Boy George To Thank Cash-strapped Fans With Charity Show?

BOY GEORGE is considering turning his return to America into a charity show - so he can pay back two fans who spent $10,000 (GBP5,000) on a concert that won't take place.
The former Culture Club star has been forced to scrap his summer shows in the states after being denied a U.S. visa due to a pending legal wrangle.
And although he feels terrible about the news, he's more upset about the fans who have already purchased tickets and plane fares.
In an online chat with celebrity blogger Perez Hilton, he says, "There's fans that have spent thousands of pounds (dollars) on tickets and that's really sad.
"There's a couple of fans who have spent, like, $10,000 and they're not gonna get it back.
"We'll have to do something to help them; we'll have a charity night or something."
George, real name George O'Dowd, hopes to return to America in 2009 once his pending litigation has been resolved.
