Corrie Star Rocks with Iggy and the Stooges

20 July 2007

Coronation Street star Jennie McAlpine is lending her full support to the forthcoming mini-festival 'Rock The House' featuring Iggy and the Stooges in Leeds on the 31st August in aid of The Children's Society.

Jennie, who plays 'Underworld' machinist Fiz Brown in the UK’s longest running soap, is looking forward to getting away from the factory and making the trip over the Pennines for a day of rock n' roll.

Jennie said: 'Rock The House is a great event. Having Iggy & The Stooges live in Leeds is a perfect way to bring the summer to a close. They'll be raising the roof of Harewood House whilst helping to raise money for The Children's Society.'

Currently, the line up includes Iggy and The Stooges; Idlewild; The Sunshine Underground; Sons & Daughters and The Horrors. More bands are due to follow soon.

The 'Rock the House' gig takes place at Harewood House mansion in Leeds with tickets costing £26 each*. The event will cover a large area of the grounds offering an eclectic mix of opulence with Rock and Roll. Tickets are selling fast so fans are urged to purchase tickets early to avoid disappointment.
