Iggy Pop performs an outdoor gig with Blondie and the super punk band

Iggy Pop will join Blondie and punk supergroup Generation Sex for a unique outdoor performance at Crystal Palace Park in London next year.

The 75-year-old American musician dubbed the “godfather of punk”, real name James Newell Osterberg Jr, will perform at the gigi on July 1, 2023, along with some special guests.

The one-off outdoor performance, called Dog Day Afternoon, will see the UK’s first ever performance by supergroup Sex Generation – featuring Billy Idol and Tony James’s Generation X and Steve Jones and Paul Cook of the Sex Pistols.

Organizers say the band will play a range of punk classics from both groups’ extensive catalogs.

Guitarist Jones, 67, says: “Sometimes we have time to see old friends, just for fun and entertainment.

“If it’s not fun then we’re not interested, life is too short. And that’s a great bill for Iggy Pop and Blondie.”

Blondie, co-founded by Debbie Harry and guitarist Chris Stein in 1974 and best known for new wave hits including Call Me and Rapture, is also on the bill.

Harry, 77, said: “We are delighted to be reunited with our friend, the one and only punk prince, Iggy, for this special performance at Crystal Palace Park this summer. next. Again with feeling!”

Pop, who is already well known as a solo artist and frontman of The Stooges, will be releasing his upcoming 19th solo album titled Every Loser on January 6.

Tickets for Dog Day Afternoon go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, November 18.
