Boy, we have missed you blind!

Culture Club comes back to Hampton Roads this weekend as the headliner at the American Music Festival in Virginia Beach. They will appear Sunday evening at 7:30 on the 5th Street Stage at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront.

Culture Club was formed in 1981 with international star Boy George at its center.  The band’s second album, “Colour by Numbers,” sold more than 10 million copies worldwide and is certified triple platinum in the UK and quadruple platinum in the US. It appeared on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 100 Best Albums of the 1980s and is also included in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die.

The band had several international hits including “Do You Really Want to Hurt Me,” “Time (Clock of the Heart),” “I’ll Tumble 4 Ya,” “Church of the Poison Mind,” “Karma Chameleon,” “Miss Me Blind,” “Victims,” “It’s a Miracle,” “The War Song,” “Move Away,” and “I Just Wanna Be Loved.”

They were one of the innovative bands that led the MTV video revolution and are considered one of the most representative and influential groups of the 1980s. They have sold more than 50 million records. Ten of their singles reached the US Top 40.
