Cyndi Lauper to perform with Rod Stewart this summer at White River Amphitheater

Mary Lambert to appear at Pizza Klatch benefit in Olympia on February 3

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

We'll have to wait until September, but I'm pretty sure it'll be worth the wait. '80s icon Cyndi Lauper is set to appear in concert at White River Amphitheater in late summer, opening for pop legend Rod Stewart. The show, happening on September 1 over the Labor Day Weekend, is part of a second wave of performances by the pair, who began touring together last year to rave reviews. This time around, Lauper and Stewart will visit 22 cities that include Los Angeles, Nashville, Kansas City, Pittsburgh, Denver, Phoenix and New York City. Both artists are expected to play some of their biggest hits. For Stewart fans, this means they might hear 'Young Turks,' 'Maggie May,' 'Hot Legs,' 'Da Ya Think I'm Sexy?' 'Forever Young' and 'Tonight's the Night.' And for Lauper followers, her set list might include 'Girls Just Want to Have Fun,' 'True Colors,' 'Money Changes Everything,' 'She Bop,' 'All Through the Night,' 'Change of Heart' and my personal favorite, 'The Goonies 'R' Good Enough.' Tickets are on sale now at www.LiveNation.com, or charge by phone at 1-800-745-3000.

Also headed to Seattle this summer is another legendary artist pairing, Steely Dan and the Doobie Brothers. Both bands enjoyed successful peaks in their respective careers during the '70s and '80s; and the former continued to release original material most recently in 2003 with its ninth and final studio album, Everything Must Go. With the death last year of founding member Walter Becker and the frequent absence of co-creator Donald Fagen, it isn't clear who'll represent Steely Dan when they come to Seattle on June 5, but whoever comprises the group will surely perform some of the acts most widely-known songs, such as 'Peg,' 'Hey Nineteen,' 'Rikki Don't Lose That Number,' 'Deacon Blues' and 'FM (No Static At All).' It's also unknown which members of the Doobie Brothers will appear at the show, though fans will probably hear a collection of their hits, from 'Minute by Minute' and 'What a Fool Believes' to 'Jesus is Just Alright' and 'Real Love.' Tickets are on sale now at www.LiveNation.com, or charge by phone at 1-800-745-3000.

Returning to Washington state in two weeks is Grammy-nominated artist Mary Lambert. The out and proud singer-songwriter last visited her hometown around Halloween, when she played at The Crocodile. If you missed her then, or if you want to see her again, she'll be performing at the Washington Center for the Performing Arts in Olympia on February 3. Her appearance will help raise funds for Pizza Klatch, a regional organization that fosters resiliency in LGBTQ+ youth and creates a safe, positive school experience through support, education and empowerment. Tickets for the show, which begins on the Main Stage at 7:30pm, are available at www.washingtoncenter.org, or by calling (360) 753-8586; VIP tickets that include a pre-concert reception are available, too.

Here are more new shows to announce to you: Taylor Bennett (LGBT artist and brother of Chance the Rapper) at Neumos on March 25, Tower of Power (50th Anniversary Tour) at Dimitriou's Jazz Alley on April 5-8, The Breeders at The Showbox SoDo on April 13, Nada Surf (celebrating the 25th anniversary of Let Go) at The Neptune on May 9 and Sugarland with Brandy Clark at the ShoWare Center on June 7.

The Grammy Awards are just two weeks away and while we won't know until then who'll be walking away with coveted golden gramophones, it has been confirmed that Kesha, Luis Fonsi with Daddy Yankee, SZA and Bruno Mars with Cardi B will all perform on the broadcast. Additionally, Logic with Alessia Cara and Khalid will be joined by a group of suicide attempt survivors when they collaborate on '1-800-273-8255,' a Song of the Year nominee. Look for a Grammy preview in the January 26 issue of the SGN.

Finally, I wrote recently that Justin Timberlake was on the brink of unveiling tour dates, and he didn't wait until the Super Bowl, as expected. Announced a week ago, he'll open his tour on March 13 in Toronto, but unfortunately he won't be coming through Seattle, at least not on this leg of the itinerary. The closest to the Northwest that Timberlake will be playing is San Jose on April 24.
