This year The Don Was All-Star Revue will celebrate the music of Iggy Pop who celebrated his 75th birthday on April 21st. The All-Star band consisting of drummers Ronald Pangborn and Ron Otis, guitarist Brian “Roscoe” White, keyboardist Luis Resto, saxophonist Dave McMurray and Don Was on bass will accompany Detroit singers Mick Collins, Steffanie Christi’an, Josie Pace, Don Duprie and Alison Lewis, Carolyn Striho and Scott Dailey, Steven Beggar, and Nadir Omowale as they pay tribute to the raw power and legacy of the Godfather of Punk’s solo work and as the lead singer and lyricist of The Stooges, an explosive band that laid the foundation for everyone from The Sex Pistols to Nine Inch Nails. Iggy Pop’s creativity has manifested itself with acting roles and his own radio show, but his combustible music and raucous stage presence are what left indelible marks on musicians and fans for decades. Detroit musicians and performers will honor Iggy’s legacy on the lawn of the DIA on July 22nd as part of this year’s Concert of Colors.
