Grammy Award winning legends Boy George and Culture Club have revealed plans for a major 2018 U.S. headline tour with the multi-platinum selling band The B-52s.  Announced today, “The Life Tour” starring Boy George & Culture Club and The B-52s with special guest Thompson Twins’ Tom Bailey will visit 40+ cities across the U.S. kicking off June 29 in St. Augustine, FL. “We put together an amazing show that is going to be filled with hits and fabulous memories, we know it will be hands down this summer’s best night out,” said Boy George.

About Boy George & Culture Club

After more than two decades and 150 million singles & records sold globally, 2018 marks a new era for Boy George and Culture Club, as they are currently working on their first new music in 20 years. The tour setlist will celebrate some of their biggest hits plus gives fans an advance listen to new songs. Since their inception in 1981 Culture Club have sold more than 50 million albums and 100 million singles totaling 150 million worldwide, led by their classic hits, "Do You Really Want to Hurt Me," "Karma Chameleon," and "I'll Tumble 4 Ya.” The group is fronted by British singer/songwriter Boy George, who is universally recognized as one of music's iconic artists of all time. George was recently presented with the Ivor Novello lifetime achievement award in 2015 for his contribution to the music industry. As the first multi-racial band with an openly gay front man, Culture Club has set many records, including being the first band since The Beatles to have three Top Ten hits in America from a debut album.  The band reunited in 2014 embarked on two worldwide sold-out tours in 2015 and 2016.  Looking ahead, 2018 marks a new era for Boy George and Culture Club, as they are set to commence on a 45-date tour this summer and are currently working on new music. Roy Hay, Mikey Craig and Jon Moss make up the remaining original line up set to tour.

About The B-52s

Selling over 20 million albums worldwide, The B-52s—Fred Schneider [vocals], Kate Pierson [vocals], Cindy Wilson [vocals], and Keith Strickland [guitar, drums, keys, programming]— have quietly impacted alternative music, fashion, and culture over the course of four-plus decades. They count John Lennon, Madonna, James Murphy, and Michael Stipe among their disciples. Panic! At The Disco, Blood Orange, The Offspring, Pitbull, Roger Sanchez, and DJ Shadow have sampled classics from the band’s discography as Seth MacFarlane’s Family GuyThe Simpsons, Sugarland, and more offered up covers of their own. They inched towards the forefront of the post-punk movement in America codified by 1979’s self-titled The B-52s. Not only did the record go gold, but it also placed at #152 on Rolling Stone’s “500 Greatest Albums of All Time” and #99 on VH1’s “Greatest Albums of All Time.” The gold-selling Wild Planet arrived hot on its heels in 1980. With Keith brilliantly filling the void in with music composition and live show guitar duties, 1989’s watershed Cosmic Thing elevated the B-52s to another galaxy altogether. It moved 5 million-plus units and spawned a string of Top 10 smashes in the form of the GRAMMY®-nominated “Roam” and “Love Shack”—which Rolling Stone lauded on the “500 Greatest Songs of All Time.” 

After a 16-year hiatus, The B-52’s proved as bright, bold, and boundless as ever on 2008’s Funplex. The momentum only ramped up when they roamed on tour in 2015 alongside Tears for Fears and more. As they prepare a high-profile documentary and first official book, The B-52s look forward to inspiring future generations.
