Oh I think Culture Club will be the headline act without a shadow of a doubt. George seems to be king of Australia at the moment. CC on their 3rd tour of Oz in 18 months plus so much publicity for The Voice. I don't think CC have ever been a support band for The League.

Obviously I'm a huge Boy George fan but my love for CC is far less. THL are far superior to CC in every respect including live and in the studio.

As the combined show is probably a one-off, I'm not overly concerned about who supports who...just glad that hopefully THL are doing their own shows around the country =D

Thought that the League would eventually do Oz again, and in December confirms what we already knew, that there would be no UK winter tour this year. So I, for one, won't be seeing them live again until 2018. Dusts of Live at the Dome dvd.

Must've been a grand offer...speaking to SW last December they'd just turned a tour offer down...I was giving up hope of them ever coming back...if nothing else they get a nice warm December holiday!! :lol:

A month down the track, still no further word from either band or promoter as to dates/venues, or even IF this is really happening :/ Starting to get a little worried it's gone pear-shaped again :O

Does seem to be late for them to be announcing gigs but I hope you get to see them this year.

Still no venues and dates, perhaps not all finalised yet and they want to announce the whole tour at once. That may be good if it means more dates are being added.

Just noticed 2nd tier pricing of $100.81 tickets for the Ticketmaster shows for halfway back seating (closer to the stage seating still $131.38)

Philip did a TV interview with Australian TV (Today Show Extra) discussing the tour. No news, just the usual "What have you been up to since the 80's?" Sort of thing, and "What can fans expect at the shows?"...Philip's reply was "Oh, we just go and do the songs to the best of our ability, which is probably not very good these days...But we go and do our best, we try to get across the world and see people"
All in all he seemed very happy and upbeat.
Can't find it online unfortunately, did manage to quickly record it via digital camera so will see if i can upload it somewhere but don't hold your breath :D

Yeah, the YouTube one. It probably won't play on mobile devices.
