This will be the first time the Eighties group has performed together in 15 years, and will add to an already incredible line-up at the castle on Saturday 19 July.
“Jon, Mikey, Roy and me are all looking forward to Culture Club coming together and playing live for the first time in 15 years for this BBC event in Edinburgh ahead of our UK tour in December.” – Lead singer of the Culture Club, Boy George
Presented by Alex Jones, the spectacular concert is to be shown on BBC One, ahead of the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
Previous acts confirmed for the event in Scotland’s capital city include Kaiser Chiefs, Smokey Robinson, Rizzle Kicks, Paloma Faith, Katherine Jenkins, Il Divo, One Republic, Taio Cruz, Alfie Boe and Pumeza.
The music will also be interspersed with comedy on the night, as Bill Bailey performs his unique brand of musical humour with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and Fred MacAulay makes a special guest appearance.
