Cyndi Lauper burst onto the world stage as the quintessential girl who wants to have fun. After more than 25 sterling years and global record sales in excess of 30 million, she has proven that she has the heart and soul to keep her legion of fans compelled by her every creative move. The beauty of Cyndi Lauper is that she has evolved into a richly multifaceted renaissance woman who strikes a resonant chord with each project.

With her first album, “She's So Unusual,” Lauper won a Grammy for Best New Artist and became the first female artist in history to have five Top 10 singles from a debut album. Along the way, she has continually won accolades as a singer, musician, actress and writer. She has been nominated for 13 Grammys, two Emmys, two American Music Awards, seven American Video Awards and 18 MTV Awards. At the center of Lauper's life is music.

On June 22, she released her 11th studio album, titled “Memphis Blues.” With this collection of blues cover songs, she is once again reinventing herself by putting her unique twist on one of music's most beloved genres.

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE Cyndi Lauper. I have loved her since she came out with Girls Just wanna have Fun!! Remember “Good Enough” from Goonies?!?! I loved that video, with all the pro wrestlers in it. I just love her voice!!! I wanna go!

    • Chelsea August 18, 2010 at 14:26 #

      I would LOVE to be able to see Cyndi Lauper!She was the first person who I remember watching/listening to as a kid,that was just herself!I have always loved her for being true to herself,no matter what.This would be a wonderful way,for me,to end this summer.

  2. CJ August 18, 2010 at 14:10 #

    Scoring a pair of these tickets would put my Cinder Lauper loving wife forever in debted to me!!! She’d proper pee her skinning jean legging pants if I win these!

  3. Renee' Simmons August 18, 2010 at 14:11 #

    I would love to take my adult daughter & do a daughter & mom night at an amazing concert!

  4. Rose jones August 18, 2010 at 14:11 #

    Love her music ! Love her activism on behalf of gay rights!

  5. ShanRock August 18, 2010 at 14:12 #

    I should get tickets because in high school, everybody called me She-Bop.

  6. bonyboy August 18, 2010 at 14:12 #

    She is the only person I know to eclipse my fascination with Captain Lou Albino.

  7. Barbara August 18, 2010 at 14:16 #

    Oh please! I love her and I love the zoo and I love PDX Pipeline and I would be forever grateful and I won’t even go on to list every single song she’s ever recorded but I will sing them quietly to myself for the rest of the week. Please?

  8. SarahMcD August 18, 2010 at 14:25 #

    Cyndi would be great to see live!

  9. Nico August 18, 2010 at 14:34 #

    Cyndi Lauper tickets would be a dream come true!

  10. Jaimee August 18, 2010 at 14:35 #

    I can still remember all of the posters I used to have of Cyndi plastered all over my walls when I was a kid, many of them from Bop! magazine!! It would be fun to see her live.

  11. Megan August 18, 2010 at 14:40 #

    The zoo the 80′s (in the form of Cyndi Lauper) is my idea of the perfect night! I would love some tickets!!

  12. Colleen Cole August 18, 2010 at 14:43 #

    I am an 80s child, so YES this would be epic!! Please please please :)

  13. kristin August 18, 2010 at 14:45 #

    I would love to go!

  14. Justin August 18, 2010 at 15:00 #

    If this show is just half as good as Jimmy Cliff was at the zoo then it will be epic.

  15. Teri August 18, 2010 at 15:06 #

    Man! Why is it that everything in Portland happens on Wednesdays? I’d really like to go to this, but I doubt she’ll play “Good Enough”, anyway…

  16. michael swanson August 18, 2010 at 15:42 #

    I want to go because ive had a crush on Ms. Lauper since i was 10.

    pleaae pick me

  17. Al Cordle August 18, 2010 at 16:09 #

    First and last saw Cyndi in 1984. The time has come again. Please.

  18. nate kraemer August 18, 2010 at 16:38 #

    I’d go and show that Girls aren’t the only ones who wanna have fun. Plus, her music was on the Goonies, any artist who made it on the Goonies movie is a must see live!

