Cyndi Lauper Saying Farewell With ‘Girls Just Wanna Have Fun’ Tour

For the first time in over a decade, Cyndi Lauper will be hitting the road for a headlining tour across North America this fall, and she’s going to make it special.

Lauper’s run comes to a close Dec. 5 at United Center in Chicago.
