Watch Iggy Pop perform Stooges songs for the first time in 11 years with Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Nick Zinner, Matt Sweeney, and more


Iggy Pop dug a selection of Stooges songs from out of the archives for the first time in over a decade with Yeah Yeah Yeahs‘ Nick Zinner, Matt Sweeney, and more in tow.

During an appearance at California’s No Values Festival, Pop brought together an all-star band to dust off some old classics in his first show of 2024 and the first since wrapping up the touring cycle for his 2023 album ‘Every Loser’.

Joining him on stage was Yeah Yeah Yeahs guitarist Nick Zinner, Chavez frontman Matt Sweeney, The Armed’s Uriah Hackney, Las Nubes leader Ale Campos, multi-instrumentalists Joan As Police Woman and Pam Amsterdam, and jazz trombonist Corey D. King.

The set was only made up of two of Pop’s own songs, ‘Lust For Life’ and ‘The Passenger’. The rest of the set was entirely Stooges classics, from ‘1970’ to ‘I Got A Right’.

Check out the setlist and footage below:

‘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’

Pop previously reunited with members of The Stooges in 2009, but further hopes for live performances were dashed following the deaths of Ron Asheton, Scott Asheton, Steve Mackay. Pop and guitarist James Williamson are now the only members still alive.

Meanwhile, Pop recently revisited ‘The Passenger’ with Siouxsie Sioux for a Magnum ice-cream advert.

Siouxsie And The Banshees had put their own signature spin on the song ten years after its release as part of their 1987 covers album ‘Through The Looking Glass’.

“I love this song, and I’ve always loved Iggy’s voice. I adore how instinctive and spontaneous it all feels, and to hear my voice with Iggy’s is such a dream,” Sioux said of the collaboration, while Pop added: “Siouxsie can sing like a bird. I’ve always thought she was a great lady. Her version of the song was already special, but what happened here, singing together, is really unique. Like ‘Volare,’ the orchestral treatment and marriage of voices flies free, in a spirit of joy.”