  19. SAMONA STROUD August 18, 2010 at 16:45 #

    I AM THE BLACK CYNDI LAUPER & I NEED TO MEET HER IN THIS LIFETIME!!! I GREW UP ON THIS LOVELY GEM! SHE IS PRICELESS! I LOVED HER ON THE APPRENTICE & THE NEW MUSIC SHE HAS RECORDED AS WELL! SHE IS SUCH A GREAT ARTIST & IT WOULD REALLY BE A TREAT TO WITNESS A LIVE SHOW OF HERS. TODAY IS MY SONS BIRTHDAY AS WELL & WE WOULD HAVE A GREAT TIME IN THE PARK W/ MUSIC, FOOD, CUTE ANIMALS, NEW FRIENDS, & SUNSHINE!! THANKS FOR THE OPPORTUNITY : )

  20. Jeremy M August 18, 2010 at 16:59 #

    My first karaoke song I ever sang was girls just want to have fun. I was a nine year old boy who had no idea what he was getting into. I’d love to relive that moment.

  21. Tiffany August 18, 2010 at 17:30 #

    Why do I want to go? Because Cindy rocks the frickin’ house…STILL.
    And, girls just wana have fun. What can I say?

  22. Mistie Dymond August 18, 2010 at 19:10 #

    Going to be an amazing time!!!
    “Would love to be the one to go to this show!
    ” – oooooh Dymond Girl just wants to have fun
    They want to have fun …. “

  23. Rosanna August 18, 2010 at 19:33 #

    I would live to take my 8 year old to see ms. Lauper. I recently got her cd from the library and my daughter fell in love.

  24. Mallie August 18, 2010 at 19:45 #

    CYNDI!!! ELEPHANTS!!!

  25. darwinsbulldog August 18, 2010 at 20:17 #

    Lauper’s music in Goonies is a neat little addition to that movie…. would love to win tickets!

  26. Suzanne August 18, 2010 at 20:20 #

    Guess, I just wanna have fun!I remember listening to her when I was 15. God, Now I feel old. Did anybody watch Celeberty Apprentence?? She was awesome! I would love to go. Maybe I can take my high school sweet heart (My Hubby) to this. I remember my first kiss to my hubby was to the song Time After time. Maybe for my 5 year wedding anniversary, I can recreate that kiss at the concert. Thank you so much for this chance. Love you PDX!!!! Shhh don’t tell my hubby.

  27. Benjamin August 18, 2010 at 20:23 #

    Because she was hilarious on Celebrity Apprentice and I want to laugh at her on stage too.

  28. RossH August 18, 2010 at 20:26 #

    I’ve never gone to a concert at the zoo. This would be soooooo awesome! Pick me!!!

  29. Melissa August 18, 2010 at 21:03 #

    I think it would be totally wicked to see her in concert AND it would be even awesomer to go see her at my first zoo concert!

  30. Dave Taube August 18, 2010 at 21:44 #

    Boys just want to have fun!

  31. Mike August 19, 2010 at 06:43 #

    I have seen her before so I am not really interested in the free tickets. She does put on a good show, however with this show she will probably just play the whole new blues album and maybe one or two of her hits. So those going to see her keep that in mind.

    When I saw her she had a new album out and wouldn’t play anything else except that album.

    That being said, she still rocks and looks great.

    • Krista September 1, 2010 at 14:19 #

      According to her management, she is playing a whole set off her new album, and a whole set of her greatest hits!

  32. Summer August 19, 2010 at 07:23 #

    Words can not express how much I would love to win Cyndi Lauper tickets! Her songs take me back to my childhood and informative years! Dancing and singing all around the house with my friends as if we were putting on our very own concert. Oh goodness, I would love to win these! Pick me please :)

  33. madhu pandit August 19, 2010 at 08:12 #

    would love to witness her show live.

  34. Scott D August 19, 2010 at 08:53 #

    I would love to win these tickets, because I (not surprisingly) I love her music, I believe in what she stands for in not being afraid to tackle controversial issues, and that she did an amazing finale series for Queer as Folk. I’ve also never been to a concert at the Zoo and I’d love for this to be my first experience.

  35. Alex Williams August 19, 2010 at 09:19 #

    She grew up in Brooklyn and so did I.

  36. Cassandra August 19, 2010 at 11:52 #

    my computer crashed on me 4 times trying to comment on this. that’s why i should win – my dedication to winning free stuff. seriously though, cyndi lauper is a goddess. also, i hate capitalizing stuff.

