Addaction joins Boy George on UK tour

The charity Addaction will join Boy George and Culture club as the official charity partner on their upcoming UK tour.

‘Life’ is Culture Club’s first new album in 19 years. It’s released on Friday the 26 October and features the single “Life” which amongst other things is about Boy George’s own recovery. He’s now 11 years sober.

More than 60 volunteers from Addaction will fundraise at Boy George’s 11-stop tour, beginning in Nottingham on 9 November. Our volunteers will also distribute calling cards to help people get advice and support through our online web chat service.


Paul Kemsley, Boy George’s manager said:

“I’m so very proud of Georges recovery and renaissance. He asked me to find a charity that he and the band could support so we could spread the love, help people and let them know that there is always light at the end of the tunnel. Addaction met this criteria, the work they do is vital on an individual's road to recovery and we are proud to be associated with them."

Karen Tyrell, Executive Director of External Affairs at Addaction said:

“We’re thrilled to be working with Boy George and Culture Club. He’s an iconic pop figure and a high profile example of how everyone can recover. We’re proud to be working with him and we’re excited to meet the fans over the next couple of months.”

The tour dates for Culture Club’s UK tour are available on the album website. You can watch the new video here. You can donate to Addaction here.
