Cyndi Lauper announces first UK show in eight years

Cyndi Lauper has announced a one night only performance at London’s Royal Albert Hall – her first UK solo show in eight years.

​The show will see Lauper perform songs from her catalogue of timeless hits including Time After Time, True Colors, and the anthem, Girls Just Want To Have Fun, with her full band at the Royal Albert Hall on Wednesday 26 June 2024.

Fun Is No.1

Cyndi says: “I haven’t played at the Royal Albert Hall since 1995, when I was there for my 12 Deadly Cyns tour,  I was dressed like a Queen surrounded by Queens singing ‘Hey Now Girls Just Wanna Have Fun’ in all my glory!

“I had a blast. And not only is the Royal Albert Hall one of the most important music venues but over 20 Suffragette rallies were held there! That makes it great for me.”

Pop Icon

The news of the show follows on from the recent announcement of Lauper’s performance at this year’s Glastonbury Festival on the legendary Pyramid Stage.

​A ground-breaking Grammy, Emmy and Tony-Award winning songwriter, Lauper has sold in excess of 50 million records worldwide.

​Her iconic voice, influential punk glamour and infectious live shows catapulted her to superstardom in the 1980’s, and with her debut album She’s So Unusual, she became the first woman in history to have four Top 5 singles from a debut album.

Glittering Career

​Since then, Lauper has released 10 additional studio albums, and has been nominated for 15 Grammy Awards, two American Music Awards, seven American Video Awards, and 18 MTV Awards. In 2013, she won the Tony Award for best original score for composing the Broadway musical Kinky Boots, making her the first woman to win the category by herself.

Tickets for the show will go on-sale from 10am on 28 March from the Royal Albert Hall Box Office here
