Boy George: Boy George's real name is George O'Dowd. He was born in Eltham, Kent in 1961. During the early 80's he became a regular in London on the "New Romantic" club scene. His flamboyant cross-dressing style and his appearances at clubs in London were regularly featured in magazines.

From 1979 he worked as a DJ alongside Jeremy Healy until he joined forces with DJ Michael Craig and drummer Jon Moss in 1982 to form the 80's super group Culture Club. Over the next four years, the group made history with their music including the huge hits "Karma Chameleon" and "Do You Really Want To Hurt Me". The group dissolved in 1986.

Boy George struggled through a heroin addiction during some rough years before he came clean in 1987and re-emerged as a solo singer with "Everything I Own", which gave him his first solo #1 hit.

In 1989 he formed his own record label, More Protein, and fronted a new band called Jesus Loves You. His autobiography, Take It Like A Man, recalling his extraordinary life, was published in 1995. Culture Club briefly reformed in 1999 for a tour and a new album.

Today Boy George is recognized foremost as a leading dance music DJ, a solo artist and for his Broadway musical Taboo.

The B-52s: While the B-52s certainly wouldn't be as popular and successful as they are with singers Cindy Wilson, Kate Pierson, and drummer Keith Strickland, it's Paul Schneider's unique voice that makes the music of this American rock band unmistakeable. Their timeless songs have become the perfect accompaniment to any party or good time, and their tour dates are themselves celebrations. While their recording careers have slowed in recent years, The B-52s still play more than 50 shows a year, including tour dates in 2011.

The B-52s formed after the individual members shared a Flaming Volcano drink at a Chinese restaurant. They soon developed a retro style complete with beehive hairdos for the ladies and lounge singer apparel for the men. The B-52s also developed a signature sound that combined dance music and surf rock that created a sort of upbeat new wave sound. This sound first appeared on their hit single, "Rock Lobster", which led to tour dates at underground clubs in New York and London. The B-52's debut eponymous album was a hit, becoming praised by critics and even garnering kind words from John Lennon before his death. Even after the death of guitarist Ricky Wilson, the B-52's continued to score hits with singles like "Love Shack" and "Roam" off of 1989's Cosmic Thing.

The B-52s latest album, Funplex, has also received great reviews from critics and reached #11 on the charts. The band has only a dozen or so remaining tour dates in 2011, which end on September 13. Buy your tickets on Eventful soon or risk waiting another year to see the B-52s live!
