Transgender reality TV star receives standing ovation from Greek Theatre audience
Caitlyn Jenner introduced Culture Club onto the stage during their Los Angeles gig last night. See below for fan-shot footage from the concert now.
Jenner appeared in the Greek Theatre stage prior to the band’s second gig at the venue this week. She introduced the band and received a standing ovation from the crowd before the band arrived to perform.
Witnesses report that the transgender Olympic athelete said: “Caitlyn Jenner in the house for her first Culture Club concert!” as she arrived on stage and later added: “This is going to be a good group. Thank you so much. Enough about me. Thank you for being here. This is so much fun for me.’
Boy George later mentioned their unexpected compere, saying to the crowd: “I expected a standing ovation for her and I wasn’t disappointed. We need to celebrate the kinds of changes that are happening.’
The night before (Thursday, July 23), Boy George was the musical act at Jenner’s religious naming ceremony. Held at her Malibu home, the ceremony was to celebrate Jenner’s recent transition.
Culture Club also played the Greek Theatre on Thursday night, with Jack Black getting on stage with the band to perform a cover of David Bowie’s ‘Starman’.
