Cyndi Lauper Confirms Farewell Tour

Scheduled for the latter part of 2024, Cyndi Lauper has announced her farewell tour.

With 23 North American shows starting in October in Montreal and running through December in Chicago, the now 70-year old iconic pop musician unveiled plans for her first major tour in a decade and will confirm opening acts at a later date.

Billed as ‘The Girls Just Wanna Have Fun Farewell Tour’, Lauper assumed its name from her legendary 1983 #1 pop hit single.

Directed by Alison Ellwood, on Tuesday (6.04) the superstar singer/songwriter is releasing new documentary ‘Let The Canary Sing’ via Paramount+. The career-spanning film will premiere the same day Cyndi is expected at a handprint ceremony at Hollywood’s TCL Chinese Theatre, and she will appear on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ on Wednesday (6.05) evening.

News of her last tour comes after she signed a deal with Swedish virtual avatar company Pophouse Entertainment Group, which is behind the ‘Abba Voyage’ arena show. Founded by Abba singer Bjorn Ulvaeus, the company also owns the lion’s share of Lauper’s master recording revenue and publishing. Including such legendary songs as ‘True Colours’ and ‘Time After Time’, with live shows, TV plans and other projects, the company will pursue “creative activations” of her catalogue.

In a statement about the deal, Cyndi Lauper said:

“Since we first met, Pophouse has impressed me with their commitment to maintaining and developing my professional life’s work and ensuring its legacy.” “Their creativity and vision, combined with my continued involvement via our unique joint venture, is what is most exciting to me.” “I can’t wait to participate in this new stage in my musical evolution and I could not be more pleased to know my music will now be in Pophouse’s safe hands as they build upon my legacy in the years to come.” “When I saw the Abba Voyage, I started to think about what could be done, and then I got excited. I’m not selling, I’m buying.”
