Culture Club

The British quartet Culture Club were one of the most commercially dominant groups of the early-’80s new wave era, and their fey, romantic glamor and subtle soul-music touches helped open the door for the New Romantic subgenre. The group broke up in 1986, partly because of frontman Boy George’s heroin addiction, but they’ve gotten together a few times since, for tours and for the 1999 reunion album Don’t Mind If I Do. Over the past decade, there have been a few partial reunions, including a tour that didn’t include Boy George. But all four key members are back together again, and they played some UK shows this summer. Right now, they’re at work on another reunion album, this time with the veteran A-list producer Youth. And this fall, they’ll come to the U.S. for a short tour. We’ve got those dates below.

11/15 Rancho Mirage, CA @ Agua Caliente Casino Resort Spa
11/17 Oakland, CA @ Fox Theater
11/19 Los Angeles, CA @ Shrine Auditorium
11/22 Las Vegas, NV @ The Pearl
11/25 New York, NY @ Beacon Theatre
11/28 Atlantic City, NJ @ Etess Arena

The new album is expected in 2015.

  1. Well fuck, I can’t be the only one excited to hear this.. .can I? I thought they were recently hating each other. George with facial hair is like, uhhh, weird. Anyway, going to try to attend that Fox Theater show. Their first couple albums were a huge part of my youth (still have both of the actual vinyl album from that time, too).

  2. i thought boy george was bald? nice lookin piven implants I guess

  3. that guy in the middle-left looks like his head is photoshopped onto his body. i just can’t get myself to see it as a real person

  4. OMG. So awesome. I’ll be there at the Rancho Mirage show. Boy George is one of my 7 year old daughter’s crushes.

  5. Oh, and major points for getting Youth to produce the album. There should be two of that guy so he could work 730 days a year. He’s done so much for popular music in the last 30 plus years and most people have absolutely no idea who he is.
