Boy George & Culture Club back at NYS Fair for a free concert

The Great New York State Fair has added two more concerts to the 2022 lineup.

Boy George and Cultural Club will return to NYS Fair on Tuesday, August 30 for an 8 p.m. performance at Chevy Park. The group is known for hits from the 1980s like “Karma Chameleon”, “Do You Really Want to Hurt Me”, “It’s a Miracle”, and “I’ll Tumble 4 Ya”.

During their performance at the 2016 Fair, which drew 17,900 fans to Chevy Court, Boy George encouraged the crowd to “dance like nobody’s watching, love like you’ve never been hurt and dress like it was Halloween”.

“We can’t wait to bring back their infectious energy, and what a pleasure to be able to add this fun and colorful group to our diverse lineup,” said Sean Hennessey, Acting Show Manager.

And rising country singer Alex Miller will play at Chevy Court on Thursday, Sept. 1 at 1 p.m. The former “American Idol” contestant, who wowed judge Luke Bryan with his retro sound, also performed at the fair last year.

All Chevrolet Music Series concerts are free with fair admission.

More than 20 concerts have been announced so far for the 2022 New York State Fair, which begins in less than two months. Chevy Park and Chevy Court are scheduled to perform two shows per day.
