by January Ellen

I remember being totally bummed out one day at work, and one of my co-workers asked me what was wrong. I told her that Cyndi Lauper tickets were going on sale and I couldn't afford the ticket. To my complete surprise and disbelief, this now really great friend of mine offered to buy my ticket for me so I could go, and offered to go with me! So we took a Greyhound to the Opera House, and found ourselves lined up to see the show. I wasn't aware beforehand that they were filming a video. I saw posters all over that said that if you didn't want to be seen on camera then you better not go in. Well that just made me even MORE excited! We made our way up to the front row, and this was the closest I had ever been to Cyndi! She had white blond hair, and it was short with long spiky sideburns. She wore a great black outfit....but as I write this--DUH!--you probably saw that in the video! She had a wonderful band, and backup singers too. I remember she sang "Dear John" with one of the backup singers. During the show she allowed people to ask her questions, and someone said that they thought her new album was way better than Madonna's. Cyndi's response, which made

me even more respectful of her as a person and performer, was that she appreciated how much they liked her new album, but that it wasn't necessary to blow out someone else's candle to make hers burn brighter. Wow. What a classy lady. Someone else asked her to sign a $10 bill, which she did. She sang an a cappella version of True Colors. And she wore a steel washboard on her chest during a song as well. (I don't remember which one!) The absolute COOLEST thing that happened to me at this show was when I got to shake Cyndi's hand during a song. She came over to my side of the stage, and everyone put their hand up for her to touch, and out of everyone she took my hand and held it for a few seconds. I couldn't believe that I got to shake hands with Cyndi Lauper! I have pictures from that show, but unfortunately I don't have a scanner. And I didn't make it in the video. Unfortunately we had to leave the show early to catch our Greyhound bus home.

More reviews coming soon!
