Boy George to perform for NYC Sanitation Dept.

He'll return to the place where he carried out community service

Boy George to perform for NYC Sanitation Dept.
Boy George has announced he will perform at the New York City’s Department of Sanitation Family Day this summer to say thank you for “the kindness shown to him by the Department of Sanitation of New York.”

The show will take place on August 17, when the singer will perform for over 5,000 NYC Sanitation workers and their families at a picnic with entertainment taking place at the Department of Sanitation training facility in Brooklyn.

Boy George recently announced his first US tour in over ten years. The former Culture Club frontman-turned-solo artist made headlines in the US in 2006 when he was sentenced to garbage duty after a judge charged him with wasting police time for falsely reporting a burglary in his New York apartment.

The singer was permitted to carry out garbage duty in the grounds of the city’s Sanitation Department due to the level of media interest in his community service.
