Chris Willman Senior Music Writer and Chief Music Critic Sometimes girls just want to take a load off, too. Cyndi Lauper will be calling it quits as a touring performer after she does what is billed as her “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun Farewell Tour” in arenas this fall — an outing she insists really will have her calling it a day on any kind of road show, although she’s not ruling out one-offs. “We always used to have a good time together,” she says, in characterizing why she wants to celebrate with fans on one last trip around the world.

I’d rather let them remember me like this,” Lauper says. Truth be told, Lauper hasn’t done significant touring in about a decade, so when this one is over, she will likely resume doing what she spent much of the last 10 years on: focusing on her successful, Tony-winning shift into creating for Broadway.

Her Tony-winning success with “Kinky Boots” make for a rousing third act for her new music documentary, “Let the Canary Sing,” which premiered last week on Paramount+.
