Cyndi Lauper sings the Blues

Cyndi Lauper is set to show her true colours down under in March 2011 with a series of Theatre shows that fall suspiciously close to the Byron Bay Blues and Roots Festival.

While the timing of her tour may just be a coincidence, the 80s pop icon has just released her eleventh studio album Memphis Blues, on which she collaborates with a number of well known artists including Blues Fest headliner BB King.

The new record sees Lauper eschew her pop past in favour of some sassy Southern Soul, and has already become the singer’s most successful release since her debut album’s True Colours and She’s So Unsual.
