Here is not a country in the world that doesn't know the names of Boy George and Culture Club.  Grammy Award winners Culture Club sold in excess of 100 million singles and over 50 million albums, and were one of the biggest pop bands of the 1980s.  They achieved seven straight Top 10 hits in the UK, nine Top 10 singles in the USA and nine Top 20 singles in Australia.  They had number 1 singles in over a dozen countries and multi platinum album sales across the world, and were first group since The Beatlesto have three Top Ten hits in America from a debut album.  They were also the first group in music history to have an album certified diamond in Canada.  The band consisted of Mikey Craig (bass guitar), Roy Hay (guitar and keyboards), Jon Moss (drums and percussion) and flamboyant front man Boy George (lead vocals.)
 
And now the original line-up have confirmed they are to play live dates across the UK in 2014 for the first time in over 15 years.  Prior to these live dates Culture Club will be going into the studio to record new material, with producer Youth (Paul McCartney, The Verve, Embrace) for an album to be released early in 2015.
