Still having fun as a free spirit; CYNDI LAUPER Symphony Hall REVIEW.

Byline: TONY COLLINS

THE girl just wants to have fun, and how!

Cyndi Lauper (pictured) remains the ultimate free spirited rock chick after first gracing these shores more than 20 years ago.

She made regular excursions among her adoring audience, standing on chairs to sing and going into the balcony seats to conduct fans during the chorus of Girls Just Want To Have Fun.

Cyndi, who accompanied herself on both guitar and dulcimer, is back on tour following the release of dance album, Bring Ya To The Brink, from which she tore into some lively numbers.

But it was her collection of fabulous hits from the 80s and 90s that fans most wanted to hear. From the opening Change Of Heart, Cyndi proved she was still at the peak of her powers, and she followed up with classic numbers such as I Drove All Night, and Time After Time, before closing with a glorious rendition of True Colours.
