Culture Club cancel North American tour dates

Culture Club have cancelled the remaining dates of their North American tour.

The iconic 80s pop group - fronted by Boy George - axed their show in Kelowna, Canada on Monday (14.11.16) with executives from the venue Prospera Place saying it was due to "personal matters beyond the control of the group", and now they have called off a further eight shows.

The 'Karma Chameleon' hitmakers' first gig in New Zealand in Christchurch on December 2 has also been axed, according to the band's official website.

It comes after frontman Boy George stormed out of at TV interview on New Zealand show 'Seven Sharp' on November 2, when journalist Toni Street asked him about his conviction for falsely imprisoning an escort.

The 55-year-old singer became irritate when he was asked about the victim complaining that the BBC had invited him to be a judge on 'The Voice UK' after he "ruined his life and never said sorry".

A furious George said: "You know what, why don't you move on to something more helpful, you know what I mean."

He then got out of his chair and said: "In fact, you know what ... thank you."

He later took to Twitter and fumed: "I will open that can of worms when I am ready. Not while things are going so well for me."

Culture Club are yet state why they have axed the shows.

The British band are expected to bring their biggest hits to The SSE Wembley Arena in London, England on December 14, where they will perform songs from their back catalogue including 'Karma Chameleon' and 'Do You Really Want to Hurt Me'.

The show will see original band members, Mike Craig, Roy Hay and Jon Moss, perform together in the UK for the first time since 2002 when they did a 20th anniversary concert at the Royal Albert Hall.
