Iggy Pop & The Stooges

ESSENTIALS: Iggy Pop's stage name has nothing to do with his music. Punk, not pop, has been Iggy's forte since he first came to the American music scene in the '60s. A true innovator of the genre, he has been taking fans on a wild ride for nearly four decades, and they have been his willing passengers all the while.

WHAT TO EXPECT: Iggy is a feat of age-defying stamina, bounding around the stage like a madman (many times, shirtless). The newer tunes don't exactly have the edge that the classics do, but Iggy still has all the energy of years past.

WHEN AND WHERE: North Stage, 4:50 p.m.-5:50 p.m. Sunday
