State Fair-goers will be transported back to the '80s after Culture Club and the B-52s were announced for the Grandstand.

Boy George will bring his phenomenally successful British new wave group to the Minnesota State Fair on the final day – Labor Day Monday, Sept. 3.

Known for songs including Karma Chameleon and Do You Really Want to Hurt Me?, the band had 6 U.S. Top 10 hits during the height of its powers between 1983-86.

He was last in town with his group in 2016, when they played Myth in Maplewood.

This time, they'll be supported by the B-52s, known for their fun hits Love Shack and Rock Lobster, as well as Tom Bailey from the Thompson Twins.

Tickets cost $45 and $35, and go on sale this Friday at 10 a.m. You can buy them here.

Other acts confirmed for this year's Grandstand series include Niall Horan, The Beach Boys, Jason Mraz and Impractical Jokers.
