AMERICAN rock icon Alice Cooper will be headlining the opening day of Fairport’s Cropredy Convention in August – and it is expected to be Cooper’s only UK public appearance during the year.
Alice Cooper’s legendary stagecraft and showmanship will mean a uniquely theatrical rock extravaganza for 20,000 fans at the three-day Oxfordshire music festival.
The event has been staged annually since 1980 by folkrock pioneers Fairport Convention.
Band member and festival co-organiser Dave Pegg said: “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. We are sure our audience will be blown away.”
The Cropredy Convention takes place between 8th and 10th August.
Tickets will go on sale on 1st February from Fairport’s online box office at www.fairportconvention.com
The full festival line-up will be announced on 1st February but other acts are set to include The Levellers, 10CC and Nik Kershaw.
