Culture Club Announces 32-Date Summer Tour, Includes Stop At The State Fair

Music News

Culture Club has announced its full 32-stop North American tour. The band, led by the legendary Boy George, kicks things off South of the border on July 2nd in Ensenada, Mexico and hits the U.S. three nights later on July 5th at Orlando, Hard Rock Cafe / Hard Rock Live. Prior to that, Boy George will launch a seven-show East Coast double-bill with Cyndi Lauper starting on May 20th at Uncasville, Connecticut’s Mohegan Sun.

In a recent interview with Lgbtqnation.com, Boy George revealed that he was never anything but comfortable with his gayness growing up, explaining, “Even when I was 10, I just thought, ‘It’s what I’m meant to be and that’s the end of it.’ I never, ever wanted to be straight. Am I happy? I would have found that question really weird 10 years ago. Like, ‘What a f***ing weird thing to ask me!’ But yeah, I’m happy a lot of the time. I mean, really, what have I got to complain about?”

Later this year, Culture Club will release Tribes — the band’s first original album since 1999’s Don’t Mind If I Do. Between 1983 and 1986, Culture Club scored 10 Top 40 hits — including “Do You Really Want To Hurt Me” (#2); “Time (Clock Of The Heart)” (#2); “I’ll Tumble 4 Ya” (#9); “Church Of The Poison Mind” (#10); “Karma Chameleon” (#1); “Miss Me Blind” (#5); “It’s A Miracle” (#13); and “The War Song” (#17).
