The rumors had been swirling, but now it’s official: iconic UK pop singer Boy George will be performing in Israel in November.
George, the 56-year-old known for his eclectic style and androgynous look, will be taking the stage with his original band, Culture Club, on November 7 at Menora Mivtachim Arena in Tel Aviv.
George and the rest of Culture Club – Roy Hay, Mikey Craig and Jon Moss – formed in the 1980s and were responsible for some of the biggest hits of that decade. From “Do You Really Want to Hurt Me” to “Karma Chameleon,” “Time (Clock of the Heart)” and “The War Song,” the band gained international fame.
In 1986 they broke up, and George pursued a solo career.
But 30 years later, in 2016, they reunited and launched an international tour, hitting dozens of cities across the globe. The band will head from Tel Aviv to Iceland, and then New York.
The last time George performed in Israel was in 2014, when he took part in the opening events of Gay Pride Week in Eilat. He also played in Israel in 2010, and performed with the Culture Club in 1985.
According to the concert organizers in Israel, the band said that “Our gig in Tel Aviv in the ‘80s was one of our most memorable and we are so looking forward to returning to Israel.”
