Boy George and Culture Club have been honored with the Music Icons Award at the Virgin Holidays Attitude Awards 2018.
George is a rare breed of pop star. He’s never really been much fussed about what people think of him. Not now, and not 30 years ago when Culture Club first broke new ground.
They were a band that could only have been born out of the renegade spirit of the Eighties, which took pride in challenging a world slowly marching towards capitalist conservatism and traditional values.

Happy 35th Anniversary to Culture Club’s second studio album Colour By Numbers, originally released October 10, 1983.

Boy George & Culture Club lit up The Late Late Show on Thursday night (Oct. 4) with a moving performance of “Life” from their upcoming album of the same name, which is due out on Oct. 26.
