The news comes after Cyndi’s documentary, Let The Canary Sing, detailing her rise to fame at 30, premiered exclusively in the U.S. and Canada on June 4.

In celebration of the documentary and the tour, Cyndi left her hand and footprints at the prestigious TCL Chinese Theatre Hollywood in Los Angeles.

She was joined by her sister and Sharon Osbourne at the premiere and Cher and Bebe Rhexa at the ceremony. 

During an interview with AP at the Hand And Footprint ceremony, Cyndi was asked why she decided to go on her final tour now.

She answered: ‘Because this is the strongest I am, and in five years I don’t know where I’m gonna be. I still do my yoga…and you know, I work out, I do yoga, I do [physical therapy], I do vocal exercises.

‘But, you know, I’m also working on theater stuff, like Broadway shows. And that takes a lot,’ the singer explained.

‘So, I figure I’m not gonna wait. I’m gonna do it now, because now is a good time and celebrate with everybody just one last time in an arena tour which I haven’t done on my own in…since the 80s.’

She continued: ‘My fans have been all over the world. You know, it takes a lot. But this is gonna be it. I’ll go all over, I’ll go North America, I’ll do Europe, I’ll do Asia, I’ll do Australia and then South America. So, I’m gonna try to get the hemispheres in there and say goodbye and thank you…’
