Culture Club's reunion couldn't have come at a better time for rock. So says lead singer Boy George, never one to stifle an opinion.
Enter Culture Club, the colorful band from the '80s, now on a tour featuring fellow synth-pop '80s acts the Human League and Howard Jones. Titled "The Big Rewind Tour," it is expected to reach Southern California on its second leg in the fall.
"It's a nostalgia trip, there's no way of avoiding that," says George of the tour, the band's first in 13 years. "In terms of the theatrical aspects of Culture Club, and my character, there isn't really much competition in the music business right now. There's only Marilyn Manson. He's the only person with a hot look."
