Do you all remember those songs by the awesome Boy George and The Culture Club??
Now I have some great news because Boy George is back and is touring again! Wahoo! They will be playing at Foxwoods on Friday July 31st at 8 pm. This is one concert you do not want to miss!
Arguably one of the biggest bands of the 80’s, they’ll be playing selections from their nine top 10 singles in the US, as well as their own favorites. If you do not know who they are, you are seriously living under a rock. I am SO EXCITED for this concert to see my favorite 80s band hit the stage again!
