Boy George has cancelled the Culture Club reunion tour due to illness, full details are below.
The hugely popular 80s group were set to tour the UK and US later this month, the band's first shows in over 12 years, however Boy George has revealed throat issues have lead to all the forthcoming dates being cancelled.
The singer revealed he has found a polyp on his throat, which may need to be operated on in the future, thus affecting his vocal ability.
Speaking to BBC news, the frontman expressed his sadness at the circumstances: "I want to be able to perform to the best of my ability and the specialist has told me that right now that will be impossible."
The group were scheduled to play 10 shows in the US before coming back to the UK for 10 arena dates around the country.
