Iggy Pop announces first UK gig with Josh Homme and Matt Helders

Pop's new album is released in March

Iggy Pop will headline London’s Royal Albert Hall with new bandmates Josh Homme and Matt Helders in May.

As reported, Pop’s new album ‘Post Pop Depression’ is scheduled for release on March 18 and was recorded in secret last year. His band for the album was made up of Homme (who also produced the album), Arctic Monkeys‘ drummer Matt Helders and Homme’s Queens of the Stone Age colleague Dean Fertita.

The band will be playing select live dates around the globe, with Homme on record as saying they will only perform in “small, beautiful theaters where their presence might still seem disruptive.”


The first UK venue to host the band will be the Royal Albert Hall in London with the band set to play on May 13. Tickets for the gig go on sale at 9am on Friday (January 29).

The first track from the album ‘Gardenia’ was launched late last week, while the new set up also made their live debut on Colbert. This week, Pop revealed the song ‘Break Into Your Heart’.
