“But if you like to go out, if you like to feel good, if you like to be transported by music,

if you’re in search of authenticity in a land inundated by fake. This is your gig’’

BOB LEFSETZ

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: 

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 scored three Top Ten hits in the US – 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.

 

Very special guest, Dannii Minogue will perform a “one off” show in her home town of Melbourne.   Dannii needs no introduction – she is one of Australia’s biggest & favourite exports and earnt her title as Queen of Clubs with more consecutive UK club No.1 hits than any other artist. The singer-songwriter’s last performance in Melbourne was 18 years ago and without doubt, the global star will be welcomed with open arms by her home crowd.  Get ready for her special live show music mash up.

Bjorn Again will perform in Sydney & Brisbane.  They are regarded as one of the most entertaining live shows in the world today and will add another flavour to the fun themed party.   Bjorn Again have performed over 6000 shows in more than 100 countries, including Wembley Stadium & Arena, plus sell out shows at The Royal Albert Hall, Sydney Opera House and most recently, The Enmore Theatre.

Culture Club will be supported by Kids In The Kitchen at all four Australian shows.  Kids In The Kitchen 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’’. 

 

This tour is a once in a lifetime, must see event – be sure to get your tickets quickly.

 

Tickets on sale for all shows on Thursday 14th April at 9.00am
