It's hard to believe that it has been thirty years since Cyndi Lauper released her debut album, She's So Unusual. The iconic Girls Just Want to Have Fun (and the just as iconic Captain Lou Albano video), Time After Time, She Bop, All Through the Night and the rest of the album sound as fresh today as when they were released in 1983.
To celebrate the anniversary, Lauper will be performing the entire album plus a selection of her other best known material on the She's So Unusual Tour, starting June 12 in San Diego, CA and running through July 13 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
The album was a music milestone, introducing a new voice to the still male dominated music landscape. It's four top ten singles was a record for a female artist at the time. The album eventually sold over sixteen million copies and won her the Grammy for Best New Artist.
Lauper, who is also opening the musical Kinky Boots on Broadway in the coming weeks, said 'It's been such an amazing year for me. When I realized it's also the anniversary of the album that started my solo career, I knew it was the perfect time to thank my fans for sticking with me through it all. I'm so excited to perform She's So Unusual from beginning to end, song by song and I can't wait to see everyone!'
