Having just seen George do a solid solo gig this spring in LA (see review elsewhere on this blog), I'm really looking forward to catching him with the guys on tour. Here's the lowdown...

Legendary UK band Culture Club have announced east and west coast dates in North America this fall and have confirmed a new album is in the works and due for release in early 2015.

The tour is set to commence in November on the west coast and, for the first time in 14 years, all the original Culture Club band members - Mikey Craig (bass guitar), Roy Hay (guitar and keyboards), Jon Moss (drums and percussion) and frontman Boy George (lead vocals) - will perform together.

Tickets for their upcoming North American shows go on sale this Friday.

Boy George will also be making an appearance Thursday as a speaking guest alongside Taylor Swift on NBC's Late Night with Seth Meyers, 12:35AM ET/11:35PM CT.

With a UK arena tour announcement, the band also entered the recording studio with producer Youth (The Verve, Killing Joke, The Cult, Crowded House, Primal Scream) and have started working on a new album due for release in 2015.
