This is their first full tour in over 12 years, spanning 40 cities across the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Australia and Asia. Known for dominating the charts worldwide with their classic hits, including “Karma Chameleon,” “Do You Really Want To Hurt Me,” “Time (Clock of the Heart),” “Miss Me Blind” and “I’ll Tumble 4 Ya.”
Boy George and his reunited bandmates pulled in raves for last year’s mini-tour.
The Orange County Register said they “provided soul aplenty, thanks to a large backing band consisting of female singers, a horn section and George’s own burnished vocals,” adding that “Church of the Poisoned Mind” was “as vibrant as ever!” And Jim Farber of the New York Daily News wrote that the concert “re-emphasized George as an outsider who found a path to acceptance by his sheer lovability.”
In addition to George, the lineup features Mikey Craig on bass, Roy Hay on guitar and keyboards and Jon Moss on drums and percussion.
Reunited in 2014, they’ve been in the studio putting the finishing touches on an album titled “Tribes.”
