Wonderful news! Boy George has just announced plans to play a free concert at New York City's Department of Sanitation Family Day on August 17! According to a press release, George will perform "all his Culture Club hits" as his way to say thanks to those who made his recent court-mandated community service such an enjoyable experience. Says overjoyed DSNY First Deputy Commissioner Michael Bimonte:

"New York's Strongest are delighted that Boy George will join us at our Family Day outing in August and perform some of his fabulous hits for our hard-working men and women and their families. Keeping New York City safe and clean is a daunting challenge — as Boy George well knows — and we welcome his generous offer to entertain those who have made our City the cleanest it has been in more than 30 years."

Update: Terrible news! In response to our query about where we might purchase tickets, Boy George's publicist says, "It's only for the Sanitation Department workers unfortunately."
