Calling all ‘80s aficionados: What’s being called the summer’s hottest tour is coming to The Fabulous Fox!
The Life Tour: starring Boy George and Culture Club and The B-52s, with special guest Thompson Twins’ Tom Bailey will be live at the Fox Theatre on Thursday, Sept 6, at 7 p.m.
The Grammy Award-winning 80s legends Boy George and Culture Club today revealed plans for a major 2018 U.S. headline tour with the multi-platinum selling band The B-52s. “The Life Tour” will visit 40-plus cities across the U.S. with a stop in St. Louis.
“We put together an amazing show that is going to be filled with hits and fabulous memories, we know it will be hands down this summer’s best night out,” said Boy George.
After more than two decades and 150 million singles and records sold globally, 2018 marks a new era for Boy George and Culture Club, as they are currently working on their first new music in 20 years. The tour setlist will celebrate some of their biggest hits, plus gives fans an advance listen to new songs.
Since their inception in 1981, Culture Club have sold more than 50 million albums and 100 million singles totaling 150 million worldwide, led by their classic hits, “Do You Really Want to Hurt Me,” “Karma Chameleon,” and “I’ll Tumble 4 Ya.” The group is fronted by British singer/songwriter Boy George, who is universally recognized as one of music’s iconic artists of all time. The band reunited in 2014 embarked on two worldwide sold-out tours in 2015 and 2016.
It is well known that the B-52s are The World’s Greatest Party Band. And some 40 years and more than 20 million albums into their career, there can be no doubt as to why they remain one of rock music’s most beloved and enduring bands. From groundbreaking songs like “Rock Lobster,” “Dance This Mess Around” and “Private Idaho,” to chart-topping hits like “Love Shack” and “Roam” and “Deadbeat Club,” to their thrilling reemergence on the pop scene with their 2008 CD Funplex, the B-52s’ unforgettable dance-rock tunes start a party every time their music begins.
For almost three decades, fans of the Thompson Twins have been waiting for more live performances from one of the most iconic bands of the ‘80s. Now, The Thompson Twins’ Tom Bailey, with a new band, will be touring and performing the Thompson Twins hits. The Thompson Twins’ Tom Bailey features Tom Bailey on vocals, keyboards, guitar, harmonica and percussion. His all-female band feature Charlotte Raven on vocals and keyboards, Amanda Kramer (The Psychedelic Furs/Information Society) on vocals and keyboards and Paulina Szczepaniak on electronic drums.
