Boy George, Culture Club could reunite for 30th anniversary



Culture club Boy George told the BBC he’s considering reuniting Culture Club in 2011 to celebrate the group’s 30th anniversary, according to Rolling Stone.

“We’ll see. It’s all about my mood at the time,” George said. “I think we could do a one-off gig or maybe a small tour.”

Culture Club’s debut album Kissing to be Clever actually was released in 1982, Rolling Stone points out, but the band actually formed in 1981. The band has split up twice -- once in 1986 before reuniting and breaking up again in 1998. In recent years, Boy George has spent more time in courtrooms than on concert stages.

Today's fun question: What '80s band do you most want to see reunite and tour?

Of course, I have my top 5 picks:

1. THE SMITHS: Rumor has it that festival after festival keeps throwing money at them to reunite. They'll give in eventually, I predict.

3. FRANKIE GOES TO HOLLYWOOD: Again, rumors swirled in 2009 that a reunion was a done deal, but singer Holly Johnson nixed it. Again, this feels like it's only a matter of time.

3. OINGO BOINGO: Danny Elfman's bad case of tinnitus, a result of years on the road, reportedly is one big reason they called it quits.

4. STEVE PERRY, DENNIS DEYOUNG: Nothing against Journey or Styx today, but it'd be comforting to see each band tour once more with their classic lineup.

5. NEW ORDER: Give this one some time. The breakup only came three years ago.
