Calling all fans of Boy George and the rest of Culture Club: The iconic band behind memorable tracks “Karma Chameleon” and “Do You Really Want To Hurt Me” is coming to Singapore for a concert on 11 December.
According to concert promoter LAMC productions on Monday (18 September), the UK band, which also consists of Roy Hay, Mikey Craig and Jon Moss, will be performing at The Star Theatre later this year.
Tickets are priced at S$248, S$188, S$158, S$138 and S$118, excluding booking fee. Fans can get ready to purchase them via the SISTIC website on 25 September at 9am. For those who would like to purchase via the SISTIC hotline, tickets will be available on the same day from 10am.
Culture Club was formed in 1981 and was one of the most influential groups of the ’80s. Frontman Boy George, with his iconic androgynous features, was the popular face of the band.
Culture Club’s brand of pop music with reggae influences won them multiple awards. In 1984, Culture Club won a Grammy for Best New Artist, as well as Brit Awards for Best British Group and Best Single (for “Karma Chameleon”).
The band broke up in 1986, with reports citing relationship battles among the band members and problems stemming from George’s drug addiction. They reunited for a reunion tour in 1998 and then in 2006 sans Boy George. In 2014, the band were back together again, this time with the original line-up.
While this may be Culture Club’s first concert in Singapore, this won’t be Boy George’s first visit to the country. In 2010, he was in town to headline an event as a DJ at the now defunct Bianca Supper Club at Clarke Quay.
