Boy George's inimitable style and soulful voice were first brought to the attention of audiences on both sides of the Atlantic by his band, Culture Club. As the frontman of Culture Club—a band that mixed new wave and George's blue-eyed soul with rock and reggae—George took center stage with his wild outfits and elaborate makeup. His daring style, musical talent and unique persona attracted famous fans such as Andy Warhol and Keith Haring.

The band released its debut album Kissing To Be Clever in 1982. The album's third single, "Do You Really Want to Hurt Me?" reached #1 in sixteen countries and #2 in the United States. Quickly followed by "Time (Clock Of The Heart)", which reached the US #2, and "I'll Tumble 4 Ya", which reached #9, this made Culture Club the first group since the Beatles to have three top 10 hits from a debut album. The group's second album, Colour By Numbers, produced what was arguably their biggest hit, "Karma Chameleon". George and Culture Club sold over 100 million singles and 50 million albums - there was not a country in the world that didn't know the names of Boy George and Culture Club. George was photographed by everyone from Richard Avedon to Lord Snowden to Steven Meisel.

In 1987 George launched his solo career with the album Sold, which saw several hit singles in the UK. Over the next five years, Boy George would release four more albums; Tense Nervous Headache in 1988, Boyfriend in 1989, High Hat in 1989 and The Martyr Mantras in 1991 on his own label, More Protein. 1992 brought him his first substantial hit in the US as a solo artist, a cover of "The Crying Game" for the movie of the same name. The song was produced by the Pet Shop Boys and reached the top 20 in the Billboard charts.

Boy George's prolific songwriting continued with Cheapness and Beauty in 1995 and The Unrecoupable One Man Bandit in 1999, with several unreleased recording sessions in between. "When Will You Learn" was also nominated for a Grammy in the Best Dance Recording category.

Then, beginning in 2001, George helmed the production of his hit musical, "Taboo." Performances ran both in London and on Broadway through 2004 and the score was nominated for a Tony Award. Since then George has performed around the world including touring as a DJ in Australia, Asia, Europe and Canada. He has also recently written tracks for Kylie Minogue and will be touring North American for the first time in a decade as a solo artist.
