I’ve made no secret that one of my favorite things about attending live shows in the Reno/Tahoe area is that, without any mega-venues, when larger bands and performers put us on their tour itinerary, it gives us the chance to see them play in a smaller venue than most.
In Summer of 2017, pop icons Rod Stewart and Cyndi Lauper teamed up for a co-headlining tour that traveled the East Coast for 18 conerts. Following the tour, Stewart went to Las Vegas for a residency, while Lauper went back to work on the award-winning Broadway show, “Kinky Boots.”
After reviews of the tour began rolling in, the two reunited to book a longer run of dates hitting much of the West Coast this year. On a tour that will see the two playing larger venues — from arenas to The Hollywood Bowl — their stop at the Reno Events Center will give fans here the opportunity to see them in a more intimate-sized venue than usual.
Cyndi Lauper is still almost synonymous with 1980 New Wave with her songs “Girls Just Want To Have Fun,” “She Bop,” “True Colors,” the theme song to the Goonies, “The Goonies ‘R’ Good Enough,” and her stirring cover of Roy Orbison’s “I Drove All Night.” Her shows continue to be sassy, playful and a demonstration of her whipsmart New York wit with stories and jokes between songs.
Rod Stewart was also pretty much a hit machine across several decades with “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy?”, “Forever Young,” “Maggie May,” “Have I Told You Lately” and “Young Turks.”
The two bring their show to the Reno Events Center on Tuesday, Aug. 28.
