ATP Concerts Presents:  IGGY & THE STOOGES performing RAW POWER in it's entirety  London Hammersmith Apollo 2nd and 3rd May 2010    To celebrate the fifth anniversary of the Don't Look Back season, in   which All Tomorrow's Parties asks artists to perform classic albums   in their entirety (beginning with The Stooges performing Fun House at   the Hammersmith Apollo), and also as part of this year's 10 Years Of   ATP celebrations, ATP concerts is very proud to present:  IGGY & THE STOOGES performing RAW POWER in its entirety supported by SUICIDE performing SUICIDE (first lp) with more special guests to be confirmed!  Taking place at London's Hammersmith Apollo on Sunday 2nd May and   Monday 3rd May 2010, these will be the The Stooges first shows with   famed guitarist James Williamson for over 35 years and are sure to be   unforgettable events. Raw Power, released in 1973, was the Stooges third and final album.   Despite it's commercial failure on release, it has grown in stature   over the years and is now seen as one of the most raw and   uncompromising rock LPs ever created, as well as being a vital   influence on the burgeoning punk rock scene at the time. Featuring   songs such as the classic Search & Destroy, Gimme Danger and the   title track, it was re-mixed for release by David Bowie, but Iggy   Pop's later restored mix made it louder and even more vicious.   Pitchfork Magazine awarded the album a perfect 10.0 score.  Suicide, released in 1977 to a confused reaction, can now be seen as   a pre-cursor to synth-pop, no-wave and industrial; and as one of the   most intense punk rock albums ever created. Featuring classics such   as Ghost Rider, Rocket USA and the unforgettably bleak Frankie   Teardrop, Alan Vega and Martin Rev's masterpiece has influenced a   plethora of artists including Bruce Springsteen, Radiohead, R.E.M.   and Joy Division.  More special guests are yet to be confirmed for these nights.  Tickets for these two very special shows are priced at £30 + booking   fee and are on sale now from
