After Peruvian entrepreneurs affirmed it would be impossible for Madonna to include Peru on her Latin American tour assuring the Queen of Pop charged approximately $4 million per concert, local media stated the Andean country would have to settle for Cyndi Lauper.

It has been confirmed that the American Emmy and Grammy award-winning singer will perform in the country’s capital on November 27.

Lauper, who was the first artist in history to have four top-five singles released from one album, is to perform for the first time in Peru at the Estadio Monumental in the Limean district of Ate-Vitarte.

She has assured she will perform several of her greatest hits such as Girls Just Want to Have Fun" and "Time After Time" as well as songs in her latest album Bring Ya to the Brink.

In other music news, it was reported that the Mexican rock band Molotov would be coming to Peru on August 15 despite news that their concert had been canceled.

They are to play at the Parque de la Exposición in Lima alongside Peruvian rock bands such as La Mente.
