Trooping the colours

The True Colors Tour 2008 is a massive travelling production with nearly two dozen artists involved, with rotating lineups in each city. So which ones will be in Toronto?

Cyndi Lauper. Grammy Award-winning pop star, actress, jazz singer, dance diva and social activist, this multi-talented legend can’t be stopped.

The B-52s. Back in 1979 this Athens, Georgia-based band ingeniously fused pop, funk, new wave and rock into a killer party groove and hasn’t looked back since. The new album Funplex is proof positive of the group’s enduring genius.

Indigo Girls. Folk pop mavericks Amy Ray and Emily Saliers have been an uncompromising musical force for more than 20 years, pausing along the way to pursue environmental and social activism. But the girls are back with Despite Our Differences, their strongest album of new material in years.

Rosie O’Donnell. Actress, television host, Emmy Award-winner, Broadway producer, philanthropist. Rosie is all these things and more with a dash of controversy.

The Cliks. Brash, energetic and sexy are just a few words used to describe these Toronto natives. They were tour favourites on last year’s True Colors outing, and are back to rock us again.
