“Boy George, You’ve Still Got It!”
Calling all karma chameleons: Culture Club is back on the road to promote their latest album Tribes!
Verizon Theatre in grand Prairie, Texas was filled with excited fans waiting to hear the soulful, silky voice of Boy George, and to relive the ’80s.
They were not disappointed. Boy George had the audience in the palm of his stylish hand all night.
Culture Club’s original lineup is back together, Mikey Craig on bass guitar, Roy Hay on guitar and keyboards, Jon Moss on drums and Boy George grooving front and center.
Through three wardrobe changes, he gave a mix of new and old soul, reggae and dance-worthy tunes that thrilled us all.
Great stories and glimpses into his world and thoughts added to the mix of old favorites like, I’ll tumble 4 You, Everything I Own, Do you Really Want To Hurt Me?, and yes, Karma Chameleon!
The 55 year old George gave advice on love and life’s challenges, and interacted with fans all evening. Some special moments included songs, The Crying Game and one of my favorites, Black Money.
After the show I met the Jonathan Prough family Boy George talked about on stage. They came decked out and actually got to meet and spend time with Boy George before the show. They said he could not have been nicer, and spent quite a lot of time signing autographs and items. There was a very long line of Boy George fans waiting to take pictures with this Oklahoma family!
The opening band was GROVES. It’s members, Stephen Salisbury on Vocals/Guitar, Reid Guidry on Bass and Will Smith on Drums, were a wonderful surprise!
They have a smooth upbeat and driving sound that charmed the audience before the first song ended. Trust me, you need to follow this band. They are ready to rocket to a long successful career. http://wearegroves.com/
I’m still dancing!
