20 Years on - Fun Lovin' Criminals 'Come Find Yourself' Live in its Entirety - February UK Tour Fun Lovin’ Criminals will play live shows in February 2016 to celebrate and resurrect in all its glory one of the most important albums of 1996, ‘Come Find Yourself’. 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 peaking at No. 7. Huey Morgan, Brian Leiser and Frank Benbini will play the album live and in full for the very first time at O2 Academy venues in Leeds, Newcastle, and Oxford, as well as dates at Nottingham Rock City, Birmingham Institute, Manchester Cathedral and the capital’s stunning O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire.
