Culture Club at Manchester Evening News Arena


Trips & Adventures – 18 November 2018

Thanks to Unique X who offered Out In The City a VIP experience at the Manchester Evening News Arena to see Culture Club, one of the most influential groups of the 1980’s.

In the UK they amassed twelve Top 40 hit singles between 1982 and 1999, including the number ones “Do You Really Want To Hurt Me” and “Karma Chameleon”, the latter being the biggest selling single of 1983. The highlights included the encores “Let’s Dance” by David Bowie and “Get It On” by T-Rex and my personal favourite “Everything I Own”.

The support acts were Tom Bailey (from the Thompson Twins) and Belinda Carlisle. Tom Bailey had an all female backing group and Belinda Carlisle had an all male backing group, but they were both really good. We all had a great night out.
