A review of Iggy Pop Live At United Palace Theater In New York.

 

On April 12th, I took the subway from midtown Manhattan to Washington Heights, on my way to see Iggy Pop. The train was packed with excited fans betting on the playlist and raving about Post Pop Depression, the recent collaboration between Iggy and Josh Homme. The mood was uplifting and the United Palace Theater surprised me: what a stunning venue: it had a royal, yet somehow gritty and decadent feel to it - a perfect fit for Iggy himself, the reluctant godfather of alternative music.


I had the chance to see Iggy Pop in 2006, when he reunited with The Stooges (original lineup, with bassist Mike Watt replacing the late Dave Alexander). Back then, Iggy felt like a crazed hyena ready to maul everything within his reach.  This time, he was more like a Jaguar focusing on its prey, moving with energy and elegance.


The chemistry between Iggy and his new band for this tour, led by Queens Of The Stone Age’s Josh Homme is undeniable: the combo added a new personality to classics the likes of “Lust For Life”, “China Girl” and “Nightclubbing”, seamlessly blending old school favorites with new material such as “Gardenia” or “Break Into Your Heart”.


Iggy’s vocals and stage antics were as on-point as ever, and the show’s dynamics where very special: Homme’s approach enriched the music with a cavernous blend of darkness, but Iggy’s energy was uplifting and bright, making for a fun and diverse show that left everyone with a smile on their face.
