I was so excited on Friday night, I had the opportunity to go see Culture Club in concert! Having grown up loving Culture Club, but never having the chance to go see them, I had always wanted to see them!!
Culture Club originally toured Australia in 1984 at the hype of their success. Unfortunately, I was too young to go. They toured again in 2016 but the timing wasn’t right for me. But this year I was finally able to see them. My daughter and I both went, at the ICC in Sydney.

The support acts included the ’80s band Eurogliders…
Following were the Thompson Twins, who I absolutely adore, to perform. Although it only consisted of the singer, Tom Bailey and his new female backing group, they performed all the classic old hits!
Next was Culture Club! Boy George is a real showman! He performs excellently and in between songs he would engage the audience, giving background info on all the songs & joking a lot!
They played a few new songs from their new album coming out soon, mixed with all the old favourites including Do You Really Want To Hurt Me, Victims, Karma Chameleon, Its a Miracle, Time and Church of The Poison Mind, as well as others.

Boy George did 3 fabulous outfits for the night. He is such an original dresser with a funky style and always colour coordinated.. which I totally love!! He is equally as stylish and talented.
Three different outfit changes
As well as their own songs, Culture Club covered other hits like Prince’s Purple Rain and T Rex’s Bang a Gong. It was a fantastic show and you couldn’t help but sing along and dance!

Have you had the opportunity to see Culture Club? If you have, tell me what you thought. If you haven’t and your a fan, then it is a must to see them. You will LOVE it!!
