Cyndi Lauper wants to have fun one more time with a 23-city tour this fall that includes a stop on Sunday, Nov. 20, at State Farm Arena.

She is calling this a farewell tour with presale tickets available Tuesday and general on-sale at 10 a.m. Friday, June 7, via Ticketmaster. Prices have not yet been released and there may be some “dynamic” pricing for some seats.

This is her first major tour in a decade and the first time performing in Atlanta since a stop at Atlanta Symphony Hall in 2016.

This tour announcement coincides with the release of a documentary about her life that will debut June 4 on Paramount+ called “Let the Canary Sing.” She will be on Jimmy Kimmel’s talk show Wednesday, June 5, on ABC and was just featured on “CBS Sunday Morning.”

“I never just wanted a hit song,” she told the show Sunday. “I wanted a song that meant something, like the songs that got me through, like the songs I used to chant walking along when I felt like, ‘Oh my God, how am I going to live?’ ‘Why the hell was I born?’“

Her signature breakthrough song “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” was written by a guy, but she was able to turn it into an anthem for women worldwide.

The documentary covers her tough childhood and how “music made it better,” she told CBS correspondent Anthony Mason.

Overall, Lauper wasn’t hugely enamored by fame. “My big dream was really, really, really to be a great artist,” she said.
