The wave of nostalgia continues: Cyndi Lauper, one of the most successful American singers of the 1980s, will arrive in Israel
for one concert this winter, which will be held on January 4 at Tel Aviv's Nokia Arena.
Lauper will visit the Holy Land as part of the She's So Unusual Tour, marking the 30th anniversary of her debut album. Watch her inviting the Israeli audience to the show:
The concert is expected to include Lauper's biggest hits, alongside stories from the recording of the album and experiences from her rise to stardom.
Lauper began her career as a singer in cover bands in New York.
In 1983, she launched her solo career with the album "She's So Unusual," which was an immediate success. The album, which included huge hits like "Time After Time" and "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun," earned Lauper a slew of prizes and nominations, including the prestigious Grammy Award, and turned her into one of the most influential artists in the 1980s, especially among the young audience.

In 1986 she released her second album, "True Colors," whose title track became a timeless hit, as did the song "Change of Heart." Her third album, "A Night to Remember," was released in 1989 with the hit "I Drove All Night."
Lauper went on with her musical activity and released several other albums, but failed to reach the artistic and commercial success she experienced at the start of her career.
Alongside her work in the music industry, Lauper has appeared in many television programs in different roles, including guest appearances on "The Simpsons," "Memphis Blues," "The Celebrity Apprentice," and more. Over the years, the singer has devoted a lot of her time to social activity for gay and lesbian rights in the United States.
Lauper will be brought to Israel by Udi Appelboim's production company, which produced Alanis Morissette's concert in Israel. Ticket prices range between NIS 199-999 (about $56-283).
