The original Culture Club line-up have confirmed they are to play live dates across the UK for the first time in over 15 years.

The tour will include a show on Saturday 6th December 2014 at Capital FM Arena Nottingham.

There is not a country in the world that doesn’t know the names of Boy George and Culture Club.

The Grammy Award winners have sold in excess of 100 million singles and over 50 million albums, making it as one of the biggest pop bands of the 1980s.

They achieved seven straight Top 10 hits in the UK, had number 1 singles in over a dozen countries and multi platinum album sales across the world, and were first group since The Beatles to have three Top Ten hits in America from a debut album.

They were also the first group in music history to have an album certified diamond in Canada.

The band consisted of Mikey Craig (bass guitar), Roy Hay (guitar and keyboards), Jon Moss (drums and percussion) and flamboyant front man Boy George (lead vocals).

Prior to these live dates Culture Club will be going into the studio to record new material, with producer Youth (Paul McCartney, The Verve, Embrace) for an album to be released early in 2015.

Joining Culture Club on this tour will be very special guest Alison Moyet, well renowned musical icon, who has amassed sales of more than 20 million records both as a solo artist and half of influential duo Yazoo. In 2013 Alison returned to her electro roots with her album ‘the minutes’, a Top 5 hit in the UK. Alison toured throughout the last quarter of the year visiting UK, Europe, USA and South Africa topping it off with a triumphant show at the Royal Albert Hall in April 2014.
