Cooper for Cropedy 10 Jan 2013

According to the Fairport Convention official site Alice Cooper will headline the annual folk festival 'Cropedy' on Thursday August 8th!!
Cropedy organiser and Fairport bassist Dave Pegg says "We've been hoping to get Alice 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."
The site also says this is expected to be Alice's only UK show this year.

According to the 'Ship Of Fear' site the Chiller Theatre organised cruise which was to feature Alice playing a show on the ship has been cancelled.
