Tickets first become available through an artist presale on Tuesday, June 4, with additional presales running throughout the week before the general onsale launches on Friday, June 7 at 10 a.m. local time. More information can be found at Live Nation's website, while VIP packages are also available through VIP Nation.

Lauper previously teased the idea of a farewell tour in an October 2022 interview with PEOPLE. "I might go out on tour one more time — big time — and maybe be the headliner," she said at the time.

Over the past decade, the "True Colors" performer has opened for artists including Rod StewartCher and Blondie. "I've had the privilege of working with a lot of wonderful people, but I gotta see," added Lauper, who noted she'd "like to" tour in celebration of her debut album, She's So Unusual, marking its 40th anniversary in 2023.

The tour announcement comes shortly before Let the Canary Sing, a new documentary about Lauper's life and career, is released on Paramount+ on June 4.

At the film's Tribeca Festival premiere last year, she opened up to PEOPLE about the inspiration behind her signature hit, "Girls Just Want to Have Fun," originally recorded by Robert Hazard.

"I was trying really hard to make an anthem that would inspire women and open the doors to all women," said Lauper in June 2023. "Not just one group of women, but every little girl could see herself and realize that she too could have a joyful experience in life."
