Global icon Boy George and Culture Club can today confirm an all-new headline show at the UK’s largest open air theatre.

The multi-million selling pop legends will play Scarborough Open Air Theatre on Saturday August 14th.

Boy George, together with his chart-topping band, are rightly recognised as one of the first true, unapologetic innovators in the music and fashion world and irrevocably, of our time.

Since their inception in 1981, Culture Club have sold more than 150 million records worldwide. And they’re recognised as a true Grammy Award-winning UK institution. Their stream of classic hits includes ‘Do You Really Want to Hurt Me’, ‘Karma Chameleon’, ‘Church Of The Poison Mind’, ‘Victims’, ‘It’s A Miracle’ and ‘The War Song’.

“Relevant and important”

In 1984, the band picked up the Grammy Award for Best New Artists. And they also took the awards for Best British Group and Best British Single at the BRIT Awards.  They became the first group since The Beatles to have three Top 10 hits in America from a debut album. And the New Romantic pop sensations went on to achieve seven UK Top 10 singles, nine Top 10 singles in the USA, and nine Top 20 singles in Australia.  They are as relevant and important today as they have ever been.

Their 2021 line-up sees Boy George perform alongside original Culture Club members Roy Hay and Mikey Craig. Together with a stunning live band, they continue to sell-out headline shows around the world.

Culture Club join a stunning summer line-up at Scarborough Open Air Theatre. Headline shows include Stereophonics, Duran Duran, Olly Murs and Kaiser Chiefs.

Scarborough OAT venue programmer Peter Taylor said: “I’ve wanted to bring Boy George and Culture Club to Scarborough OAT for some time. So I’m delighted we have been able to make this happen for this summer. George remains one of the most colourful and iconic pop stars in British history, a true music star around the world. Culture Club’s live shows are a true spectacle, and this is going to be a really special night.”
