With their track record of No. 1 singles in over a dozen countries and multi platinum album sales across the globe, Culture Club’s original line up of Mikey Craig (bass guitar), Roy Hay (guitar and keyboards), Jon Moss (drums and percussion) and flamboyant front man Boy George (lead vocals) will perform all of their smash hits including Do You Really Want to Hurt Me, Time (Clock of the Heart), I’ll Tumble 4 Ya and Karma Chameleon.

“Karma Chameleon has been voted the anthem of the 80’s and after selling millions of albums it was only a matter of time until Culture Club would come together and go on tour again,” – said Thomas Ovesen, COO DONE Events. “With the iconic voice of Boy George, Dubai Tennis Stadium will no doubt be dancing and singing along when we throw the last big party and concert of the year!” continues Mr. Ovesen.
Culture Club catapulted on to the music scene and into the charts in 1982 with the international smash hit Do You Really Want to Hurt Me. The song went to No. 1 in the UK, as well as in over a dozen countries. The follow-up singles Time (Clock of the Heart) and I’ll Tumble 4 Ya also became Top 10 hits across the globe, making the band the first group since The Beatles to have three Top 10 hits in America from a debut album.
By the time their second album Colour By Numbers was released in the autumn of 1983, Culture Club were the most popular pop group in the world. Colour By Numbers spawned the legendary Karma Chameleon, a transatlantic No. 1, which sold over five million copies worldwide and became the best-selling single of 1983 in the UK. The band also achieved over 1 million sales in Canada, making Culture Club the first band in history to go triple platinum there.
Culture Club has commented on the upcoming show in Dubai saying, “We’re so excited and can’t wait to play for our Dubai fans. See you all on December 29th!“
Having achieved seven straight Top 10 singles in the UK, nine Top 10 singles in the USA and nine smash hits in Australia, the Grammy Award-winning Culture Club are set to bring their biggest hits back to the stage in Dubai this December!
