Dresden Dolls, Rufus Wainwright and Debbie Harry Round Out True Colors Tour
Chicago, IL —
One Chicago concert is sure to get the gay buzz this summer! Cyndi Lauper is joined by Erasure, Margaret Cho, Dresden Dolls and Debbie Harry on June 12, 2007 for the first-ever True Colors Tour.
The True Colors Tour 2007 is a music and comedy concert tour scheduled for over 15 cities between Memorial Day and the Fourth of July.
The True Colors Tour 2007 will feature Cyndi Lauper, Debbie Harry, Erasure, Margaret Cho, The Gossip, The Dresden Dolls, and other exciting special guests appearing on select dates throughout the tour including Rufus Wainwright, Rosie O'Donnell and Indigo Girls. Additional guests are still to be announced.
The True Colors Tour was conceived by Cyndi Lauper stemming from her desire to give back to the community for the love and support they have given her throughout her career. Through a joint program with the Human Rights Campaign-the nation's largest organization working for GLBT equality- as well as PFLAG and The Matthew Shepard Foundation, the True Colors Tour will bring together Americans across the country to voice their solidarity against discrimination and for equality and raise public awareness about the issues facing the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community. One dollar of every ticket sold will benefit the work of the Human Rights Campaign.
Concert host Margaret Cho says, "I am thrilled to be a part of this tour because I am about as colorful and queer as it gets. Who else is going to keep all those Queens in line?"
"As an American, I was raised to believe that all people have the right to live with the same dignity, opportunity and safety. This should include everyone no matter what gender or sexual orientation," remarked performer and event conceiver Cyndi Lauper.
Tickets for the tour go on sale to the public on March 17, 2007. Some cities, which include Chicago, have already begun ticket presales today. Tickets can be purchased at Ticketmaster.com.
In addition to the partnership with the Human Rights Campaign, the tour will also give Americans an opportunity to learn more about and become involved with the Mathew Shepherd Foundation and Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG). Information on these important organizations will be available onsite at each of the tour locations and online at www.truecolorstour.com.
