For the first time ever, Culture Club are coming to Adelaide.  With the original line up of singer Boy George, guitarist/keyboardist Roy Hay, bassist Mikey Craig and drummer Jon Moss – the band will kick off their world tour at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre on June 6th 2016, thanks to the overwhelming demand by the Adelaide public. 

An Australian tour with the iconic 80’s band was announced last week without an Adelaide date.  However, due to public petition, social media activity and overall demand from Adelaide fans, the promoters have listened.  A hectic weekend of activity behind the scenes has now seen the start of the entire world tour moved forward, to enable an Adelaide debut.

Adelaide has had a love affair with Culture Club spanning decades. In 1984 when they first visited Australia, Adelaide was not included on the tour itinerary due to the lack of a suitable venue.  Thanks to radio station 5AD and Molly Meldrum, a campaign by thousands of disappointed fans was picked up on by the band.  They took a day off, jumped on a plane from Melbourne and made an appearance including an acapella performance, on the now demolished overpass in Rundle Mall, to the delight of 25000 screaming fans.

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. 

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’’.  

“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

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