News: Music icon Cyndi Lauper announces exclusive 2024 UK Show at London's Royal Albert Hall

The iconic and incomparable Cyndi Lauper has announced a one night only performance at London’s Royal Albert Hall – her first UK solo show in 8 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 legendary Royal Albert Hall on Wednesday 26th June 2024.

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

On the show, Cyndi Lauper 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”

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-five singles from a debut album.

Since then, Lauper has released ten 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 became the first solo woman to win Best Original Score (music and lyrics) for Kinky Boots.
