Book Now

LAMC Productions is beyond thrilled to announce that one of the most iconic and influential groups of the 1980s, ​Culture Club, will be performing in Singapore with the original line-up on ​Dec 11, 2017 at​ ​The​ ​Star​ ​Performing​ ​Arts​ ​Centre!

Culture Club A2

Culture​ ​Club​ ​is​ ​back​ ​on​ ​the​ ​road!​ ​Fans​ ​in​ ​Singapore​ ​can​ ​relive​ ​the​ ​’80s​ ​as​ ​the​ ​band perform​ ​their​ ​classic​ ​new​ ​wave​ ​hits​ ​on​ ​tour. Since​ ​their​ ​inception​ ​in​ ​1981, Culture Club have​ ​sold​ ​more​ ​than​ ​50​ ​million​ ​records worldwide,​ ​lead​ ​by​ ​their​ ​classic​ ​hits,​ ​”Do​ ​You​ ​Really​ ​Want​ ​to​ ​Hurt​ ​Me”,​ ​”Karma Chameleon”,​ ​and​ ​”I’ll​ ​Tumble​ ​4​ ​Ya”.

Culture​ ​Club​ ​was​ ​formed​ ​in​ ​London​ ​in​ ​the​ ​early​ ​‘80s​ ​by​ ​Boy George,​ ​an​ ​androgynous club​ ​kid​ ​who​ ​had​ ​previously​ ​sang with​ ​legendary​ ​new​ ​wave​ ​outfit​ ​Bow​ ​Wow​ ​Wow. Calling themselves​ ​Culture​ ​Club​ ​as​ ​a​ ​nod​ ​to​ ​their​ ​diverse​ ​cultural backgrounds,​ ​the band​ ​made​ ​their​ ​debut​ ​in​ ​1982​ ​with​ ​the​ ​album​ ​Kissing​ ​to​ ​be​ ​Clever.

Though​ ​the​ ​album’s​ ​first​ ​two​ ​singles​ ​failed​ ​to​ ​make​ ​much​ ​of​ ​a​ ​mark,​ ​third​ ​single​ ​“Do You​ ​Really​ ​Want​ ​to​ ​Hurt​ ​Me”​ ​topped​ ​charts​ ​around​ ​the​ ​world,​ ​catapulting​ ​the​ ​band​ ​to international​ ​super stardom​ ​virtually​ ​overnight.​ ​Their​ ​1983​ ​sophomore​ ​album​ ​Colour​ ​by Numbers​ ​was​ ​an​ ​even​ ​bigger smash,​ ​blowing​ ​up​ ​charts​ ​around​ ​the​ ​globe​ ​with​ ​catchy hits like​ ​“Karma​ ​Chameleon”​ ​and​ ​earning​ ​the​ ​band​ ​a​ ​Grammy​ ​in 1984​ ​for​ ​Best​ ​New Artist.​ ​Culture​ ​Club​ ​released​ ​two​ ​more​ ​albums​ ​in​ ​the​ ​mid-’80s​ ​to​ ​moderate​ ​success, but​ ​by​ ​1986​ ​Boy​ ​George’s​ ​struggles​ ​with​ ​addiction​ ​had​ ​pushed​ ​the​ ​band​ ​apart.​ ​They reunited​ ​in​ ​the​ ​late​ ​‘90s​ ​and​ ​released​ ​the​ ​1999​ ​album​ ​Don’t​ ​Mind​ ​If​ ​I​ ​Do​ ​and​ ​toured​ ​for a​ ​stint,​ ​but​ ​George’s​ ​successful​ ​career​ ​as​ ​a​ ​DJ​ ​soon​ ​led​ ​to​ ​another​ ​hiatus.​ ​Following​ ​a few​ ​one-off​ ​shows​ ​in​ ​2011,​ ​the​ ​band​ ​reunited​ ​in​ ​2014​ ​to​ ​record​ ​their​ ​sixth​ ​album​ ​Tribes –​ ​a​ ​highly​ ​anticipated​ ​return​ ​that​ ​had​ ​fans​ ​dying​ ​to​ ​catch​ ​them​ ​on​ ​tour​ ​in​ ​support​ ​of  the​ ​release.

The current​ ​lineup​ ​includes​ ​Boy​ ​George,​ ​Roy​ ​Hay,​ ​Mikey​ ​Craig​ ​and​ ​Jon​ ​Moss.​ ​Their​ ​recent shows​ ​have​ ​garnered​ ​rave​ ​reviews​ ​from​ ​the​ ​press​ ​since​ ​reforming. Culture Club is….”a​ ​true​ ​show​ ​band,​ ​with​ ​a​ ​master​ ​at​ ​it’s​ ​center.​ ​If​ ​you​ ​like​ ​to​ ​go​ ​out,​ ​if you​ ​like​ ​to​ ​feel​ ​good,​ ​if​ ​you​ ​like​ ​to​ ​be​ ​transported​ ​by​ ​music,​ ​if​ ​you​ ​are​ ​in​ ​search​ ​of authenticity​ ​in​ ​a​ ​land​ ​inundated​ ​by​ ​fake,​ ​…..then​ ​this​ ​is​ ​your​ ​gig!”​
