Boy George

FORMER Culture Clubber Boy George will be spinning at Opera Ultralounge in Winnipeg on Oct, 3 as part of a North American DJ tour with collaborator DJ Mark Vedo. Tickets are $25 plus fees and are available at diyobo.com.

According to a new interview with Billboard, the '80s pop icon-turned-house DJ is releasing a new studio album in October called This Is What I Do.

"I've been DJing for 25 years and I've played a lot in America but not since what you call the 'EDM (electronic dance music) explosion,'" George tells Billboard. "That happened in my absence. It will be really interesting coming back because obviously I don't play that stuff. What I play is really more rooted in the original house music that came from America back in the day."

This is the first time in seven years that Boy George has toured in North America. The last time he was on this side of the pond he was performing community service for a misdemeanor charge in New York City.
