Concert Hall, QPAC, 28 & 29 March

Iconic performer Cyndi Lauper is returning to Australia for two Brisbane performances in March 2011.

Cyndi Lauper was the first artist to have five top ten singles from a debut album which included her mega hit Girls Just Wanna Have Fun. Cyndi has sold 25 million albums, received 13 Grammy nominations, two Emmy Awards, two American Music Awards, and 18 MTV Video Music Awards and continues to lead as a singer, songwriter, musician, actress, and activist.

With her recent album Memphis Blues, a collection of blues cover songs, she is once again reinventing herself by putting her unique twist on one of music’s most beloved genres. The collection of blues cover songs ranges from the harmonica blues ballad Just Your Fool to Don’t Cry No More, originally a hit for Bobby “Blue” Bland. Memphis Blues has been at the top of the Blues charts for several weeks.
 
“Australia is one of my favourite places and I am looking forward to visiting again,” said Ms Lauper. “We always have a great time when we come to Australia.”

Her 2008 studio album, dance-oriented, Grammy-nominated Bring Ya to the Brink, featured collaborations with a cadre of cutting-edge producers and spawned two No. 1 Billboard Hot Dance Club Play singles.

In 2009, the long-time actress appeared on such red-hot television shows as 30 Rock, Gossip Girl, Bones, and American Idol (performing with contestant Allison Iraheta), and was a surprise guest at the resurrected concert event VH1 Divas.

In addition to her love of performing, Cyndi is unwavering in her commitment to social activism, creating the True Colors Fund as a show of solidarity against discrimination and to raise awareness about the issues facing the GLBT population.
