Could Culture Club be reuniting?

Boy George has revealed he might try to get his old band, Culture Club, back together again to mark their 30th anniversary next year.

The British singer, 48, told BBC radio he was on good terms with his former bandmates and said a small-scale reunion of the quartet could be on the cards.

"It's our 30-year anniversary next year so we may do something," Boy George said. "I don't know if it would be a prolonged thing. I think we could do a one-off gig or maybe a small tour.

"There's a part of me that thinks I should do it, but we'll see. It's all about my mood at the time."

Maybe UAE fans of the artist would be able to find out more from Boy George himself – recently, Emirates Business revealed he is to perform in Dubai this May.

Although it is yet to be confirmed whether he would be singing or DJing (he has previously appeared at former nightspot Trilogy), fans have expressed their delight at the '80s icon returning to the emirate.

Mike Thompson wrote in: "I grew up listening to Culture Club, so it would be great to see him perform in the region... It would even be better if the whole band got back together."

Culture Club was one of the biggest bands of the early 1980s, enjoying chart-topping success in the UK and US with Karma Chameleon, while Do You Really Want to Hurt Me was also a number one in the British charts.

Their 1983 album Colour by Numbers went six times platinum in the US. Since Culture Club split in 1986, Boy George, real name George O'Dowd, has forged a successful career as a disc jockey although the band did stage brief comebacks in 1998 and 2002.

However, he said:"Unfortunately, with all these reunions you get to a point where you start remembering why you left." (With inputs by Rachel McArthur and AFP)