  37. Missy August 19, 2010 at 12:08 #

    I would LOVE to take my 10 year old daughter… hoping & praying for those tickets!!

  38. Mark Fields August 19, 2010 at 12:21 #

    I’ve always been a huge fan of cyndies and have never seen here in concert!A concert at the Zoo would be paradise for 2 right now!!!PLEASE PICK ME!!!!

  39. Laura August 19, 2010 at 12:28 #

    When I was in 8th grade I did a lip sync for the school talent show to Ms. Lauper’s “Girls Just Want to Have Fun.” After 15 years I think it’s time for this girl (me) to have some fun!!! :)

  40. daVe August 19, 2010 at 12:30 #

    damn, laura probably deserves these more than me, but if it’s random and i get ‘em, woohoo!

  41. Carly August 19, 2010 at 12:30 #

    Because this girl just wants (needs) to have fun!! :)

  42. Patricia Socia August 19, 2010 at 12:33 #

    I should win cause I have loved Cyndi since I was born!! :)

  43. Tina Draper August 19, 2010 at 12:37 #

    My husband *loves* Cyndi Lauper and his birthday is Sept. 2nd!

  44. SS August 19, 2010 at 12:45 #

    Gorillas just want to have fun.

  45. Deena Anreise August 19, 2010 at 12:58 #

    Because it’s Cyndi, for Christ’s sake!!!

  46. katie August 19, 2010 at 13:14 #

    I wanna be the one to walk in the sun!

  47. julia August 19, 2010 at 13:16 #

    girls just wanna have fun but they also sing the blues! would love to see her with the smell of elephants!

  48. Teresa August 19, 2010 at 13:18 #

    I spend my summers producing incredible weddings for all the lovely PDX brides; this would be an excellent way to blow off some stress at the end of it all! And I can dazzle the audience with my perfect 80′s dance moves! Class of ’88!!!!

  49. Mike Larson August 19, 2010 at 13:19 #

    One of the first records I ever owned was She’s so Unusual. I would love to see Cindy at the Zoo.

  50. Lisa B August 19, 2010 at 13:30 #

    When I was 15 my aunt hired our next door neighbor ( who impersonated Cyndi Lauper at the time) to come to my birthday party and when I opened the door and seen her there I about flipped! I really thought it was her for a second..lol..I have liked her for over 25 yrs and would love to go see her in concert!!

  51. Kimberly P August 19, 2010 at 13:59 #

    I really wanted to see her show the last time she was in Oregon but it was all sold out, so I would love love loooove to go to this concert!!

  52. mlkinmotion August 19, 2010 at 13:59 #

    Well, everyone deserves to go. She’s fabulous and she’s got something to say to each of us: she’s a true teacher with heart.

    I’d like to go to be reacquainted with her ‘in person’ – I haven’t seen her do a live show in twentyfive years, but I’m been listening to her teachings all the while.

  53. JOCELYN SAUCE SIMONE August 19, 2010 at 14:03 #

    here is some reasons.
    1-i love her, come on girls just wanna have fun.
    2- we have the same birthday, june 22, except i believe shes a bit older than i.

    everyone should join and check it out
    http://www.wegiveadamn.org/

  54. Anna August 19, 2010 at 14:05 #

    Wow, Girls Just Want to Have Fun is one of my all time favorite songs (and Movies) and when I was about 6 I remember my cousin got to go to the Cyndi Lauper concert and I almost died with envy. I tried to go to her show at the casino a few months ago but it sold out sooo quickly. I would LOVE to go to this. The zoo is an amazing venue.

  55. Christel August 19, 2010 at 14:10 #

    I would love to torture my boyfriend, and make him go with me! She is so awesome!

  56. Claire August 19, 2010 at 14:11 #

    I have to go because girls just wanna have fun and because winning would allow me to see your true colors, that’s why I love you!

  57. Tracei S August 19, 2010 at 14:14 #

    I would love to be able to take my 16 year old daughter so she can see where I get not only my great taste in music, but also my sense of style (then & now) from. Cyndi was always a source of what I emulated because growing up in Oklahoma, I always knew there was something different & better out there and found it here in Oregon! Thanks for even considering my request!!

