It’s Boy George and the Culture Club live in Manila!!!!




Who would have expected that one of the biggest ‘80s pop groups, Boy George and the Culture Club, are back together for a major concert tour? This news doesn't get much cooler for all their Filipino fans with the announcement of a Philippine Leg slated on June 17 and 18, 8PM at the Araneta Coliseum. As the title of their song says, “It’s A Miracle”!

Formed in 1981 in London, Culture Club is known for smash hits “Do You Really Want To Hurt Me?,” “Time (Clock of the Heart),” “Karma Chameleon,” “Miss Me Blind,” “The War Song,” “Love is Love,” among other chart-toppers. The group achieved worldwide success in the Eighties, scoring three Top Ten U.S. hits from their debut album, Kissing to Be Clever, and becoming the first group to hit that milestone since the Beatles.



Composed of Boy George (lead vocals), Jon Moss (drums), Mikey Craig (bassist) and Roy Hay (guitar), Culture Club rode a wave of pop hits and sold more than 10 million copies of their album Colour By Numbers and captured the Grammy Award for Best New Artist. The said album is included in Rolling Stone’s 100 Best Albums of the 1980s.

The band broke up in 1986 and got back together in 1998. Their last album, Don't Mind If I Do, was released in 1999. In November 2014 the band released “More Than Silence”, their first single from their upcoming album called Tribes, expected for release this year.

There wouldn’t be any point in doing it if it wasn’t everybody. I think when bands try to come together and they got like a different singer or a different drummer, it’s never quite the same. Theres a kind of magic about those four people that created the band,” says the flamboyant Boy George about Culture Club’s reunion.

After all these years, Culture Club has not missed a beat! The group kicked off with their tour last year and their fans are really happy to see them back on stage.

Boy George, who is now regularly seen as a judge in The Voice U.K., is excited to perform for their Filipino fans. He expects it to be one big party and a celebration of one’s individuality.



George said, “We’re rewriting the story of Culture Club. This concert tour will be a new chapter and will definitely be part of the band’s history. And we’d like all our supporters, fans, and everyone to be part of that story.”

Culture Club Featuring Boy George is a must-watch concert as it happens live for the first time in Manila, presented by Royale Chimes Concert & Events Inc. Tickets are now on sale at Ticketnet (911-5555). For more info, call (0918) 497-2121 and (0906) 418-0786.
