Eighties icons Culture Club are back, having announced earlier this that the original lineup of the band — Mikey Craig (bass guitar), Roy Hay (guitar and keyboards), Jon Moss (drums and percussion) and front-man Boy George — would not only be touring but also recording a new album with producer Youth due in 2015. The band, who had a string of hits on both sides of the Atlantic during the Reagan Years, broke up in 1986.
Culture Club will be hitting select North American dates this fall, including NYC’s Beacon Theatre on November 25. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (8/15) at 10 AM with Chase cardmember and local presales starting Wednesday (8/13) at 10 AM. The tour also hits Etess Arena in Atlantic City. All other dates (listed below) go on sale Friday too.
We may get more details on all this when Boy George appears on Late Night with Seth Meyers on Thursday (8/14). All dates are listed, along with a few classic videos, below…
