Grammy Award-winning legends Boy George & Culture Club and The B-52s will take over the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center on Saturday, September 29. Joined by special guest Tom Bailey of Thompson Twins, “The Life Tour” will bring fans from near and far to honor 80’s nostalgia and classic hits.
“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.
After more than two decades, 2018 marks a new era for Boy George & Culture Club, as they work on their first new music in 20 years. The tour setlist will celebrate some of their biggest hits and will give attendees an advance listen to new songs. Since their inception in 1981, Culture Club has sold more than 50 million albums and 100 million singles globally, 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, followed by the original lineup Roy Hay, Mikey Craig and Jon Moss.
Nearly 40 years and over 20 million albums into their career, The B-52s remain as one of rock music’s most beloved and enduring bands. Formed in 1976, the band is made up of Fred Schneider, Kate Pierson, Keith Strickland, Cindy Wilson and Ricky Wilson. From chart-topping hits like “Love Shack,” “Roam” and “Deadbeat Club,” to their thrilling re-emergence on the pop scene with their 2008 CD Funplex, the B-52s’ unforgettable dance-rock tunes will start a party that Downtown Las Vegas Events Center fans will never forget.
The music and videos of British 80’s group, Thompson Twins, grew to popularity with their #1 US Billboard hit “In the Name of Love.” Over 30 years later, the original group member Tom Bailey will bring the energy with his all-female band and perform songs from his new album that will release this year.