  58. Quincie Robertson August 19, 2010 at 14:23 #

    Growing up in the 80′s Cyndi Lauper was a driving force in my fashion and style, as well as a huge influence on my “girls just want to have fun” attitude. Her style and music have matured however she still continues to impress and delight me. Her Memhis Blues cd is amazing… cheers to an amazing entertainer and woman!

  59. Jennifer Floyd August 19, 2010 at 14:26 #

    The first music I bought with my own money: She’s So Unusual. Still know every word to every song. And, more recently, I think I sealed the deal with my future husband when I surprised him with tickets to Cyndi in Eugene a few years back. He loves how she squeaks! (Listen to She-Bop for a great example.) We’d love to see her again!

  60. Kim D August 19, 2010 at 14:27 #

    My husband and I would love to see her. She is a true original and we have been admiring her for about 30 years..

  61. Lisa K August 19, 2010 at 14:28 #

    Love Cyndi…she made an impact on a confused teenage girl. Would love to see her!

  62. Michael Grover August 19, 2010 at 14:30 #

    I would like to win tickets to Cyndi Lauper so that I can thank my wife for valiantly accompanying me to the Rush concert earlier this summer by taking her to a concert that she would actually like.

  63. Heidi August 19, 2010 at 14:32 #

    I had a vision of this a week ago. I started obsessing over “True Colors”, learning the song from start to finish in preparation to sing it at karaoke. Just yesterday I saw she was coming to the Portland Zoo. When I got an email about winning tickets to see her I KNEW it was meant to be.
    Pick me!!! Pick me!!!

  64. allie August 19, 2010 at 14:49 #

    I would love to see Cyndi! I thought I was Cyndi Lauper when I was 5. Totally loved her.

  65. Lauriel August 19, 2010 at 15:08 #

    Girls just want to have fun was my favorite movie growing up, I must have watched it hundreds of times…I loved it and I love Cindi Lauper!

  66. Rob W August 19, 2010 at 15:11 #

    Danced to her in college. Would like to re-live that….

  67. Kyle August 19, 2010 at 15:13 #

    Cyndi was a huge part of the 80′s. She’s always been fun and a true original as well as a good person. It would be awesome to win tix to this concert and go with a good friend of mine.

  68. Linda August 19, 2010 at 15:41 #

    to know Cindi is to love her, to feel Cindi is her music, to be one body with Cindi is hearing her words in a song, physical immortality is Cindi and I forever…in this moment.

  69. John August 19, 2010 at 15:44 #

    Cindy sees my true colors and that’s why I love her!

  70. Minna August 19, 2010 at 16:18 #

    Thanks for the chance to win! Cyndi Lauper @ the Zoo will be a hoot and a half.

  71. Shawn August 19, 2010 at 16:28 #

    As the assistant to a very lazy radio program director back in the ’80′s, it was my job to sort through the dozens of new records that came in daily, and decide which artists or tracks merited airplay, essentially, giving me the authority to act as program director where the playlist was concerned.
    You can bet your bippy that the SECOND I listened to Cindy’s first single, that disc was directed straight to the studio, and the song was on the air within 20 minutes! I adore Cindy Lauper, to this day, as much as I did that day way back when – when I still worked in the music business, and had so many opportunities to participate actively in many artist’s development. These days, I’m a stay at home single Mom without the where-withall to take my teenager to a lot of shows, but this is one that I would be utterly THRILLED to experience with her, because I know that she would love Cindy’s music as much as I did. Fingers crossed! Thanks!

  72. Nanci August 19, 2010 at 16:29 #

    Cyndi Lauper music just brings me back. I really need a fun night out so I can dance to some good old tunes

  73. Jen singer August 19, 2010 at 17:01 #

    This year cyndi laupers music has been my theme song. True colors has been sung daily around my house as I have learned all about the good and bad of peoples true colors. This would be the high light of a very difficult year and going would be such a big event to end this challenging year.

  74. Myla August 19, 2010 at 17:12 #

    Whaaaaaaat??! Cindy at the Zoo? Yes please, I’m too broke to splurge on this one.

  75. Iris August 19, 2010 at 18:23 #

    I use to own her CD and sing her songs when I was little. It would be amazing to see her live!

    Plus I just want to have fun.

