Hurts played live at a launch event for their debut album 'Happiness' at the Royal Institute Of British Architects last night (September 1), watched by Boy George.

The former Culture Club singer was among the invited guests to the lavish venue for the event, and was wearing a glittery green hat as Theo Hutcraft and Adam Anderson's band played a seven-song set.

Former Popstars judge Nicki Chapman was also in the crowd.

Hurts played:

'Silver Lining'
'Wonderful Life'
'Blood Tears And Gold'
'Sunday'
'Stay'
'Illuminated'
'Better Than Love'


'Happiness' is released on Monday (September 6) and the band will play a free in store gig at HMV in their hometown Manchester at 6pm (BST) on the day.
