Boy George And Culture Club Are Coming To Scarborough

Boy George, together with his band, are recognised as one of the first true innovators in the music and fashion world.

Since their inception in 1981, Culture Club have sold more than 150 million records worldwide and are recognised as a Grammy Award winning UK institution.

Their stream of classic hits includes Do You Really Want to Hurt Me, Karma Chameleon, Church Of The Poison Mind, Victims, It’s A Miracle and The War Song.

In 1984, the band picked up the Grammy Award for Best New Artists, and the awards for Best British Group and Best British Single at the BRIT Awards.

They became the first group since The Beatles to have three Top 10 hits in America from a debut album. The New Romantic band went on to achieve seven UK Top 10 singles, nine Top 10 singles in the USA, and nine Top 20 singles in Australia.

Their 2021 line-up – which sees Boy George perform alongside original Culture Club members Roy Hay and Mikey Craig – continue to sell-out headline shows and tours around the world.

They will play Scarborough Open Air Theatre on Saturday August 14th.

Tickets go on sale via scarboroughopenairtheatre.com on Friday May 21 at 9am.
