SYDNEY (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — '80s new wavers Culture Club have announced that they are reuniting for a New Year's Eve gig in Sydney with talk of a new studio album as well.
Fronted by Boy George, with Roy Hay on guitar, Mike Craig on bass and Jon Moss on drums, the band will perform at the Sydney Resolution Concert Series on Dec. 31. Also on the bill for the evening are Jamiroquai and Pet Shop Boys, as well as Guy Sebastian, Pseudo Echo and Lyndsey Ollard.
Culture Club formed in 1981 after George left Bow Wow Wow and found success with a hit off of their first album "Do you really want to hurt me," which hit #1 on the charts in more than a dozen countries. The band saw success in the early 1980s, but disbanded in 1986, staging a reunion in 2002.
Since then, frontman Boy George has had several legal entanglements including arrests for suspicion of of cocaine possession in 2005 and convictions for assault and false imprisonment that earned the singer 15 months in prison. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
