U`s Fans KOOPA On Tour Until December

The top-20 chart sensation KOOPA, who recorded the club`s epic single Stand Up 4 Col U are on tour for the rest of 2009.

The single was recorded during the side`s first season in the Coca Cola Championship, when under Geraint Williams they nearly made it to the play-off places.

Funds were dedicaed to young supporter, Emily Begg, who tragically died of cancer as a teenager. Money raised went to a special fund.

The trio are now celebrating the release of their Greatest Hits, which filled selves in the town from last Monday, June eighth.

Band-members, brothers Oli and Stu Cooper and Joe Murphy, also revealed at the end of last month that they are about to release a new album which was recorded in the US.

The band are at the Colchester`s Twist on June 26, 2009 and also in the town a day later in the Football Club`s new fan shop in Culver Square.

They famously became the first ever to reach the top 20 UK singles chart without the help of a record label.

The last date on thier tour is in Spain, on December 12.
