Iggy Pop retires from stagediving

A dodgy dive has made him rethink his stage antics

Iggy Pop retires from stagediving
Iggy Pop has vowed to stop stagediving after suffering a nasty fall at a recent show.

The singer, 62, revealed he dived for the last time during a gig at New York's Carnegie Hall. However, none of the audience caught him, leaving The Stooges' frontman bruised.

Pop reckoned that the audience were not expecting him to stagedive, reports Jam! Showbiz:

"When I landed it hurt and I made a mental note that Carnegie Hall would be a good place for my last stagedive," he said. "The audience were just like, 'What are you doing?'"

Pop recently said that The Stooges are planning to record new material following their 'Raw Power' tour, which calls at All Tomorrow's Parties on May 7-9.
