International superstars Culture Club will be hitting up Australia as part of a massive tour later this year, and we have five double passes to give away to lucky Blank readers.
In 2016, Culture Club’s triumphant return sold out some of the world’s most iconic venues including the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles (two nights) and London’s famous Wembley Arena. Culture Club proceeded to sell out shows across the rest of the world including the UK, Europe and USA, making their resurgence one of the most noteworthy success stories of today. Musically, they are sounding better than ever as frontman Boy George and the rest of the original line-up including Roy Hay, Jon Moss, and Mikey Craig are now joined by an incredible group of great musicians including extra percussionists, keyboard players, backing singers and a horn section. This bigger line up now stands as an incredible musical revue that adds a whole new element of warmth and sound to their live shows, all of which are consistently receiving glowing reviews.
Special guests will be Thompson Twins’ Tom Bailey, who will play hits live for the first time in 27 years. Thompson Twins had huge hits – songs such as ‘Hold Me Now’, ‘Doctor Doctor’, ‘You Take Me Up’ and ‘Love On Your Side’ provided the soundtrack for so many people’s lives worldwide in the mid-eighties. It’s been 32 years since Thompson Twins have been to Australia and no doubt fans will welcome Tom Bailey back with open arms.
Eurogliders took the charts by storm in the 1980s. In 1984, Eurogliders released their album This Island, which spawned their No. 2 hit single, ‘Heaven (Must Be There).’ Another Australian top ten album, Absolutely, followed in 1985, which provided three further top ten singles, including ‘We Will Together’. Grace and Bernie, along with their superb band, have reunited to once again captivate audiences with their sophisticated and high-energy brand of pop. Eurogliders will play all shows (except Perth).
Culture Club will be hitting the stage at Brisbane Entertainment Centre on Saturday 2 December. The competition runs on Blank’s Facebook page until Tuesday 31 October.
