Pothead (6/10)
Start 19:00 / End 19:45
Pothead had the possibility to open for Iggy & Co. and at the same time play in front of its audience: the band from Berlin had there a lot of fans, who supported continuously its performance. The band proposed a fresh Hard Rock, played with bass, guitar and drums, supported by a base on the background, which shifted its sound to Alternative Rock shores. Singer Brad liberated an great voice of a deep tone, which accompanied with  pleasant guitar riffs and solos, making the wait for the Iguana more enjoyable, although some of the songs resulted a bit boring, affecting the performance. Surely, no one complained about Pothead as opening band even if, maybe, a more punk-oriented support band would have been a proper choice.

Iggy & The Stooges (9/10)
Start 20:15 / End 21:40
What is left to say about an Iggy & The Stooges’ live show? It´s hard to describe with words what it´s possible to experience when Iggy and the amazing Stooges get on stage. If you have already seen this band, you know what we´re talking about. How is it possible to describe that exchange of energy flow between stage and audience, that sound based on Punk, Hard Rock, and Blues, which brought the audience to dance, jump, crow-surf and sing along for the whole concert long. How to describe the stage invasion during “Funhouse”, or the feeling of listening live to classics such as “The Passenger”, “Search & Destroy”, “I Wanna Be Your Dog” or “No Fun”. What should we say about the riffs coming from James´s guitar, about the sound of Steve´s Saxophone, the drum beat created by Toby Dammit, or Mike’s the bass work. No words even about Iggy: his insane acting on stage always feels like the first time. He didn’t rest for a second, he jumped everywhere, danced and got off stage more than once to huge his fans. Iggy gave all himself to the audience, as the audience returned all its love to Iggy & The Stooges. This is Rock, ladies and gentlemen. This is Punk. This is Iggy & The Stooges.
