    Culture Club had to cancel reunion dates because singer Boy George has developed polyps on his vocal chords.

    He has finally spoken about the condition, saying, "The doctor tells me singing would cause irreparable damage, and that's not a risk I am prepared to take. He put a camera down my throat, and it transpired that I have an enlarged polyp which has hemorrhaged. So everything is on hold until it gets better. I don't know how long that will take, and to say I am devastated barely touches how I feel. I'd been having trouble with my voice for some months, but in true British fashion I ignored it, thinking the problem might just be tiredness, hoping it would go away."

    The band hopes to reschedule for 2015.
