Culture Club return to Utilita Arena Newcastle in December 2024 with very special guests Tony Hadley and Heaven 17

Music icons Boy George and Culture Club are thrilled to announce a show at Utilita Arena Newcastle,
celebrating their first two monumental albums, ‘Kissing to Be Clever’ and ‘Colour by Numbers’.

Culminating at London’s The O2, the prolific band will perform these landmark albums in their entirety. Fans can expect to hear all the classic hits, including “Do You Really Want to Hurt Me,” “Karma Chameleon,” “Time (Clock of the Heart)”, “Church of the Poison Mind,” right up to their current releases.
‘Kissing to Be Clever’, Culture Club’s chart-topping 1982 debut, propelled the band to international stardom.

This Grammy-nominated album established their signature sound, a captivating blend of new wave pop and reggae, further enhanced by Boy George’s soulful vocals. Thematically, the album explored universal themes of love, loneliness, and societal pressures.

Following the phenomenal success of their debut, Culture Club returned in 1983 with ‘Colour by Numbers’, solidifying their place as pop icons. This critically acclaimed sophomore album, which garnered multiple awards and sold over 10 million copies worldwide, featured the band’s biggest hit to date, “Karma Chameleon.”

The infectious song topped charts globally and became the biggest-selling UK single of that year.
On this brand-new tour Boy George and Culture Club will be joined by very special guests synth-pop legends Tony Hadley and Heaven 17. Tony Hadley will perform tracks to commemorate the two classic albums ‘True’

and ‘Parade’, whilst Heaven 17 will perform tracks from their first two renowned albums ‘Penthouse and
Pavement’ and ‘The Luxury Gap’.

Excited for the new dates Boy George says: ‘I am calling this ‘The Zero Arguments Tour’ because we are
performing our first two albums ‘Kissing To Be Clever’ and ‘Colour By Numbers’ exactly as they were made and in exact order. I love the idea of this because some of these songs are fan favourites and have never been performed. I think it will be really special for the fans.’

Tickets for Culture Club at Utilita Arena Newcastle on Saturday 7th December go on sale from
Friday 14th June at 9:30AM from www.utilitaarena.co.uk
