    Boo! Hiss! Culture Club have had to cancel their North American and U.K. club tours due to an issue with singer Boy George's throat.

    Here is their statement: "It is with great regret that the members of Culture Club have announced the cancellation of their tours in North America and the U.K. scheduled for November and December 2014. It became necessary to do so this week when a polyp was discovered in George's throat. The throat specialist has ordered George to not sing as it may necessitate an operation."

    The statement continued: "George and the band are devastated by this news and so it is with much regret that the tour is cancelled until further notice. Refunds are available at the point of purchase. We are hoping we can reschedule the concerts for next year, and hopefully George's problem will be resolved. To our fans we wish to thank you for your loyalty and know that we love you all."

    The band reunited and will release Tribes next year.

    Let's hope singer Boy George gets better and this reunion goes on as planned. If he has a throat issue, that is NOT to be messed with as it could cause irreparable damage. It's best to let him deal and for the band to come back and tour in 2015. We send him our best.

    Are you stoked that Culture Club are back together?
