EuroPride 2018 presents Boy George and Culture Club on August 18 in Gothenburg, Sweden
”It feels amazing to come back to Sweden and especially to Gothenburg and be a part of such a fantastic event as EuroPride. I hope as many as possible will join us for an evening full of greatest hits and love!” says Boy George.
As a crescendo of the EuroPride week in Gothenburg, Boy George and Culture Club will put on the concert of the summer at Götaplatsen, free of charge and open to everyone.
Since their inception in 1981 Grammy Award winning legends Boy George and 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".
About the upcoming concert in Sweden Boy George says, “We put together an amazing show that is going to be filled with hits and fabulous memories, we know it will be hands down this summer’s best night out”. The concert at Götaplatsen, with a capacity of 80 000 spectators, will definitely be the highlight of the summer.
The group is fronted by British singer/songwriter Boy George, who is universally recognized as one of music's iconic artists. George was recently presented with the Ivor Novello lifetime achievement award in 2015 for his contribution to the music industry.
Roy Hay, Mikey Craig and Jon Moss make up the remaining original line up set to tour.
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!"
- critic Bob Lefsetz (review of show at The Greek Theatre)
