Grammy Award winning 80’s pop icon Cyndi Lauper will bring her “She’s So Unusual” Tour to the F.M. Kirby Center for the Performing Arts on October 22 at 8:00 p.m., presented by the Kirby Center and SLP Concerts.
The tour celebrates the 30th Anniversary of Lauper’s smash debut album by the same name.
Lauper took the pop music scene by storm with She’s So Unusual back in 1983. An instant commercial success, the album became the first debut female record to chart four top-five hits on the Billboard Hot 100 - "Girls Just Want to Have Fun", "Time After Time", "She Bop", and "All Through the Night."
The album earned Lauper the Grammy Award for Best New Artist.
Her success continued with her second record, True Colors, in 1986, which included the number one hit of the same name, and "Change of Heart," which peaked at number 3.
Since 1989, Lauper has released nine studio albums. Her most recent effort, the Grammy-nominated Memphis Blues, became Billboard's most successful blues album of 2008, remaining at number one on the blues charts for 13 consecutive weeks.
In 2011, Lauper released an autobiography detailing her battle with child abuse and depression; which became New York Times Best Seller. In 2013, she completed writing both the music and lyrics for the Broadway musical “Kinky Boots,” which led it to the 2013 Tony Awards with 13 nominations, and won six awards, including Best Musical.
The musical also won Best Score, making Lauper the first woman to win the composing category solo.
