It wasn’t just the girls who had fun as families danced the night away with 80s pop icon Cyndi Lauper.
With flame-red hair and her exuberant personality, Lauper gave the audience at Birmingham’s Symphony Hall all they could want.
A near sell-out crowd was invited into Lauper’s wonderful world for the evening as she regaled a host of bizarre but great tales about her life in the industry.
She told stories of trying to fit in back home and meeting legends of music such as BB King on her meteoric rise to fame.
But it was the feet tapping tunes that the audience, including many children, wanted to see.
Parts of the set were devoted to blues including Early in the Morning by Louis Jordan.
However it was the hits that made her a global sensation that the people demanded. Her encore included Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, a romantic singalong version of Time after Time before rounding the show off with an acoustic version of True Colours.
