Culture Club has canceled its comeback tour, including a run at the Beacon Theatre on Nov. 25 and 26, after doctors ordered Boy George to rest his voice.

Doctors discovered a polyp in George’s throat that could require an operation if his condition worsened. A spokeswoman for the band, who are set to release their first album since 1999 early next year, said that George and the band are devastated by the news. They released their new single “More than Silence” earlier this month.

Refunds for all the shows are available at the point of purchase.

“We are hoping we can reschedule the concerts for next year, and hopefully George’s problem will be resolved,” the band said in a statement.
