Alice Cooper To Headline Cropredy
Shock rocker will play at the Oxfordshire festival
Alice Cooper will headline the opening day of Fairport’s Cropredy Convention on August 8. The festival has been staged annually since 1980 by folk-rock group Fairport Convention.
Band member and festival co-organiser Dave Pegg stated that "We’ve been hoping to get Alice Cooper to Cropredy for years, and at last the work calendars have coincided.
"Alice is one of rock music’s great originals and his live shows are pure entertainment with their great combination of rock, theatricality and breathtaking staging. But at the end of the day it’s the music that counts at Cropredy and Alice has produced some of the most accomplished and exciting rock of the past four decades.
"We are sure our audience will be blown away by Alice Cooper. Rock acts always go down well with the Cropredy crowd – just ask Status Quo!"
