Debut album will be performed in full
Fun Lovin' Criminals are going back to the beginning for their latest tour which plays Birmingham Institute on February 25, 2016.

To mark the 20th anniversary of its release, the band will perform debut studio album, Come Find Yourself, in its entirety. The record itself will be re-released in February as a deluxe box set and 3CD expanded edition.

Come Find Yourself peaked at number seven and spent almost 12 months in the UK album chart. Its tracks include debut single The Grave And The Constant which reached number 72 in the UK, Scooby Snacks, a number 22 hit, The Fun Lovin' Criminal (number 26) and King Of New York (number 28). Scooby Snacks features samples from films by Quentin Tarantino.

Original members Huey Morgan and Brian Leiser will be on stage with Leicester-born drummer Mark Reid, aka Frank Benbini, who joined the line-up in 2003.

Fun Lovin' Criminals formed in New York in 1993. After Come Find Yourself, they released studio albums 100% Colombian, Loco, Welcome to Poppy's, Livin' in the City and Classic Fantastic.

Huey Morgan, who is now an award-winning presenter on BBC Radio 6 Music, says: "After 20 years, Come Find Yourself will be played live in its entirety for the first time. Our debut album burned a path for crossing genres that we now take for granted. The music is now part of our collective lexicon and we are very proud to be able to play it live and share our love of diversity which we have always, as a band, championed."
