CD/DVD Review: Culture Club Celebrates Their 35th Anniversary With New Live Release

The multi-platinum selling group, Culture Club gathered together all of the original members and went on a 40-date world tour in 2016. Their show at England's Wembley Arena was captured for the band's newest release "Culture Club Live At Wembley." The first thing you notice is how timeless the quality of their music is. Culture Club had two Top 20 albums in the U.S. and four in the U.K. during the eighties and their songs were everywhere on radio and television.
 
Now, to celebrate the band's 35th anniversary they recorded their amazingly, energetic live show for this new Blu-ray, DVD, CD, vinyl release. The band's 80-minute performance covers all of their hits, including "It's A Miracle," "I Tumble For Ya" and "Do You Really Want To Hurt Me." They also throw in a couple cover songs, like a reggae version of Bread's " I Would Give Anything I Own" and the rocking show closer T. Rex's "Bang A Gong (Get It On)."
 
It's great to see Boy George interact with the audience and with the band, especially during the R&B ballad "Black Money" and the funky "Like I Used To." Culture Club get serious and invite the audience to sing-along during the chorus of "The War Song," before turning up the party lights for their biggest hit single "Karma Chameleon." Watching the video, you see how each member enjoys being on stage with the band that made them into rock stars. To find out more about "Culture Club Live At Wembley," please visit cultureclub.co.uk.
