Boy George & Culture Club Announces North American Tour
Legendary UK band Culture Club today announced east and west coast dates in North America this fall and have confirmed a new album is in the works and due for release in early 2015.
The tour is set to commence in November on the west coast and, for the first time in 14-years, all the original Culture Club band members - Mikey Craig (bass guitar), Roy Hay (guitar and keyboards), Jon Moss (drums and percussion) and flamboyant front-man Boy George (lead vocals) - will perform together. Tickets for their upcoming North American shows go on-sale this Friday and will be available at www.CultureClub.co.uk
Boy George will also be making an appearance this Thursday, August 14th as a speaking guest alongside Taylor Swift on NBC's Late Night with Seth Meyers, 12:35AM ET / 11:35PM CT. With a career spanning over 30 years, the GRAMMY® Award-winners first shot to international stardom in the 1980's as one of the UK's biggest exports of the 20th Century. A multi-racial band, with an openly gay front-man, Culture Club was ahead of the curve. They went on to become the first group since The Beatles to have three Top Ten hits in the United States from a debut album alone, selling in excess of 100 million singles and over 50 million albums worldwide, with top 10 hits in every country. Hot on the heels of their UK arena tour announcement, the band also entered the recording studio with legendary producer Youth (The Verve, Killing Joke, The Cult, Crowded House, Primal Scream) and have started working on a highly anticipated new album due for release in 2015. Be sure to catch the iconic foursome this fall in North America on the following dates.
