The event will feature reinterpretations and tributes to some of the greatest songs ever written, delivering a unique experience for Boy George’s fans as well as presenting handpicked stars like Courtney Act, Mo’Ju and Odette. They will be accompanied by an all-stat live band, with music direction from Andrew Worboys and show direction from Cameron Mitchell.

“We all know that the power and the creative influence of the LGBTQIA+ community across music, fashion, film, art and design is unmatched in its breadth and depth. After decades of struggle for acceptance we stand proud and united as we continue to colour and shape music, dance, art, film, design and fashion around the world,” Boy George says.

“’Fantabulosa’ will be about sophistication, high fashion, beautiful music and celebration, and I can’t wait!”
