Boy George has reportedly confirmed that a Culture Club reunion tour is still in the works.

The singer announced plans to mark the 30th anniversary of the band with a tour last year. However, legal complications stemming from his arrest seven years ago currently prevent the musician from entering the US.

Boy George said that the band's tour will start as soon as American authorities lift the current ban on his record, telling the Daily Express: "[The reunion] is definitely going to happen, probably next year. We've written stuff and been in the studio. But we want to start in America and at the moment I'm not allowed in America, so I'm waiting to get my visa.

"Our original producer Steve Levine is working with us. It's gone full circle and we have all the original members, which is really great."

Boy George was arrested in New York in 2005 when police found cocaine in his apartment after a false burglary report.

He pleaded guilty to wasting police time, and was fined and sentenced to five days of community service. The drugs charges were dropped.
