Iggy Pop Announces Spring Tour Dates

Iggy Pop will be hitting the road to support his new solo album Post Pop Depression this spring -- and bringing the all-star band that recorded it with him.

Pop -- joined by Queens of the Stone Age's Josh Homme, Dean Fertita (QOTSA, the Dead Weather) and Arctic Monkeys drummer Matt Helders -- hits the road for 20 shows starting March 28 in Seattle, with a seven-date European leg commencing May 4 in Stockholm before the tour wraps up May 15 in Paris.

The group is also planning to film a performance for "Austin City Limits," possibly during the South By Southwest Music + Media Conference during March in Austin, Texas.

Tickets for the North American dates go on sale January 30, with the European leg going up the day before.

"Post Pop Depression," Pop's first solo album since 2012’s Apres, comes out March 18. Pop has already released the tracks "Gardenia" and "Break Into Your Heart," (which can be heard below) and the group performed recently on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
