Boy George will play a private show to thank NYC Department of Sanitation workers who were nice to him while he was assigned to sweep city streets as part of his community service.
Two years ago, the 80s pop singer pleaded guilty to falsely calling in a break-in at his downtown apartment. Police officers found 13 bags of cocaine.
The show will take place on August 17th as part of the DSNY Family Day in Brooklyn and will include his Culture Club hits.
“The people I worked alongside showed great kindness to me at a very difficult time, and I wanted to thank them all in a way that would show my appreciation,” he said, according to AP.
Michael A. Bimonte, a first deputy commissioner with the department, is quoted as saying, “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.”
