Fun Lovin' Criminals Snatch Some U2 Dates

Is U2's audience ready for these guys?

The Fun Lovin' Criminals, they of "Scooby Snacks" fame, will be the second

opening act on the U2 PopMart tour.

The hip-hip rock-inflected Criminals

will take over after Rage Against the Machine finish their nine-date swing,

including opening night in Las Vegas next Friday (April 25) at the Sam Boyd

Stadium.

FLC are currently scheduled to open five dates, starting on May

19 in Kansas City and ending on the 29th in Raleigh, NC at Carter Finley

Stadium. U2 have already surpassed their record-setting ticket sales feat from

their last tour by moving 1.5 million tickets for the PopMart tour.
