They'll tour across the US until the Fall.
Boy George is set to hit the road again with Culture Club this summer, with 40 dates across the US where the band will unveil some brand new material that they've been working on recently. They'll also be dropping their new album at the same time.

The eccentric singer announced yesterday (March 20th 2018) that he and Culture Club will be performing across the States, kicking off at the Saint Augustine Amphitheatre in Florida on June 29th 2018 and concluding at the Big Fresno Fair in California on October 5th.
They'll also perform in Houston, Nashville, Detroit, Chicago, Boston, Portland, Los Angeles and Las Vegas - the majority of the country's major cities.
Joining him on tour are the B-52s and Tom Bailey of the Thompson Twins, and while concert goers will of course be treated to classic hits like 'Karma Chameleon' and 'Miss Me Blind', he has also revealed that he'll be performing some new songs.
It's been more than six months since he signed a recording deal with BMG, and Culture Club will finally be launching a full album almost two decades on from their last release 'Don't Mind If I Do'. Entitled 'Tribes', the record will be released in June.
'I just want to release the album so it will get heard', Boy George told Billboard 'It would be smarter for us to put the record out when I have a social presence rather than relying on a little bit of nostalgia and the goodwill of the press and sporadic radio play.'
Boy George reunited with Culture Club for a tour in 2015, and they last toured together last year in Australia as well as South America, alongside a handful of UK dates. The lead singer dropped his last solo album, 'This Is What I Do', back in 2013.
