Early-May Music: Getting jiggy with Iggy

Iggy Pop
Thu May 5, 20:00; Falkoner Salen, Falkoner Alle 9, Frederiksberg; 480-630kr

Iggy Pop’s legacy is unprecedented: he influenced Alice Cooper and the Sex Pistols, and this is a rare chance to see the punk pioneer in action.
He will also go down in music history for outrageous stage antics that include stage diving, exposing himself and rubbing peanut butter over his body. So be prepared for mayhem!

A recently released 17th studio album has received critical acclaim. Realistically it is rare that an audience looks forward to hearing new material from established acts, but in the case of Iggy Pop this would be a massive mistake. He continues to be at the forefront of musical innovation. (AJ)
