Earlier this morning the TODAY Show decided to bring us back to the 80’s with their Throwback Thursday special featuring Boy George and the Culture Club.
Bassist Mikey Craig said, “We’ve got a new album coming out next year, which is a mixture of eclectic sounds and styles — just like us — and I can’t wait for it.” And legendary lead singer, George (O’Dowd), chimed in by saying:
“I have a really healthy relationship with my past, ’cause I haven’t had to live in it. So when I go back to doing the old songs, for me, it’s like fun. I kind of feel blessed to do what I do now. I feel really lucky to get paid to do what I love.”
The British band will embark on a North American tour this summer including stints at the Beacon Theatre in New York, Foxwoods in Connecticut, and the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles and HERE‘s a full list of their tour dates.
