P "Love is Love" became a major hit in Japan. George also collaborated on the song "Electric Dreams", sung by P. The song was written with Phil Pickett former member of the s band Sailor who had also co-written "Karma Chameleon" and frequently played keyboards for the group. Despite Culture Club's commercial success, there were significant pressures within the band.
George was using drugs with money from his new-found fame. George and Moss were also romantically involved with each other, which was unknown to the public and the media at the time. Their relationship lasted for over four years and was often turbulent, with alleged physical and verbal abuse from both sides. Their constant arguments and the pressure to hide the relationship from the public started to take its toll on the band.
Although certified platinum in both the UK and the US, it was a commercial and critical disappointment compared to their first two albums. The album contained the hit single "The War Song", which reached No. Other singles like "Mistake No. George later stated he felt the album experienced a lukewarm reception because of half-hearted material he felt they released due to pressure from Virgin and Epic to have a quick follow-up to Colour by Numbers.
The song would become the biggest selling single of all-time in the UK and a huge international hit, raising millions for famine victims in several African nations, particularly Ethiopia.
Due to all the heartache from the break-up of his relationship with Moss, and all the ensuing tension with rest of the band, George turned to something then very much out of character for George relief in drugs, LP). Consequently, he soon developed a self-destructive drug addictionwhich in merely four months escalated from marijuana to heroin. ByGeorge had become seriously addicted ; without Moss by his side, his zest for the band was greatly diminished.
Songs on the album such as "Gusto Blusto" and "Reasons" took days for the addicted singer to finish. But by the time of the release of the second single "God Thank You Woman", news of George's drug addiction began to circulate in British and American tabloidsand the second single stalled on its way up the charts, failing to make a big impact.
George and Moss also no longer wanted to be around each other due to the constant relationship battles, and coupled with George's addiction, a forthcoming American tour had to be cancelled.
By the summer ofGeorge finally admitted that he was indeed addicted to drugs. The band broke up and George pursued a solo career, having several European hits and a couple of US Top 40 hits, though George would continue to struggle with his drug addiction for several years. The band first tried to reunite inafter many requests from Tony Gordon, the group's former manager and George's manager at that time.
George agreed to try some songs with the band again, resulting in recording sessions and producing more than a dozen songs that remain unreleased. George, however, was more excited about his future projects like his record label, More Protein, and his new acid house project Jesus Loves You. The proposed reunion ended up being cancelled. InGeorge and Moss put their differences aside and the band reunited to do a reunion tour, kicking off with a performance on VH1 Storytellers.
Greatest Momentsa compilation album based around the Storytellers performance, was released, and went platinum in UK. The band went on to tour, then reunited again for a 20th anniversary concert in at the Royal Albert Hall in London. Inoriginal members of Culture Club Craig and Moss tried to launch a new tour with another lead singer, as George and Hay had declined to tour.
Early that year, the band's record company placed an ad for a lead singer to " George said: "I wanted to like it but I couldn't. They're my songs, they're my heart, they're my life. InMoss stated that the project was shelved. In lateGeorge was part of a three-man Culture Club band that performed two live concerts, in Dubai and Sydney, the latter being a New Year's Eve concert, although Moss did not appear due to a back injury. Inthe band reformed and announced a tour and a new album.
A new picture of the four members was also posted on the band's official website, along with the list of the 11 UK concert dates. Alison Moyet was to have been a special guest on the tour. The band travelled to Spain for a two-week recording session. The new album, entitled Tribeswas scheduled for release in early on the band's own label Different Man Music via Kobalt Label Services. At the end of that year the album had still not materialised. On 19 Julythe band were among the line-up for a two-hour concert in Edinburgh Castleahead of the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
Hay did not perform with the band because he was in recovery after having knee surgery. In mid-Novembertwo days before the start of their date US and UK LP), Culture Club announced they had to cancel the tour due to George suffering from a serious throat condition. The cancelled tour would have represented the full original line-up's first tour in 12 years.
