Cyndi Lauper has announced the “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun Farewell Tour” for fall 2024. The 23-city production—her first major run in a decade, and produced by Live Nation—includes her debut headlining performance at Madison Square Garden in her hometown of New York City. Throughout the tour, Lauper will be joined by special guests to be revealed at a later date. Tickets will be available starting with an artist presale beginning on June 4. Additional presales will run throughout the week ahead of the general on-sale beginning on June 7 at 10 a.m. here.

Lauper, born June 22, 1953, is a Grammy, Emmy, and Tony Award-winning songwriter and performing artist with global record sales in excess of 50 million. Her hit songs, iconic voice, influential punk glamor, and infectious live shows catapulted her to stardom. Lauper won the Grammy Award for Best New Artist with her first album, She’s So Unusual, and became the first woman in history to have four top-five singles from a debut album including her anthem “Girls Just Want To Have Fun.” Lauper has released ten additional studio albums, featuring classics like “Time After Time” and “True Colors,” and is a Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee and New York Times best-selling author. In 2013, Lauper became the first solo woman to win Best Original Score (music and lyrics) for Kinky Boots. She is also tireless in her advocacy work. She has been an activist since day one, always fighting for the underdog – especially women, people living with HIV/AIDS, and the LGBTQ community.

The announcement of her farewell tour arrives alongside Let the Canary Sing, a feature-length documentary film that explores Lauper’s extraordinary life and career, premiering exclusively on Paramount+ in the U.S. and Canada on June 4.

Lauper will be a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on June 5 (ABC, 11:35 p.m. ET/10:35 p.m. CT), to talk about her farewell tour and the documentary. She was also just profiled by CBS Sunday Morning.

Directed by Emmy® Award-winning documentarian Alison Ellwood, Let the Canary Sing made its world premiere at the 2023 Tribeca Festival. The film chronicles Lauper’s meteoric ascent to stardom and her profound impact on generations through her music, ever-evolving punk style, unwavering feminism and tireless advocacy. The documentary takes the audience on an engaging exploration of a renowned and pioneering artist who has left a remarkable legacy with her art.

Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, has released a career-spanning companion album to the documentary, of the same name. It’s available here.
