Has there ever been a karma chameleon like Boy George? From his early days in the 1980s channeling punk-influenced androgyny, sweet revolutionary musings and experimental styles into soulful and immediate pop music, Boy George is and has been a star unafraid to cut deep with melodic profundity, torchy longing and a sexual fluidity that feels more relevant than ever. The English artist is back in town with his old bandmates from Culture Club for a night of catching tears and letting go with special guest Tom Bailey of the Thompson Twins, another pop survivor of the second British invasion.