  76. Matt Shoobridge August 19, 2010 at 18:26 #

    She’s So Unusual! :-)

  77. Jason Floyd August 19, 2010 at 18:51 #

    Since I was a young boy I have been mystified by her ability to squeak like in the song “She Bop”. My wife and I saw her in Eugene Oregon a few years ago and loved every juicey lyric that came from her mouth. She is such a great performer and most of all, a beautiful person. If I were givin the opportunity to go, I would be so thrilled to see her perform one more time.

  78. ViolaRose August 19, 2010 at 19:13 #

    I am a girl and I just want to have fun!

  79. Adrianna August 19, 2010 at 19:53 #

    Cyndi is amazing! Girl POWER! My wife and I can’t wait to go see this show. If you send us that is. ;)

  80. Tracy E August 19, 2010 at 21:25 #

    She’s a real trip & Ima Girl who needs to Have Fun on the heels of a 3 Days to Hell Trip w/the boss to Chicago!

  81. Mo August 19, 2010 at 21:43 #

    I sang “Time After Time” at summer camp in front of hundreds of people. I was so nervous. The experience transformed me; a curative for shyness and the beginning of a neverending array of hair colors. I have never seen her in concert, however (nudge).

  82. Krista Kelley August 19, 2010 at 22:16 #

    Girls just wanna have fun! What better place than the Oregon zoo with cyndi lauper! Please make me a happy girl.

  83. Amrik August 19, 2010 at 23:05 #

    I’m teaching my daughter that she can be anyone she wants to be. What better example could there be other than Cyndi at my daughter’s first concert?

  84. Noa August 20, 2010 at 07:28 #

    Because “She Bops”

  85. Anthony August 20, 2010 at 08:30 #

    Cyndi Lauper is a goddess. ‘Nuf said.

  86. Ems August 20, 2010 at 10:56 #

    Please send me to the gig. Ive been looking for an excuse to break our my leopard skin spandex pants and leg warmers! Come on – you wanna see that!!

  87. lisa August 20, 2010 at 11:51 #

    a combo of Lauper & Musselwhite probably wont happen again, so a must see & free is better!

  88. Alice August 20, 2010 at 12:06 #

    “Flashback: warm nights…suitcases of memories.”
    Oregon Zoo shows are a fantastic experience! Sharing music is a lovely memory and I intend to implant as many in my daughter’s youth as possible. Help me out…?

  89. Stacey August 20, 2010 at 12:12 #

    My boyfriend and I LOVE Cyndi Lauper, and neither of us have been to a concert in over ten years. This would be one Hell of a date night! :)

    Thanks!

  90. Kylie August 20, 2010 at 12:12 #

    I would LOVE to win tickets to see Cyndi Lauper! I have been listening to her since I was a child, and have always been so inspired by her music and her fashion sense.

  91. Tysa August 20, 2010 at 12:47 #

    I have a friend in her 3rd series of cancer treatments that would SO love to have this refreshing concert – this is one of her favorite women role models!!! Please pick me!!! Thanks!

  92. donaldallgeier August 20, 2010 at 13:12 #

    I heart Lauper.

  93. Dee Montague August 20, 2010 at 14:59 #

    Me and my significant other never get out anymore. I would love to win tickets! We just have to start trying new things.
    Thanks!

  94. Natasha August 20, 2010 at 16:11 #

    Cyndi Lauper is an incredible woman and to see that she just turned 57 years old in June and is still the same spectacular energetic woman who made the hit single “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” in 1983 is unbelievable. Seeing her in concert would be amazing especially because it’s at the Oregon Zoo!!!

  95. patrick hyde August 20, 2010 at 16:17 #

    My fiancee and I would love to attend the Cindy Lauper concert!! We both have never attended a zoo concert and this would be a great concert to see!!!

  96. Kaitlynn Noble August 20, 2010 at 20:24 #

    Even with a GED, she shows that it’s still possible to live your dream.

  97. Mark August 21, 2010 at 07:24 #

    I introduced her music and her life to my daughter who made her her role model based on not letting anything get in the way of making dreams come true. I would love to be able to take my daughter to see one of her idols life. It would mean so much to the both of us. Thanks for this opportunity Pipeline.

  98. J August 21, 2010 at 08:32 #

    Cyndi is awesome, winning tickets to see her in concert with my girlfriend would be even more awesome.

