Iggy & The Stooges have been added to the Voodoo Music Experience lineup in New Orleans Halloween weekend, after the Donnas cancelled. They will play Saturday November 1.
NEW ORLEANS, LA: Rehage Entertainment, Inc. is pleased to announce Iggy
& The Stooges have joined the 5th Annual Voodoo Music* Experience
line-up this Halloween in New Orleans. Join these rock 'n' roll legends
as they take the Voodoo stage on Saturday, November 1, and show fans why
they have transcended for more than four decades.
A true elder statesman of rock 'n' roll, legendary Iggy Pop began his
musical career in the 60's and has survived the '70s, '80s, '90s and
beyond. It is not enough that his early days in The Stooges virtually
single-handedly godfathered punk rock, garage rock and American heavy
metal more than three decades ago, or that Iggy Pop went on to conquer
Europe and the far East as a headlining phenomenon in the '90s. Even
today, Iggy Pop's energy, nerve, and charisma allow him to fill stadiums
around the world and indicates that the specter of Iggy Pop is a far
more universal force in rock than many suspect.
The reunion of original founding Stooges members Iggy Pop, and brothers
Ron Asheton (guitar and bass) and Scott Asheton (drums) is celebrated
with four newly recorded tracks on Skull Ring, Iggy's seventh album on
Virgin Records. Although Skull Ring features fresh collaborations with
mega-platinum hitmakers Green Day ("Private Hell," "Supermarket") and
Canadian punk-pop hipsters Sum 41 ("Little Know It All," the first
single from the new album), the majority of the new tracks were recorded
with Iggy's hard-working band the Trolls.
Rehage Entertainment, Inc. has also just announced the cancellation of
The Donnas. The all-female teenage garage rock band has cancelled its
fall tour as a result of the drummer's injured wrist.
