One of the biggest acts in 80s pop is coming to New Zealand for the very first time this December.

Culture Club's Mikey Craig, Roy Hay and Jon Moss will be led by flamboyant front-man Boy George in performing all their hits, from Karma Chameleon and Do You Really Want To Hurt Me, to Victims and Church of the Poison Mind.

The band is known for breaking records, including being the first multi-racial band and the first to have an openly gay front-man. They're also the first since The Beatles to have three top ten hits in America from a debut album.

They've sold more than 150 million albums worldwide to date, topped charts around the world, won Grammy awards, gone multi-platinum several times.


And now you can see them right here in New Zealand as part of their first global tour in more than a decade.

Culture Club will play Christchurch's Horncastle Arena on December 2, and Auckland's Vector Arena on December 4.

Tickets go on sale via Ticketek (Christchurch) and Ticketmaster (Auckland) on Monday, October 3.
