Metropolis Fremantle says
To our friends down under - It is with deep regret but on advice of our management our Australian tour is to be cancelled. To those that have already bought tickets we deeply apologise. The costs involved in organising this type of tour are enormous and the level of initial sales have unfortunately made it unviable. Refunds will be made through the venues/promoters. We were very much looking forward to coming back down under and regret the inconvenience this causes. Sorry. #LoveYaBack




After 20 years of runnin around robbin banks all whacked on Scooby Snacks, New York͛s Fun Lovin͛ Criminals are heading back to Australia to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their seminal album ͚Come Find Yourself͛, presented by MJR.

The anniversary sees the return of a band to the live arena whose ability to merge and transcend genres saw them become one of the world͛s most unique and exciting groups when they formed in the nineties. Fun Lovin͛ Criminals will hit Australia this November to celebrate and resurrect in all its glory one of the most important albums of 1996. 20 years on this debut release for the group sounds as fresh and vibrant as it did that year, when it spent almost 12 months in the UK chart, becoming a soundtrack for the summer and spawned the global Tarantino-sampling smash ͚Scooby Snacks͛. The anniversary will be the first time Huey Morgan, Brian Leiser and Frank Benbini will play the album live and in full since its release.

Come Find Yourself͛ is a record where each and every track you remember within the first few notes, and so many memorable lyrics; "Means with the green, murder on your spleen living in a dream do you know what I mean? Smoke em, smoke em, smoke em if you got em, if you ain͛t got ͚em, then you hit rock bottom. Everything is cool and everything is schmoove. It͛s one of those clever releases that transports you back to the time and yet is ageless and ready for a new audience of fans to fall in love with it all over again. A long lasting and unforgettable cocktail of music with a nod to hip hop, rock, blues, jazz, funk and soul; with Huey Morgan͛s extensive knowledge and collection of music it͛s hardly surprising that this seminal album has such a wide foundation of influence.

Huey Morgan 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.
