Boy George leaks upcoming BBC4 Culture Club documentary
BBC4 are to broadcast an hour-long documentary on Culture Club’s reunion on March 6.
However, Boy George has said the programme is “super-tabloid and reveals nothing new”. On Friday, George tweeted a link to the entire show via production company Mentorn’s website, which was meant to only be accessible to the TV industry only.
The show, Boy George And Culture Club: Karma To Calamity, is directed by Mike Nicholls, who previously made Living TV’s documentary Living With Boy George in 2008. According to the BBC, the show will “reveal the iconic band’s personalities as they attempt to reunite and overcome their tempestuous past”.
The band’s reunion has been on hold since they cancelled last December’s arena tour when a polyp was discovered on Boy George’s vocal chords. New song More Than Silence, their first new material since 1999’s Don’t Mind If I Do album, was released last November but there has been no word as to the release of new album Tribes.
The album was due out in April, and Culture Club’s page on funding site Pledge Music implies it will still be released that month, but there has been no public activity since the tour was cancelled. After posting the link to the BBC4 documentary, George tweeted: “Culture Club: the great imploding inevitable. Lol!”
