After more than 15 years, Culture Club are returning to our shores in June, for one time only. These shows will see the original line-up on stage: featuring singer Boy George, guitarist/keyboardist Roy Hay, bassist Mikey Craig and drummer Jon Moss.
Of all the exciting groups to come out of the alternative music scene in the early 80's, Culture Club became the first to achieve arena headline status. The adulation from around the world and soaring record sales that followed the release of their classic single, "Do You Really Want to Hurt Me" saw Culture Club explode on a global level. Over the course of their career, they have 50 million record sales to their name. The band went on to achieve stunning success with their debut album Kissing To Be Clever and in particular, scoring three Top Ten hits in the US and becoming the first group to hit that milestone since The Beatles. ‘’Time (Clock of the Heart” has also been included on the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's list of 500 songs that shaped rock and roll.
Bjorn Again will perform in Brisbane. They are regarded as one of the most entertaining live shows in the world today and will add another flavor to the fun themed party. Bjorn Again have performed over 6000 shows in more than 100 countries, including appearances at Wembley Stadium and Arena, plus sell out shows at The Royal Albert Hall, The Sydney Opera House and most recently, The Enmore Theatre.
Culture Club will be supported by Kids In The Kitchen, whom became a household name in the 80’s, with their double platinum debut album Shine. The album saw them achieve 5 x Top 10 singles, including ‘’Change In Mood’’, ‘’Bitter Desire’’ and ‘’Current Stand’’. The band will support Culture Club at all four Australian shows.
