Iggy Pop leads mass stage invasion in Leeds

The punk legend causes mayhem at Rock The House bash

Iggy Pop and The Stooges closed out the ‘Rock The House’ bash in Leeds last night (August 31) with a rapturously received set – and a massive stage invasion.

Following support from The Horrors, Sons & Daughters, The Sunshine Underground and Scottish rockers Idlewild, The Stooges took to the stage and ripped through a selection of classics ‘I Wanna Be Your Dog’ and newer material such as ‘Skull Ring’.

The highlight was ‘No Fun’, during which Iggy invited the whole crowd up onstage – shouting at the security to ‘Let them up!’, as he did at Glastonbury earlier this year.

By the end of the first chorus, a lucky few had dared to make their way onstage but numbers quickly swelled as more crowd members vaulted the barriers.

Just when it look like things were about to get out of hand, the punk rock legend to charge of the situation, ordering the crowd to disperse as the final notes of the song rang out.

Amazingly the stage cleared within minutes, and the band were able to continue their set.
