Culture Club Plus special guest ALISON MOYET
Culture Club Cancel December UK Tour
It is with great sadness that iconic band Culture Club have had to cancel their December UK tour, including their date at Echo Arena on 8 December.
The tough decision has been made due to lead singer Boy George suffering from a serious throat condition, for which medical treatment is currently underway.
Boy George said:
‘I’m devastated but I want to be able to perform to the best of my ability and the specialist has told me that right now that will be impossible. I will focus on getting better and see all my fans soon’.
