Before his Israel concert last night, pop star Boy George has been rather polite in expressing his opposition to BDS and those pressuring him not to perform in Israel.

But on stage last night – no more Mr Nice Guy.

“When I go to Israel people say you shouldn’t go, you shouldn’t go. F*ck off I go where I like!”

While wearing his Star of David outfit, of course.

He also told the audience he “loved it here” and that there was “such a mad vibe in this country” and he was here “to perform miracles.”

And spoke of meeting the mayor of Tel Aviv!

As for the show, it sounds like he hasn’t lost it.

Though his voice has aged, George’s gospel reminiscent harmonies blended with his female background vocalists stood out in the 2-hour show.

Joining him on stage were the original members of his band Culture Club. With Roy Hay on guitar and keyboards, Mikey Craig on bass guitar, and Jon Moss on drums and percussion, the British rockers delighted audiences with a fuller ensemble of brass and percussion that highlighted their unique blend of soul and reggae.

He and Culture Club of course played their big 80s hits “Do You Really Want to Hurt Me,” “The War Song,” and “Karma Chameleon,” the latter performed with Israeli singer Dana International, who brought the audience to their feet.
