LEGENDS of 80s music Culture Club are heading to Australia in July for their first tour in more than 15 years.

 Culture Club, front by gay icon Boy George, became one of the first acts to crossover from the English alternative music scene into mainstream, achieve international success.

Their hit song Do You Really Want to Hurt Me and Karma Chameleon became global hits and during their career they sold 50 million records.

The debut album Kissing To Be Clever notched up three top 10 hits in the US in the 80s, making Culture Club the first band to do so since The Beatles.

The band will bring their original line-up to Australia which includes singer Boy George, guitarist/keyboardist Roy Hay, bassist Mikey Craig and drummer Jon Moss.

They’ll tour Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth and will be supported by Kids in the Kitchen for all four shows.

Danii Minogue will support Culture Club in Melbourne and ABBA tribute band Bjorn Again will support them in Brisbane and Sydney.

Tickets for the shows go on sale on Thursday April 14.
