Iggy & the Stooges shift Wednesday gig to December

September 6, 2011 |  5:17 pm

Iggy & the Stooges have rescheduled its Wednesday gig for December.

Iggy & the Stooges have rebooked their canceled Wednesday night Hollywood Palladium gig for Dec. 1, the singer's hobbled foot having pushed what promised to be a night of rock 'n' roll mayhem into the holiday season. Tickets for Wednesday's show will be honored, or refunds are available at the point of purchase. The venue stays the same.

Opening for Iggy & the Stooges was to have been Mexico-via-Los Angeles punk trio Le Butcherettes, led by the fiery lead vocalist Terri Gender Bender Suaréz. Like Pop, she's a force that demands attention, wielding her voice to shade, yell or toy with the groove.

Sadly, a spokeswoman for promoter Live Nation says support for the December gig is "now TBA." However, Le Butcherettes currently do not have a publicly announced gig on the docket for Dec. 1.

The cancellation stems from a foot injury Pop got at an Aug. 27 gig in Romania. Pop sustained a pair of fractures, and a statement from the group said the singer would be sidelined for six to eight weeks. Tickets for the December concert are on sale now, and come to $53.35 with added service fees.
