Boy George

As the lead singer of the pop group, “Culture Club”, Boy George enjoyed his peak of fame in the 1980’s with iconic songs, “Karma Chameleon” and “Do You Really Want To Hurt Me”.  His soulful voice and wacky dress sense made him part of the New Romantic Movement.  Culture Club disbanded in 1986, and it is around this time that Boy George launched his own solo career.  His debut album became successful around Europe, however it did not receive as much success in the US as Boy George was prohibited from entering the US due to previous drug related charges.  Although he struggled with various aspects of his life, his musical career was followed by many fans.  Click here to take a look at our Boy George tribute acts before you book!
