Culture Club brought its 2016 world tour to a close last December with a special hometown concert at London’s Wembley Arena, and the event has been captured for a home video and album that will be released December 8.
Live at Wembley: World Tour 2016 will be available as a DVD/Blu-ray/CD package, a DVD/CD set, and a limited-edition two-LP colored-vinyl collection.
The concert featured frontman Boy George and company delivering inspired renditions of Culture Club’s biggest hits, including the chart-topping “Karma Chameleon.” Also at the show, the band played a cover of Bread‘s “Everything I Own,” a song Boy George recorded for his 1987 debut solo album, Sold. The concert finished with a performance of the T. Rex classic “Bang a Gong (Get It On).”
“We were thrilled to be back home for the final show of such a highly successful reunion tour,” says Boy George about the Wembley performance. “Being able to document this show on film before our hometown fans, friends and family, with all the original members of the band, where it all began for us in London in 1981, makes this concert film release that much more special for our fans to enjoy for many years to come.”
The DVD and Blu-ray also boasts bonus features including new interviews with the band members, and behind-the scenes footage of Culture Club discussing their career, and their excitement about performing at the famous arena.
