(yle.fi) Veteran American singer Alice Cooper's concert scheduled for Tampere [Finland] in December has been shifted to Espoo because of concerns over his shock-rock image.

Tampere Arena, which was to have hosted the December 11 show, cancelled it because a perceived conflict with the venue's "Christian-based policies".

"The [Lutheran-based charismatic revivalist] group Nokia Mission and others use Tampere Arena for their events, so the venue's management did not want Alice Cooper appearing in the same hall. The contract which we received from Tampere Arena specifies that no artists may perform there who 'incite evil and the power of darkness'," promoter Kalle Keskinen told YLE. [Ironically, Cooper is a born again Christian. Then again, Lutherans are not dispensationalists like most American born again sects] - more on this story
