Well my friends it's finally official.... Iggy Pop has revealed in a BBC interview that he will in fact make a comeback with The Stooges in 2010 despite the recent death of guitarist Ron Asheton. The singer said Asheton's "spirit still lives on" within the group and original guitarist James Williamson will rejoin the band after nearly 30 years. Iggy Pop said his band recently returned to the studio for rehearsals
Williamson will take over starting November 7th at a show in Sao Paolo, Brazil. A full world tour is planned for 2010, according to Pop. The band is entering its seventh year of continuous touring after almost 20 years of inactivity. As reported previously, the band is also scheduled to perform Raw Power in its entirety May 2nd and 3rd at London’s All Tomorrow’s Parties festival.
Never to early to start planning for the summer concert season now is it?
