Stooges stage invasion at Glastonbury

NME.COM gets to join Iggy Pop on Other Stage

Iggy Pop brought his reformed band The Stooges to Glastonbury tonight (June 23) for a chaotic headline slot on the Other Stage – which resulted a huge stage invasion.

And after the mainman invited some of the crowd up during ‘Real Cool Time’, NME.COM took the opportunity to join them briefly.

The numbers started steadily rising until the whole stage became completely filled with enthusiastic punters. They didn’t depart the stage until after ‘No Fun’, when the star politely asked everyone to go. By then there will still people queueing up to join the party.

The band played tracks from new album ‘The Weirdness’, their first LP in 34 years, including ‘My Idea Of Fun’ and ‘Not Right’.

The biggest cheers were reserved for the band’s old classics, such as set opener ‘Loose’, ‘No Fun’, ‘1969’ and ‘I Wanna Be Your Dog’, which they played twice.

The set was:


‘Down On The Street’


‘I Wanna Be Your Dog’

‘TV Eye’

‘My Idea Of Fun’


‘Real Cool Time’

‘No Fun’


‘LA Blues’


‘Not Right’

‘I Wanna Be Your Dog’
