Boy George to tour US for first time in a decade

Jaunt kicks off July 10 in Aspen

Boy George has announced a tour of the US and Canada which will see him perform all across the continent for the first time in ten years.

The tour which kicks off July 10 in Aspen will run through to August 23, where it will wind up in Dallas, TX.

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.
