Iggy Pop & The Stooges @ Casino de Paris, Paris Sept 25 2012

Iggy & The Stooges are back in Paris after playing The Olympia Theatre on July 07 2010, this time it's a corporate show for a French beer and everyone is invited: competition winners standing up downstairs and guests & VIPs at the balcony. Impossible to attend a Stooges concert without headbanging down the front.
There was a press conference a couple of hours before the show (we didn't go).
The show started at 9:00PM with the best possible way "Raw Power" the first words of Iggy being "Fuck You" & "search & destroy" here on video below. Unfortunately Scott Asheton is NOT on Drums, can't remember the name of the new drummer but he already played with Iggy in the 90's.The rest of the line-up is unchanged but Can we call this The Stooges without The Asheton Brothers ?!?



Iggy is limping more than ever but is acting as wild as ever jumping into the audience several times as usual he's getting a dozen fans on stage at the beginning of the show including our own photographer Guino Patrice who took it cool and took some nice pics from James, Mike, Steve and the new drummer (pics above).It's not the first time than the bastard is getting on stage with The Stooges , he made it too @ Fête de l'Humanité in 2007. The setlist is perfect with all the hits and some Iggy/ Williamson songs , they're even playing "The passenger" & "Louie Louie" from Iggy solo career which tends to prove that it's more Iggy & than a proper Stooges gig.
Can't complain as we had 70 min of pure madness...
