Synopsis by Mark Deming
On August 25, 2003, Detroit rock & roll fans witnessed something that many would have thought impossible only a few months before: Iggy Pop reunited on stage with guitarist Ron Asheton and drummer Scott Asheton for the first Michigan performance in 30 years by the ferociously influential proto-punk band the Stooges. Roaring through a set of classic songs from the band's first two albums (and with former Minutemen bassist Mike Watt standing in for the late Dave Alexander), the Stooges played a gloriously wild and rapturously received show that fully lived up to its legend. Thankfully, a camera crew was on hand to capture the event on videotape. Iggy & The Stooges: Live in Detroit includes the songs "I Wanna Be Your Dog," "No Fun," "Loose," "Down on the Street," "TV Eye," "Fun House," and many more from a night of pure rock action.
