CULTURE CLUB
CHATEAU STE. MICHELLE
August 11


Another concert on my bucket list was finally fulfilled on Thursday, August 11, when Culture Club toured the US for the first time in 15 years with a visit at Chateau Ste. Michelle's summer concert series in Woodinville.

With Boy George's muse (and ex-lover), Jon Moss taking center stage at his drum set, followed by Roy Hay and Mikey Craig, and finally Boy George, 55, himself belting out 'Church of the Poison Mind' without Helen Terry, but with the key backup singer mimicking her voice perfectly, Boy George's voice sounded lower (ongoing throat issues) but didn't disappoint.

The dancing was instantaneous and the '80s were back with 'It's a Miracle (Dreams Are Made From Emotion),' then followed by 'I'll Tumble 4 Ya' and 'Move Away' (a song I heard in the Gay club in 1986 as I was coming out) and 'Time (Clock of the Heart).'

Then the mood changed to the slow moving 'Everything I Own' to the soulful 'Black Money' (which was mostly carried by the backup singers).

The best new song (from 2014) that I had never heard before was 'Like I Used To,' which had a good beat and relatable lyrics of 'I don't do emotion like I used to'; another great new song, a 'Different Man,' which has not yet been released, and which sounded more mature than anything else they've done, will appear on their new album, Tribes, coming out in early 2017 just in time for Culture Club's 35th anniversary of Kissing to be Clever.

More hits came with 'Miss Me Blind,' 'Do You Really Want to Hurt Me?' 'Victims,' and 'The War Song (Still Stupid).'

As expected, 'Karma Chameleon' was the encore along with a surprising choice of the Power Station's cover of 'Get It On.'

Could it be that the Boy has finally matured and grown up? 'Time' will see if 'It's a Miracle' or just Kissing to be Clever.
