WHAT: The tour is called “From Memphis to Mardi Gras” and, OK, it’s easy to spot the New Orleans connection: Dr. John is a Big Easy icon, with a formidable reputation for intricate piano-pounding that has only been enhanced by the recent spotlight of the HBO series ”Treme.” What might be more surprising is singer Cyndi Lauper’s latest incarnation as a Memphis-style blues belter. But believe it: The “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” star is on the road with a blues band, performing songs off her Grammy-nominated 2010 album, “Memphis Blues.” Hey, whatever the girl wants to sing, we’re willing to listen.
