Fun Loving Criminals Engine Rooms Southampton
The band performed at The Engine Rooms in Southampton on the fourth date of their 16-date UK/European tour. Straight away, the three guys show you their prowess on their instruments. It says, “Hey, here we are, look what we can do, what you’re about to experience. Get ready.” Let me say here that FLC don’t do covers. Well they do.....and then they don’t. It’s a cover but not as we know it. The FLC reinvent the song. I strongly suggest you get your arse of the sofa and get down to see them. You will NOT be disappointed. The musicianship is awesome, participation and interaction between the band and the crowd outstanding and the performance just exceptional. What are you waiting for?
