Cyndi Lauper Brings 30th Anniversary She’s So Unusual Tour to Hard Rock Live at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Saturday, November 9
Tickets on Sale Saturday, August 24 at 11 a.m.
Hollywood, Fla. – Award-winning and celebrated pop performer Cyndi Lauper will bring her 30th anniversary She’s so Unusual Tour to Hard Rock Live at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Saturday, November 9 at 8 p.m. Lauper will be supported by opener Hunter Valentine. Tickets go on sale Saturday, August 24 at 11 a.m.
To honor and thank her legion of fans that have stood by her since the beginning, Lauper will play the landmark album in its entirety as part of the show. The release spawned four Top Five hits on the Billboard 100 – “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun,” “Time After Time,” “She Bop” and “All Through the Night.”
For the past 30 years, Cyndi Lauper has been dazzling—and surprising—her fans all over the world. A multi-talented artist and one of music’s most beloved icons, she has racked up global record sales of over 50 million (and 14 Grammy nominations) and has won countless awards including a Grammy, an Emmy, a Tony and numerous other honors for her tireless activism.
This year brings another series of spectacular firsts for Lauper, as well as a celebration of her three decades in the music industry. To her lengthy list of accomplishments, she can now add Broadway composer, Tony Award winner, star of her own TV show, and author.
Lauper, who won great acclaim with her 2006 stage debut as Jenny in The Threepenny Opera, recently nabbed six Tony Awards for her musical adaptation of the much-anticipated Broadway adaptation of the British film Kinky Boots. The show that Lauper penned music and lyrics for won Best Musical, Best Leading Man and Best Score (Lauper became the first solo woman ever to win the Tony for Best Score).
The new musical, which opened on The Great White Way in April, brought together a powerhouse team: including Lauper, legendary producers Daryl Roth and Hal Luftig, four-time Tony® Award-winner Harvey Fierstein (who wrote the book) and venerable director and choreographer Jerry Mitchell.
Lauper’s recent autobiography, Cyndi Lauper: A Memoir, written with journalist Jancee Dunn and published by Atria Books, is a New York Times best-seller memoir detailing her tumultuous years growing up in Queens, the ups and downs of a career that has spanned over three decades, her conflicted feelings on fame and her advocacy of equality for all that led to the creation of her foundation, the True Colors Fund.
For her television adventure, she joined with one of TV’s most influential producers, Mark Burnett, whom she met after her 2010 turn on Celebrity Apprentice. Her docu-series, titled Cyndi Lauper: Still So Unusual, aired this past January and February on WEtv. The half-hour show gave viewers a backstage pass through her personal and professional life as she juggles her roles as rock star, mother, wife, Broadway composer, and philanthropist. Fans of the FOX hit Bones will also be glad to know that Lauper also continues her recurring role as the bewitching psychic Avalon Harmonia.
An unwavering advocate for equality long before she became famous, Lauper co-founded the True Colors Fund in 2008 to further her commitment. The organization works to advance equality through its Give a Damn Campaign and to bring an end to gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender youth homelessness through its newly launched Forty to None Project. Additionally, Lauper is the Honorary Chairperson and a co- founder of the True Colors Residence, the first project of its kind to provide a permanent, supportive and secure home to formerly homeless LGBT youth in New York City.
Looking to the near future, Cyndi will once again turn back to her first love – music. For now, she’s mum on the details of her next album and tour, but one thing is for sure: it’s yet another invigorating challenge for this ever-changing artist—a woman who is never afraid to push herself creatively, and take her many fans along for the ride.
