Iggy Pop, Josh Homme Set to Release Live ‘Post Pop Depression’ Concert Video
Soon, you'll be able to take home Iggy Pop's heralded summer stop at London's Royal Festival Hall on his Post Pop Depression tour. The 22-song concert, simply dubbed Post Pop Depression Live at the Royal Albert Hall, will be released as Blu-ray or two-disc DVD on Oct. 28 via Eagle Rock.
Pop was joined by a supergroup lineup that included Josh Homme and his Queens of the Stone Age bandmates Dean Fertita and Troy Van Leeuwen, as well as Matt Helders from the Arctic Monkeys. Together, they tore through songs from Post Pop Depression as well as two older Pop classics, his David Bowie-produced The Idiot and Lust for Life. A complete track listing is below.
The May 13, 2016 show marked Pop's headline debut at the legendary venue – and drew wild praise from British media. The NME called it "the best show of 2016 to date," while the Telegraph said Pop "all but ripped the roof off the Royal Albert Hall."
Ironically, Pop said he was considering retirement not long after this show. The Top 20 hit Post Pop Depression ranks as the highest-charting album of Pop's career; next on the list of The Idiot, which went to No. 72 back in 1977.
UPDATE: On Friday (Sept. 16), Iggy Pop released the video of "The Passenger" from the video. It is embedded above.
