Iggy Pop @ Terminal 5

Just days after losing a van full of gear, Iggy Pop, Mike Watt and the other Stooges did their thing at Terminal 5 in NYC...

The show was August 8, 2008 - the same night Radiohead headlined All Points West (which they did again the night after that) and 88 drummers drummed in Williamsburg.

the people behind the pillar look like they're having a REALLY good time.

There is no rock without The Pop!

How many times can Iggy get the fans on the stage and still claim his act to be "dangerous"? Seems like par for course w/ every show he does these days . . . just don't tell the kids that.

you got that wrong, because when Iggy says get on the stage no force on earth can hold the people back. Arcade Fire tried the same trick at RCMH and security was all up their ass and no one had the guts. just saying...

we love iggy

anybody have the setlist????????

Posted by Anonymous | August 11, 2008 1:17 PM

Not exactly. If Iggy tells the security to "let the kids on stage," this is hardly a natural force.

A really funny thing occurs when he does it midway through the set and then spends the next twenty minutes politely asking the audience to now get off the stage.

What a force! Maybe in 1970, but he is a cartoon character now. Plus the last Iggy/Stooges record was a fucking train wreck.

Ever see him kiss Madonna's ass? How rock and roll is that?

A dangerous rock and roll force.

what makes you think he cleares this with security? i saw the thing go down at Lolla last year in person and security was all like no no no but people stormed the stage anyway.

Posted by Anonymous | August 11, 2008 1:25 PM

I was at Lolla too; Iggy clearly told/tells security, "let them come up."

What was a real drag at that show in particular, was having to wait for all the 17 yr olds to get off the stage before they continued the set. Took forever.

@Anon1:21 - Very few people from Iggy's original era are still rocking the world. The guy partied so hard in the past, we all know he should have been dead years ago. Instead he's still making people happy with his music. So the guy paid some respect to Madonna who, like it or not, has had a major impact on modern music too, just like Iggy himself. What's your point?

Posted by blackhat | August 11, 2008 1:42 PM

Twenty minutes? It took about 45 seconds to clear the stage....

Posted by Anonymous | August 11, 2008 1:45 PM

Setlist? anyone? anyone?

Posted by Anonymous | August 11, 2008 1:46 PM

45 seconds? What were there only 15 people up there?

Do the math.

Posted by Anonymous | August 11, 2008 2:08 PM

the only thing that was pathetic is how the people in the audience reacted to iggy, i mean come on do you have 2 feet? get up off your ass and storm the stage and jump around. I dont care if your 75 or whatever (average age there it looked like) And Im surprised madonna just sat there as well.

oh, well, thanks for linking the vid anyway

at this late date, letting people on stage isn't about "danger." it's about "unity."

maybe it always was about that, anyway. it's the bouncers that make it dangerous.

Posted by Anonymous | August 11, 2008 2:16 PM

at this point, I'm not sure anyone goes to Stooges gigs looking for authentic danger or looking to recreate what their 60s/70s shows were like. at least I would hope not.

I saw them at Lollapalooza last year and despite the fact that it took way too much time to get the crowd off the stage (as someone here has just mentioned), it was really fun to hear them plays the classic songs. i just wish they would get James Williamson on board and do some Raw Power (and later) stuff.

"and do some Raw Power (and later) stuff"

They played Search and Destroy and I Got a Right on Friday.

Posted by Anonymous | August 11, 2008 2:31 PM

The math says that people were not leaving the stage one at a time, so if there are about a hundred people on stage and about twenty leave the stage every ten seconds, then yes, it would take approximately less than a minute to get all hundred people off the stage.

how come we can get a Toronto setlist up here on this board, but not the New York City one?

Posted by Anonymous | August 11, 2008 3:00 PM

if you wanna know about danger, i nearly got crushed up against the barriers in the front row at that stooges concert, and I watched a lot of people around me getting crushed. And then there was iggy hanging from the electrical wiring, and the crew obviously going, wait wait don't do that! Not to mention the random abandoned shoes all over the floor once it was over.

Posted by me | August 11, 2008 3:37 PM

I have been following them since their reunion in 02/03 and the show on Friday night was the first time that I know of that they played any James Williamson era songs:
"I got a right"
"Search and destroy"
Played mostly stuff from The Stooges and Funhouse.
Except for a 2nd version of "I want to be your dog" the encore and latter part of the set was from Skull Ring. Can't remember anything that that they did from the Weirdness.
Excellent show as always

He is still in grreat shape,but he's just starting to look a little bit like Cher.
Great show. But the new songs are terrible.

glad to know you weren't seriously hurt, but, ya know -- what the fug did you expect?

stand in the back next time.

"it would take approximately less than a minute to get all hundred people off the stage."

Has this guy ever been to a rock concert? From the way he describes folks exiting the stage, he makes it sound like a fire drill. Plus, there were barriers to cross and lots of drunk, stupid meatheads who discovered Iggy last week blocking the way. . .but I know his reading, everything runs smooth as silk at Terminal 5 and/or Lollapolgaga.

Get a clue, Iggy is a brand now; look at him kissing up to Madonna.

Posted by Anonymous | August 11, 2008 6:59 PM

^^^...and a brand you should feel honored to even have access to.

Posted by blackhat | August 11, 2008 7:06 PM

why oh why did they have to tarnish the perfect legacy by releasing The Weirdness...

didn't go to T5 cuz i've seen them three times since 2003 (all awesome) and didn't think another concert would add anything. HOWEVER, the addition of Search and Destroy and I Got a Right is MAJOR news. might have to check them out again next time.

best live bands in the history of rock'n'roll:

Stones circa 1969
E Street Band circa 1978
Stooges ANY FUCKIN' YEAR

What's the story behind the guitar that chick is posing with? And is the guy whose arm is on the right of that photo offering Lori drugs?

I wasn't complaining, I was responding to someone's claim that Stooges shows are no longer dangerous...oh nevermind. If anyone's interested read my review of the show here:

Hallo Vegan,

Iggy Pop ist eine der letzten noch aktiven Legenden. Der Mann ist ein echter Vulkan, seine Vitalität und seine enorme Bühnenpräsenz ist einfach einzigartig.

Ich habe in meinem Leben 4 Konzerte von Iggy gesehen und ich muss dir sagen, ich war total begeistert von ihm und seiner Musik.

Posted by Sandra (Largest Iggy Pop fan on Earth) | June 22, 2011 1:09 PM

pretty impressive, thanks!
