CULTURE CLUB AT NEW YORK CITY BEACON THEATRE

****
Chuffed About The Boy

Story By: G. H. HARDING
 ****
Boy George In 1985



With visions of London’s King’s Road circa 1985 in my mind, I witnessed Culture Club’s return to NYC Monday night at The Beacon Theatre and despite some rough patches, really enjoyed it. Formed in 1981, the band comprised Boy George (lead vocals),Mikey Craig (bass guitar), Roy Hay (guitar and keyboards) and Jon Moss (drums and percussion). Their second album, Colour by Numbers, sold more than 10 million copies worldwide and has been certified triple platinum in the UK and quadruple platinum in the US. It was ranked No. 96 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 enjoyed a goldmine of hits, including the songs "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." 



Monday, the re-formed bunch kicked off with my personal favorite, “Church of then Poisoned Miond’ and took off from there. With a 13-piece band, including 3 sultry backup singers, adored with hats red, gold and green of course, and a horn section, the band sounded really good; with Hay really standing out on guitar and keyboards.



George, after years of substance abuse and well documented personal travails, doesn’t hit those high notes like he used too, but his charm was undeniable and he knew he had the crowd in the palm of his hand.
