The Awesome ’80s Return: Culture Club Is Reuniting!! [Video]
Still listening to your Culture Club records from the eighties? Well, there’s some good news for you – they’re getting back together.
Billboard reports that the British new wave band is working on a new album, with U.S. and United Kingdom tour dates planned for later this year. And just in case you were worried, the latest incarnation does include original frontman Boy George, as well as bassist Mikey Craig, guitarist/keyboardist Roy Hay, and drummer Jon Moss. It’s the first time the classic lineup has been back together in 14 years.
The U.S. leg kicks off November 15th in Rancho Mirage, California, and hits Oakland, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and New York City, before wrapping up November 28th in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
Culture Club announced their new album back in May, and the band has been working on the project with Youth, the bassist and co-founder of Killing Joke and producer for acts like the Verve, the Cult and Primal Scream. In an interview with Rolling Stone this March, Boy George — who just released his first solo LP, This is What I Do, since 1995 — said the band had tried writing together a few years ago, but admitted that at the time, "my mojo wasn't quite in rhythm."
