Boy George Talks Culture Club Reunion With ET: 'It's Been Worth the Wait'

"It's taken about two years to get this together, but it's been worth the wait," he tells us. "We had to find our mojo. We've made a new record and that was important for me. I just felt it couldn't just be about nostalgia -- we had to do something new."

Culture Club formed in London in 1980 and went on to sell more than 100 million singles and 50 million albums. The quartet nabbed their first Grammy Award for Best New Artist in 1984 and were the second U.K. band (after The Beatles) to have three Top 10 hits in America from their debut album alone. Among their biggest hits: "Do You Really Want to Hurt Me?" "Karma Chameleon" and "The War Song."

The fall tour marks the first time that all four original members have re-united in more than 14 years. (See tour dates below.) Boy George, Roy Hay, Mikey Craig and Jon Moss are also hard at work in the studio with legendary producer Youth.
