WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) – The Wilson Center at Cape Fear Community College is thrilled to announce that pop sensation Boy George & Culture Club will be performing at the Wilson Center on September 13, 2022 at 7:30 p.m.

Culture Club needs no introduction. With a career spanning over 30 years, the GRAMMY® Award winners rose to international stardom in the 1980s as one of Britain’s greatest exports of the 20th century.

When Boy George and Culture Club exploded onto the scene in 1982, they sent shockwaves around the world and changed popular culture forever, altering perceptions of music, fashion and art simultaneously. .

Over the next three decades, the Boy George/Culture Club name became an iconic global brand.

In 1984, the group won the Grammy Award for Best New Artist, as well as Best British Group and Best British Single at the BRIT Awards.

Culture Club became the first band since the Beatles to have three top 10 hits in America from a debut album, and the first band in music history to have a Diamond-certified album in Canada.

The new romantic pop sensations went on to hit seven UK Top 10 singles, nine US Top 10 singles and nine Australian Top 20 singles – including “Karma Chameleon” and “Do You Really Want to Hurt Me” and have continued to sell over 100 million singles and 50 million albums worldwide.

Culture Club is undoubtedly a legend in its time, with frontman Boy George hailed as one of the first true unapologetic innovators in the world of music and fashion – and they’re clearly back to stay.
