The legendary Boy George will bring his iconic band CULTURE CLUB to Hull Venue as part of an 11-date UK arena tour later this year.
The band, who have sold more than 150 million records worldwide, will perform at Hull Venue on 20 November and the gig follows shows on the same tour at Wembley Arena, Manchester Arena and First Direct Arena, Leeds.
The show is promoted by Hull based Wrecking Ball Promotions and will also feature 80’s pop sweetheart Belinda Carlisle and new wave, synth pop artist Thompson Twins’ Tom Bailey.
Since their inception in 1981 Culture Club have had a stream of classic hits including; ‘Do You Really Want to Hurt Me’, ‘Karma Chameleon’, ‘Church Of The Poison Mind’, ‘Victims’, ‘It’s A Miracle’ and ‘The War Song’.
The group are fronted by singer/songwriter Boy George, universally loved as one of music’s most iconic artists. Roy Hay, Mikey Craig and Jon Moss make up the remaining original line up for one of the most exciting tours of the decade!
‘We put together an amazing show that is going to be filled with hits and fabulous memories, we know it will be hands down this summer’s best night out.”
As the first multi-racial band with an openly gay front man, Culture Club set many records and established themselves as icons of British musical history and popular culture. The band reunited in 2014 and embarked on two worldwide sell-out tours over the following two years.
Looking ahead, 2018 marks a new era for Boy George and Culture Club, as they are set to commence a global tour throughout the Summer and release a new album later this year.
Hailed as one of the most beautiful women in pop, Belinda was a former teen punk singer in the GoGos’s, during the 80’s she went solo and rocked both sides of the Atlantic, storming into the number 1 slot with her distinctive vocals on ‘Heaven Is A Place on Earth’ and hits such as ‘Leave a Light On’.
The music and videos of the Thompson Twins became a fixture on hit radio and music television throughout the world in the 80s. Now The Thompson Twins’ Tom Bailey, with a new band, will be touring and performing the Thompson Twins hits. The Thompson Twins’ Tom Bailey features Tom Bailey on vocals, keyboards, guitar, harmonica and percussion. His all-female band feature Charlotte Raven on vocals and keyboards, Amanda Kramer (The Psychedelic Furs/Information Society) on vocals and keyboards and Paulina Szczepaniak on electronic drums.
