Did you miss them blind, San Antonio? The synth pop quartet, consisting of Roy Hay, Mikey Craig, Jon Moss and the ever-fabulous Boy George – Culture Club, collectively – will take the Tobin Center stage on Wednesday, August 3 at 7:30 p.m.
Perhaps one of the most diverse pop groups in history, the band, consisting of a gender-bending Irish frontman (George), a black British bassist (Craig), a Jewish drummer (Moss) and an Anglo-Saxon guitarist and keyboard player (Hay), chose the moniker that would serve them in their rise to fame based on the revelation of their heterogeneity. (Trump supporters scratch heads here).
I can't wait to experience the kind of jubilant Pride parade this show is gonna be! Boy George, no stranger to pageantry and showpersonship, is not one to disappoint. Particularly as his latest forays into the pop world have been working with such luminaries as Antony Hegarty, Groove Armada and Afrika Bambaataa.
Tickets go on sale Friday, April 22 and can be purchased online here, by calling (210) 223-8624 and at the Tobin Center Box Office (100 Auditorium Circle). They are priced at $46.50, $69.50, $86.50, $100 and select Gold Circle seating (fancy) is available for $175.
