Fact Not Fiction

If you haven't heard about the forthcoming Here and Now Dubai, The Very Best of the 80's Concert, where have you been!! had your head in the sand?

I originally wrote about this in January, so some of you may remember it from there. I am a huge fan of the 80's, aren't we all? in particular, and this will come as no suprise to most of you know me well, Boy George. I remember Culture Club hitting the charts in 1982 with their platinum selling single "Do you really want to hurt me?", I was a fan from day one, I bought every album, had his posters on my bedroom wall. How was I to know that now, nearly 30 years later that Boy George would be performing in Dubai, and that Culture Club are getting back together and are to be touring next year to celebrate their 30th Anniversary.

Boy George will be performing at Meydan Racecourse with some fellow 80's successes, Kid Creole and the Coconuts, Paul Young, The Real Thing, Curiosity Killed the Cat, and that "Heaven on Earth Lady" the wonderful Belinda Carlisle. The concert is taking place at Meydan Racecourse, which has great parking and access which has got to be a bonus to those of you who are planning on attending. The date: Thursday 7th of April.

I was lucky enough to be able to read an interview that Boy George has given regarding the forthcoming concert and this is what he had to say about what he has learnt in the last 30 years ...

"Like many people who seek fame, I believed that fame or success would create a problem free life for me, that it would remove my insecurities. I have more realistic expectations from fame these days. I have learnt to be in the moment and enjoy what I do without worrying too much about the past or the future. I am lucky to do something I love and make a living from it and so I try now to really focus on how fortunate I am. My music has always been a kind of personal diary and I write about how I feel and how I see the world around me. If you can touch another soul or reach into people's heart and make them feel I believe that is true success" ... Boy George

I follow @boygeorge on Twitter, he featured me in one of his daily pages, he tweeted me about his latest single. What have I learnt in the last 30 years?That is obvious really, it's that I do love Boy George.
