Culture Club The Encore Tour
One World Entertainment in association with Channel 9 and mix94.5 present Culture Clubwith Pseudo Echo and Real Life.
High off the back of sold out shows and rave reviews across the USA and Australia, Culture Club are coming back to Perth for an Encore Tour. Perth adores Culture Club – both the mayhem and success of their June tour has cemented our love affair with the iconic 80’s pop band. The tour will feature the original line-up: singer Boy George, guitarist/keyboardist Roy Hay, bassist Mikey Craig and drummer Jon Moss. Says the band “after the success of our June visit and the huge warm welcome we received from Australian fans, we have decided to come back and do it all again – you simply can’t get rid of us that easily!’’
Culture Club have been wowing audiences across the globe as part of their worldwide tour. Musically they are sounding better than ever before as they are joined by extra percussionists, keyboard players, backing singers and a horn section. This bigger line up has added a whole new element of warmth and sound to their live shows, of which, are consistently receiving glowing reviews. Culture Club have continued to stay relevant and are still as remarkable now as they were back then.
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.
