About Boy George & Culture Club

After more than two decades and 150 million singles & albums sold globally, 2018 marks a new era for Boy George and Culture Club, as they are currently working on their first new music in 20 years. The tour setlist will celebrate some of their biggest hits and give fans a preview of their new songs.

As the first multi-racial band with an openly gay front man, Culture Club set many records and established themselves as icons of British musical history and popular culture.  The band reunited in 2014 and embarked on two worldwide sell-out tours over the following two years.  Looking ahead, 2018 marks a new era for Boy George and Culture Club, as they are set to commence a global tour throughout the Summer and release a new album later this year.

About Belinda Carlisle

Hailed as one of the most beautiful women in pop, Belinda was a former teen punk singer in the GoGos’s, during the 80’s she went solo and rocked both sides of the Atlantic, storming into the number 1 slot with her distinctive vocals on ‘Heaven Is A Place on Earth and hits such as ‘Leave a Light On’.

About the Thompson Twins’ Tom Bailey                   

The music and videos of the Thompson Twins became a fixture on hit radio and music television throughout the world in the eighties. For nearly three decades fans of the Thompson Twins have been waiting for more live performances from one of the UK’s much loved bands of that era. Now The Thompson Twins’ Tom Bailey, with a new band, will be touring and performing the Thompson Twins hits. The Thompson Twins’ Tom Bailey features Tom Bailey on vocals, keyboards, guitar, harmonica and percussion. His all-female band feature Charlotte Raven on vocals and keyboards, Amanda Kramer (The Psychedelic Furs/Information Society) on vocals and keyboards and Paulina Szczepaniak on electronic drums.

Much to TT fans delight, Bailey began writing contemporary songs again in 2016 and will be releasing a new album in 2018. The first track ‘Come So Far’ was released as a single in June 2016. Written from the perspective of a refugee in the current crisis the song is a moving portrayal of moving into the unknown. The single was released through Cooking Vinyl and all proceeds went to refugee charity Médicins Sans Frontières. A special numbered and signed 7” vinyl version of the single was also released through Pledge Music.
