Cyndi Lauper Shares Lineup for 9th Annual Benefit Concert Home for the Holidays
King Princess, Henry Rollins, and Perry Farrell are among the performers at the event’s LA debut.
It’s getting to be that time of year again—I mean, yeah, the holidays are fast approaching, but more importantly it’s almost time for Cyndi Lauper’s annual Home for the Holidays throwdown, this year taking place December 10 at The Novo in DTLA. Previously set in NYC with the likes of 50 Cent, St. Vincent, and Susan Sarandon taking the stage, the benefit concert may be taking place on a different coast this year, but the pool of talent is equally diverse.
Today we’re learning that King Princess, Kesha, Perry and Etty Lau Farrell, Margaret Cho, Lily Tomlin, Billy Porter, and Henry Rollins—who promises to perform a Black Flag song he hasn’t sung in fifteen years—will all take the stage, along with plenty others, with Queer Eye’s Carson Kressley hosting once again. With additional support from the likes of Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish, Mariah Carey, Dolly Parton, Lady Gaga, Kacey Musgraves, RuPaul, and Tegan and Sara, who’ve donated items and “experiences” to an auction as a part of the event, it’ll certainly be a night to remember.
All proceeds for the event will be donated to True Colors United, a nonprofit aimed at preventing and ending homelessness among LGBTQ youths in America.
