Cyndi Lauper announces “exclusive” UK greatest hits show at London’s Royal Albert Hall

Cyndi Lauper has announced an “exclusive” greatest hits show at the Royal Albert Hall in London – find all the details below.

The “one-night-only” performance will take place at the historic venue on Wednesday, June 26 ahead of the New York singer-songwriter’s appearance at Glastonbury Festival that weekend.

It’ll mark Lauper’s first UK solo concert in eight years, where she’ll play songs from her catalogue of hits including ‘Time After Time’, ‘True Colors’ and the ’80s anthem ‘Girls Just Want To Have Fun’.

“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 Want To Have Fun)’ in all my glory!” Lauper explained.

The iconic and incomparable Cyndi Lauper will appear in a one night only performance at the Hall this summer – her first UK solo show in 8 years.
