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
