Boy George concert at Englefield House this summer
IT has just been announced that Boy George & Culture Club are bringing some special guests to the grounds of Englefield House on Saturday, July 24, as part of the Heritage Live Concert Series.
Singer songwriter Boy George, one of music’s most iconic artists, performs alongside original Culture Club members Roy Hay and Mikey Craig.
Lulu, Kim Wilde and Gabrielle join Boy George on the Englefield tour date, shortly after he celebrates his 60th birthday, and DJ Fat Tony is getting the party started each night.
As the first multi-racial band with an openly gay front man, Culture Club set many records and established themselves as icons of British musical history and popular culture. Since their inception in 1981, they have sold more than 150 million records worldwide, recognised as a Grammy Award winning UK institution with a stream of classic hits including Do You Really Want to Hurt Me, Karma Chameleon, Church of The Poison Mind, Victims, It’s A Miracle and The War Song.
One of the bestselling female singers of the 1960s with her trademark song Shout, Lulu made her film debut in 1967 opposite Sidney Poitier in To Sir, with Love, and performed the title track. Lulu also was one of four joint winners of the 1968 Eurovision Song Contest with Boom Bang-a-Bang and later found success with her own self-titled BBC TV show; as well as having a hit with the title theme to the 1974 Bond classic The Man with the Golden Gun.
With her 1981 debut single Kids In America, Kim Wilde established herself as one of the biggest stars of the 1980s, including holding the record for being the most-charted British female solo act of the decade. She has sold more than 10 million albums and 20 million singles.
This year Gabrielle celebrates over 20 years of her incredible album Rise. With hit singles such as the title track, as well as Out of Reach, Sunshine, and Should I Stay, the album has gone on to achieve 4x platinum sales and was in the Top 10 album charts three summers in a row from 1999-2001.
DJ Fat Tony is the original superstar DJ. A mainstay of the London party scene having performed at some of the most legendary clubs of all time, and birthday parties for the likes of Madonna, Prince and Michael Jackson, Tony lit up Instagram with his DJ sets throughout lockdown providing a source of entertainment for many.
