Boy George & Culture Club have announced a series of exclusive UK outdoor shows as part of the Heritage Live Concert Series for 2021.
The multi-million selling group will perform at a very special concert at Kenwood on Hampstead Heath in London on Saturday 26th June, where Boy George, who lives locally to Kenwood, will celebrate his 60th birthday which falls the week prior.
Very special guests for the show will be Bananarama and Lulu who will perform with DJ Fat Tony who will get the party started.
Since their inception in 1981, Culture Club have sold more than 150 million records worldwide, recognised as a Grammy Award winning UK institution with a stream of classic hits including ‘Do You Really Want to Hurt Me’, ‘Karma Chameleon’, ‘Church of The Poison Mind’, ‘Victims’, ‘It’s A Miracle’ and ‘The War Song’
The group are fronted by singer/songwriter Boy George, universally loved as one of music’s most iconic artists who performs alongside original Culture Club members Roy Hay and Mikey Craig.
As the first multi-racial band with an openly gay front man, Culture Club set many records and established themselves as icons of British musical history and popular culture.
Originally formed as a trio in 1981, Bananarama became an omnipresent staple of the British pop music scene in the 80s consistently producing hit after hit, with timeless classics including ‘Shy Boy’, ‘Cruel Summer’ and ‘Really Saying Something’.
Their staying power would ultimately be solidified when they released ‘Venus’ which topped the US charts in 1986.
Their incredible run between 1982 and 2009 saw the group achieve a total of 28 singles in the UK’s Top 50 Singles Chart, and a Guinness World Record for the most chart entries ever for an all-female group.
