The legend that is John Cooper Clarke gets back on the road for some high profile UK shows, leading up to Christmas 2010. Finishing at the Scala in London, the tour takes in 9 cities. JCC is getting back to his roots, doing what he knows best. Live Entertaining!
His career has recently taken a massive upturn. Alex Turner from the Arctic Monkeys, Plan B and Richard Hawley all name checked him as a major influence. JCC plays a cabaret performer in Plan Bs new movie and he is still talking about making a new album with Mr Hawley.
Not only headlining Latitude, The Green Man and Beautiful Days festivals in 2010, but JCC has been presenting his own unique shows on 6Music, sitting in for Jarvis Cocker and Guy Garvey (negotiations about his own shows on the station are ongoing).