  99. Valarie August 21, 2010 at 11:39 #

    I want these tickets because Time After Time I have tried to get my good friend to come into town for a weekend.

    Finally when she had a Change of Heart and set the plans to come visit (Labor day weekeend!!!) Cyndi Lauper is coming and it will be perfect because she loves Cyndi. We even had plans to go to the zoo.

    It would be perfect if I could surprise her with these (free) tickets because lets be honest, Money Changes Everything. I can’t afford to buy a set of tickets for the both of us, I’m a college student.

    But, as the beautiful Cyndi Lauper puts it “Girls Just Want To Have Fun” and if I succeed in scoring these tix, J will have reason to say “I Drove All Night to She Bop with CYNDI LAUPER!”

  100. Lonnie Rewa August 21, 2010 at 11:58 #

    Cyndi Lauper kicked open the door in the 80′s. She’s been breaking down musical doors ever since. I want to be in the room when she kicks in the doorway to the Blues with Cyndi and Charley Musselwhite. I just wanna have fun with these two unique talents!!

    I should get these tickets because my prego girlfriend is REALLY wanting to go to the zoo, and a concert would be the perfect bait to get me to actually enjoy the trip, but mainly because with a kid on the way, I couldn’t afford to take her anyway!

    Cyndi is a rare star that keeps true to herself. Her songs remind of my teenage years when things seemed not so world -weary.
    Her voice is amazing, and her personality is adorable. My friend and I have been fans since she burst on to the scene, and we have yet to catch her live… so please pick me.

    I love Cyndi Lauper! My husband and I are celebrating our 6th year wedding anniversary in Septemer. We had some of her songs played during the reception. Everyone rocked out to her songs and had a really fun time. Winning tickets to see her in September would be an extra shot above special. ~MJBD

    When I was 8 years old I would sit with headphones and sing with Cyndi for hours, her version of iko was always my favorite to rewind and listen again! I used to watch her show and my two daughters (8 &12) and I LOVE the Movie Girls Just wanna have fun! I can’t afford to take all three of us so winning tickets would be a blessing!
    Namaste

    Cyndi Lauper was the designated road trip tape in my family! By the time I was 10 I knew every word to her ‘She’s So Unusual’ album. I still have the tape and still know every word. Time after time I think about those trips and how lovely it would be to see her live!

    Cyndia Lauper’s True Colors album was the first cassette tape I owned. I was in the 2nd grade and staying home from school sick one day. My grandfather called and asked what I wanted, I obviously replied with Cyndi Lauper’s True Colors album. As a methodist minister, he had never heard of Cyndi Lauper and had probably only bought a handful of tapes in his life. But eager to please he went to the music store and asked for Cyndi Lauper’s latest album and delivered it to me that afternoon. What a great guy and I felt instantly better.

    Please, I want two tickets to this concert!

    I would like the chance for my children to witness a true icon and legendary singer!

    Why would I like to attend? I believe the names –Cyndi Lauper and Charlie Musselwhite — make that pretty self-expanatory. Plus, nothing says summer like the Oregon Zoo Concert Series, and I have yet to attend one this year (sob).

    Because I have “She’s So Unusual” on vinyl AND cd, as well as the “Time After Time” sheet music. Oddly, in my youth, I fashioned myself to be a singer and attempted to use that song as an audition for a local production of “Annie.” I was not deemed good enough to even be a non-speaking orphan. And so my singing career ended. I would love to celebrate someone who has had the opposite experience (and is quite good at it.)

    Having been a product of 80′s music and a fan of the Oregon Zoo would make this a wonderful prize. I am and will always be a Cyndi Lauper fan. Despite these kids now a day stating 80′s music is so 2002.

  113. Sarah August 23, 2010 at 12:52 #

    I just wanna have fun!

    Simply put, I will marry whoever gets me a ticket to this show. Even if that means I have to marry a lady.

    This is how much I want to see Cyndi perform.

      I remember listening to my mom digging on cindy lauper about 20 years ago. I enjoyed seeing her so happy and careless. Today, as a “adult” I appreciate what i hear, past and present music. It could be a one of a kind night.

    I am Cindi Lauper’s “Doppleganger” twin. Gotta see if she has the secret birthmark, scary.
