Glastonbury 2024: Cyndi Lauper Suffers Sound Issues

Fans criticise the performance...

Cyndi Lauper suffered sound issues during her Glastonbury set.

The pop icon has just confirmed plans for her Girls Just Wanna Have Fun Farewell tour, Cyndi Lauper’s largest live engagement for a decade – and also her final tour.

The star will host special shows in Glasgow, Manchester, London, Birmingham, and Belfast before continuing onto Budapest, Lodz, Prague, Berlin, Dusseldorf and Paris. 

Kicking off her final farewell, Cyndi Lauper hit the Pyramid Stage but the 71-year-old struggled to find her pitch. ‘Rocking Chair’ felt awkward, and she faltered on 80s mega-banger ‘Time After Time’ – could faulty in-ears have been to blame?

A true pro, she rose to the challenge, with a soaring version of her ballad ‘I Drove All Night’. The audience moved to lift her, singing along to epic hits such as ‘Girls Just Wanna Have Fun’.

“How are you doing?” she asked the mammoth Pyramid Stage. “I see you. I love you. You are everywhere.”

Viewers at home were unimpressed, voicing their opinions on social media. “Cyndi Lauper certainly isn’t miming, although I kinda wish she was,” said one at-home Glastonbury viewer; “I think the music is going faster than she is, she’s not in time and out of tune in places… Not good at all,” wrote another.
