3 500 people watched the return of Iggy Pop and the Stooges, Quimper

It was their first of four dates in France last night. The explosive Iggy Pop and the Stooges made a bright and noisy comeback in Quimper, yesterday. At the expo park, the iguana has ignited the festival audience, come mostly for him. In their forties and looking forward to see or review the idol of their youth. But also very young, who at 15 years, know by heart the lyrics of the Stooges. Surprising!

At age 63, the American singer, is still punchy, crazy and excessive. Shirtless, he twists his face with incredible facial expressions, utters cries, sways, gesticulating constantly, runs from one end to another plateau, rolling on the ground, jumped from the stage to touch the hands of the public delirious, invites some of the spectators to come and dance on stage …

The songs he sings? Those of the mythical album Raw Power and No Fun. When he sings the opening bars of “I Want to Be Your Dog” (I want to be your dog), almost on all fours on stage, the microphone between his teeth like a bone, it’s madness in the room.
