Iggy Pop

EFG London Jazz Festival

Iggy Pop, with long hair and a beard, is sitting on a chair in front of a velvet curtain

A UK exclusive performance of his critically acclaimed new album Free, as part of this year's EFG London Jazz Festival.

From breaking new grounds in punk rock with The Stooges to his radio show on BBC 6 Music, Iggy Pop has always challenged norms, defied expectations and has been a major influence on countless musicians from a wide range of genres. His new record – ' a dreamy and sparse soundscape full of erotic-thriller saxophones' as described by The Independent builds on years of jazz collaborations with the likes of Medeski Martin and Wood, singing on Jamie Saft, Steve Swallow and Bobby Previte's Loneliness Road, and his jazz, chanson and literature influenced 2009 album Préliminaires.

This performance will begin promptly at the advertised start time and running time will be confirmed closer to the event.

Under 14s need to be accompanied by an adult.

‘Free is a liberating collection that unshackles the star from his past and his insecurities, and slowly cracks open a door to version of the future that will inevitably arrive when he’s ready.‘
‘Iggy Pop has delivered one of the most singular and interesting records of his long career.‘
