Culture Club in the Eighties
Culture Club frontman Boy George has announced that the band will reform, put out a new album and tour in 2012.
“We’re definitely doing it, in 2012. Our D-Day is April 30, which is the same day as our first-ever single release, White Boy, said George on his official site.
Culture Club, known for hits such as Karma Chameleon and Do You Really Want to Hurt Me, were one of the most influential bands of the 80’s, in part thanks to George’s gender-bending appearance. 2012 will be the 30th anniversary of the band.
“It’s going to be great fun. If we don’t do it now we’ll do it when we’re 60, which will be really tragic,” said George.
The site also revealed that Amy Winehouse producer Mark Ronson is set to produce a new album for the band next year. This after George and Ronson recently collaborated on a new single.
Culture Club last performed together in 2002 in London to celebrate their 20th anniversary. The band has sold around 55 million albums and 100 million singles worldwide.
