International superstars Culture Club have announced they will be touring Australia later this year. Culture Club are led by front man, Boy George, currently endearing himself to new Australian audiences as their favourite coach on TV’s top rated show The Voice. Thus, this tour is bound to take Culture Club to a large legion of new fans.

In 2016, their 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 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. For nearly three decades, fans of the Thompson Twins have been waiting for more live performances from one of the biggest bands of the 80’s. 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. Says Tom: “This will be the first time I’ve sung the Thompson Twin’s hits in decades. It’s taken a long time, but now I’m really looking forward to playing those songs to some of the fans that were there first time around.”

Featuring Grace Knight on vocals and Bernie Lynch on guitar and vocals, 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, ‘We Will Together’, ‘The City of Soul’ and ‘Can’t Wait to See You.’ 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).

The Human League will be special guests for Perth audiences only (as part of the Culture Club tour). The Human League have sold millions of records, inspired two generations of artists, written some of the all-time great classic pop songs, had No. 1’s across the world and yet still remain fiercely independent. Watch this space for more Human League headline shows to be announced in other cities in the coming weeks.

KISS JOINS WITH THE COLLINGWOOD FOOTBALL CLUB FOR COMMEMORATIVE TOUR T-SHIRT
They are the giants of their respective fields and have two of the most fanatical, dedicated fan bases imaginable. It’s a match made in heaven!
Legendary rock band KISS and the biggest sporting club in Australia, the Collingwood Football Club, today announced they have teamed up to produce a very special, one-off commemorative T-shirt – KISS MAGPIE ARMY.
This collector’s item has been produced to celebrate the iconic band’s return to Australia in October to perform for the “KISS Army” as part of their 40th anniversary world tour.
It’s no secret KISS has had a love affair with Australia which goes back to their very first visit 35 years ago. The band loves being here and was keen to offer fans a fun “Australian-specific” item of merchandise to mark this special anniversary tour. But what?
In August 2013 Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons became co-founding partners of the only football team of any kind in the greater Los Angeles area – LA KISS ™. The team is part of the US Arena Football League. Suffice to say Stanley and Simmons are huge football fans and so an alignment with the biggest football club in Australia seemed the perfect fit.
This amazing T-shirt features incredibly detailed drawings of the four iconic KISS faces on the front with the KISS and Collingwood FC logos, while the back is emblazoned with the words ‘KISS MAGPIE ARMY”.
This incredible one-off collector’s item – which is a combined KISS, Collingwood Football Club and AFL promotion – is sure to be hugely popular with both the KISS Army and avid Pies supporters.

 
The T-shirt retails for only $40 plus postage & handling and is available for purchase for a strictly limited time period from Thursday July 16 9.00pm until Friday October 2 through both the KISS (www.KISSONLINE.com) and Collingwood Football Club (shop.collingwoodfc.com.au) websites.
Fans may also purchase the T-shirt in a bundle with a Gold Reserve concert ticket for the Friday October 9 show at Rod Laver Arena for a reduced price of $140, from Ticketek: http://premier.ticketek.com.au/shows/show.aspx?sh=KISSCOLL15
KISS arrives in early October for a two-song performance on the Grand Final Footy Show live from Rod Laver Arena before heading to Perth to begin their Australian tour.
Expect to see a multitude of KISS MAGPIE ARMY T-shirts during the tour!
