About Culture Club
Formed in 1981, Culture Club personified the 80s with their outlandish outfits and catchy hits. The band’s original members include Mikey Craig (bass), Jon Moss (drums), Roy Hay (guitar) and the notorious Boy George.
Throughout the years the band have stacked up seven Top 10 hits in the UK, nine in the US and nine Top 20 singles in Australia. They’ve sold over 100 million singles and 50 million albums; reaching multi-platinum album sales in numerous countries.
Along with their chart success, Culture Club have also won a Grammy Award and Brit Awards as well as being one of the biggest pop bands of the 80s.
Culture Club first signed to Virgin Records in 1982 and it was their third single, Do You Really Want To Hurt Me, that gave the band their big breakthrough. Their debut album, Kissing To Be Clever, soon followed and charted at No.5 in the UK.
Boy George and the rest of Culture Club were quick to achieve success in the states with their early singles and debut album performing well in the charts.
Colour By Numbers followed in 1983 – by this point the band were one of the biggest pop bands in not just the UK but the world. Colour By Numbers included Karma Chameleon; a single that sold over five million copies worldwide.
Their third album, Waking Up With The House On Fie (1984), didn’t achieve the same success as its predecessors with the single The War Song becoming the bands last Top 10 hit of the decade.
In 1987 Culture Club’s break-up was confirmed. The band followed different routes with frontman Boy George opting for a solo career, Jon and Mikey pursuing their own recording studios and Roy taking up composing music for movies and TV.
Culture Club briefly reunited in 1998 releasing VH1 Storytellers/Greatest Hits. The band returned to the UK charts in the same year with the No.4 single I Just Wanna Be Loved.
Fast forward over a decade and Culture Club are about to play their first live dates in over 15 years. The original line-up of Boy George, Mikey Craig, Jon Moss and Roy Hay announced a UK arena tour that will take place in December. The iconic frontman will perform the bands biggest hits with Mikey, Jon and Ray on the Culture Club tour.
