Time," "She Bop" and more. Relive the quirky, colorful sounds of the early '80s and the album that made Cyndi Lauper a household name, winning her a place in musical history as the first female artist to have four top 10 singles on a debut album. And of course there's Lauper herself. With her soaring vocal range and fiery personality, her live performance is larger than life and entertaining from start to finish. Learn More

Steve & the band were outstanding. Nokia doesn't have their act together.

It was such an amazing show! Club Nokia had some issues with ticketing. . . which made the whole show start late, but the show itself was wonderful! Steve Martin is a great banjo player and the Steep Canyon Rangers are an amazing bluegrass band!

Steve was so clearly in love with the music he shared with the excellent band that accompanied the performance. The interview beforehand with Dave Barry was smartly funny and obviously between good friends. Like sitting around in the rec room after Saturday night pizza and beers. Really enjoyed it.

Wow! Outstanding show and Goldstar made it so affordable! Steve was delightful and his banjo playing is excellent. And the players with him were top-notch! Hat's off to the Steep Canyon Band. Without the e-mail updates from Goldstar we would have missed this awesome performance. Thanks! john & Cynthia
More Information About Steve Martin's Big Bad Banjo and Conversation with Dave Barry
<p>Steve Martin fans already know the comedian/actor/author’s history with the banjo. Any one who caught one of Martin’s early appearances on TV during the ‘70s is sure to remember the image of the comedian wearing bunny ears or an arrow-through-the-head novelty gag while playing the instrument.</p> <p>Martin’s banjo playing kind of took a backseat during years of movies, books and more movies. That is, until he played second banjo on Earl Scruggs’ Grammy-winning recording of “Foggy Mountain Breakdown” in 2001, holding his own against country stars like Vince Gill and Marty Stuart.</p> <p>Martin will perform songs from his hit bluegrass album, The Crow: New Songs For The Five-String Banjo. Playing with Martin will be the Steep Canyon Rangers as well as the CD’s producer, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band founder John McEuen.</p> <p>“I am very excited to raise money for the Los Angeles Public Library and plan to try to keep it all,” Martin said.</p> <p>But that’s only half of the show. Humor author Dave Barry, the inspiration for‘90s CBS sitcom “Dave’s World,” also appears. Barry is a musician in his own right and plays bass for the literary music group known as the Rock Bottom Remainders.</p> <p>“In today’s economy, we need to support our public libraries. And when you say ‘public library,’ the phrase that immediately comes to mind is ‘banjo music,’” Barry said. “So I’m really looking forward to asking Steve Martin probing questions about his new album, such as: ‘WHY?’”</p>
