Boy George and the Original Culture Club to Perform at The Pearl at Palms Casino Resort August 21
Legendary U.K. band Culture Club with Boy George will bring their U.S. tour to The Pearl Concert Theater inside Palms Casino Resort on Aug. 21, 2016 at 8 p.m. 

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. They achieved stunning success by racking up seven straight Top 10 hits in the U.K. and nine Top 10 singles in the U.S., Culture Club became a cultural phenomenon and an award-winning, chart-topping group. Central to the band’s appeal was the flamboyant front man Boy George, whose cross-dressing and heavy make-up created an image which was completely unique on the pop scene. George was also noted for his biting wit and frequently came up with cutting quips that won Culture Club media exposure on both sides of the Atlantic.

Culture Club grew out of the ashes of ‘Sex Gang Children,’ formed by George and bassist Mikey Craig. Drummer Jon Moss and guitarist Roy Hay came on board, and by 1981 the band had been renamed. Early in 1982 a deal was signed with Virgin Records, but success eluded them until the release of their third single in the autumn, the massive breakthrough hit “Do You Really Want To Hurt Me.” Shortly after this, Culture Club’s debut album Kissing To Be Clever, climbed to No.5 on the U.K. charts, while another non-album single “Time (Clock Of The Heart)” reached No.3.

The band’s U.S. success followed early in 1983 with the album and both singles riding high in the charts. A third single “I’ll Tumble 4 Ya” was taken from the album in the U.S., providing additional Top 10 success. By the time their second album Colour By Numbers was released in autumn 1983, Culture Club were the most popular pop group in the world. Colour By Numbers spawned “Karma Chameleon” a transatlantic No.1, which sold more than 5 million copies worldwide.

Culture Club reunited in 1998, releasing the two-disc set VH1 Storytellers/Greatest Hits. The first captures the band live in the VH1 studios tackling both old and new material while the second is a compilation of re-mastered hits. The band also had a No.4 hit in the U.K. that year with “I Just Wanna Be Loved.”
