Cool tour alert: Cyndi Lauper and Dr. John are teaming for a quick 15-date fall tour.
Dubbed “From Memphis to Mardi Gras,” the jaunt kicks off Oct. 7 in Orlando and comes to the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre on Oct. 12.
Tickets are on sale at 10 a.m. Friday for $37-$73.
Last year Lauper released “Memphis Blues,” which showcased her formidable vocals on classics such as “Crossroads” (with Jonny Lang) and “Just Your Fool.” A live DVD, also called “Memphis Blues,” will bow this fall. Dr. John, of course, is regarded as the patron musician of New Orleans and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year.
The duo’s tour will hit South Carolina, New Jersey, D.C. and Pennsylvania among its stops.
