Iggy Pop: Stooges songs live for the first time in 11 years

Iggy Pop: Stooges songs live for the first time in 11 years

Last June 8, Iggy Pop returned to perform on stage for his first concert of the year at the No Values ​​Festival in Pomona, California. Over the course of his headlining set, the “Iguana of Rock” pulled off some surprises, even bringing back some songs from the Stooges catalog that he hadn't performed live in over a decade.

On stage Iggy Pop was accompanied by a band composed of Yeah Yeah Yeahs guitarist Nick Zinner, Chavez frontman Matt Sweeney, Uriah Hackney of Armed, Las Nubes leader Ale Campos, multi-instrumentalists Joan As Police Woman and Pam Amsterdam and trombonist jazz Corey D. King.

The concert setlist included only two songs from Pop's solo repertoire, “Lust for life” and “The passenger”. The rest of the set was entirely dedicated to Stooges classics. Among these, for the first time since 2003, Iggy Pop dusted off “I got a right” during the initial part of the show, at the end of which he then reserved “1970”, which had not been played live by the artist since 1989.

The one at the No Values ​​Festival has been a unique show for now, and currently the 77-year-old musician has no plans for other sets dedicated almost exclusively to the Stooges.

Here is the lineup:

TV Eye
Raw Power
I Got a Right
Gimme Danger
The Passenger
Lust for Life
Death Trip
I Wanna Be Your Dog
Search and Destroy
Down on the Street
