pics: Cyndi Lauper’s holiday show w/ Amanda Palmer, A$AP Rocky, Regina Spektor, more

The 2018 edition of Cyndi Lauper‘s annual “Home for the Holidays” concert went down on Saturday (12/8) at NYC’s Beacon Theatre. The night started with a DJ set from The Knocks, who then brought Cyndi out for their song “Classic.” Then Dr. Elmo took the stage for his Christmas classic “Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer,” followed by Regina Spektor who played “Grand Hotel” and “Apres Moi.” Then Nikki Vianna played two songs, then Harlem rapper A$AP Rocky did his new, Tame Impala-sampling song “Sundress” and brought out Cyndi to sing on his Rod Stewart-sampling “Everyday.”

Shea Diamond did “I AM HER,” then Natalie Merchant did “Carnival” and “Kind and Generous,” then Bishop Briggs did their own “River” and brought Cyndi on stage for her classic “Money Changes Everything.” Amanda Palmer then took the stage for “In My Mind” and then Cyndi’s son Dex played a song. After that, blues vet Charlie Musselwhite took the stage for “Good Blues Tonight” before bringing out Cyndi for their collaborative song “Down Don’t Bother Me.” Then Cyndi and Bebe Rexha played Cyndi’s “I Drove All Night” together.

Gina Yashere then changed things up with a comedy set, before Robert Glasper and Cyndi took the stage together for the classic “Time After Time,” Cyndi then brought out Shea Diamond for “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun,” Amanda Palmer for “Home for the Holidays,” and Sara Ramirez for “True Colors,” before closing the show on her own with “Hope.”

Pictures of the whole night are in the gallery above, and you can see some videos below.
