Boy George to Perform Free Concert for NYC Sanitation Department


Boy George yesterday announced he'll perform a free August 17th concert for workers at New York City's Department of Sanitation, with whom he was sentenced to work following his 2005 arrest for cocaine possession.

George released a statement through his publicist: "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"

George turns 47 on Saturday. He'll be touring the U.S. this summer.
