Fun Lovin' Criminals to play charity gig at Manchester's Hard Rock Cafe

By Melanie Hughes

The Fun Lovin’ Criminals will be performing at Manchester’s Hard Rock Cafe, with all ticket proceeds going towards charity.

The New York trio will be taking the stage on Wednesday March 28 and playing a live gig in aid of the Bombay Teen Challenge.

There are only 450 tickets available for the gig so get in fast as such an intimate gig for a multi-platinum act is sure to sell-out in no time.

The Fun Lovin’ Criminals, originally formed in 1993, have a unique brand of eclectic rock fused with hip hop, funk and blues which has proved extremely successful over the years.

Everyone will recognise classic anthems such as Scooby Snacks and The Fun Lovin’ Criminal as they continue to cement their place as one of the biggest acts in the world. Front-man Huey Morgan also hosts his own show on BBC6 Music.

Well known for not shying away from hard hitting topics such as poverty, drug abuse and violence in their songs, it is fitting that all ticket proceeds of the gig will go to such a good cause.

The charity was established in 1990 and works tirelessly to rescue and rehabilitate the many destitute and desperate people living on the streets of Mumbai.

Bombay Teen Challenge provides services such as shelters for children of women used in prostitution and street children and homes for AIDS orphans to name just a few of it’s causes.

Tickets are priced at £20 per person and doors at are 7pm. You can buy tickets online from Ticketweb
