When I saw Iggy Pop perform at Carnegie Hall recently, I knew it was a historic rock and roll moment, but until today, I had no idea that I was to witness his final stagedive ever! NME has reported that after making a pretty horrible fall at the legendary venue, he has decided that his days of stage diving are over. The pictures you are about to see do not live up to the highest standard that I usually provide, but since they are now a piece of history, I thought I’d share the final moments of Iggy Pop stagediving with you. The action happened so quickly and was so shocking, I could barely believe my eyes.
Some back story: The crowd decided to rush the stage at Carengie Hall (and watching security totally freak out was worth the price of admission on its own), and Iggy decided to dive into the crowd. The dive did not go as well as planned as there was hardly any space between the stage and the first row of seats. However, Iggy being the amazing performer he is, rebounded in just a few seconds and was back on stage in a blink-and-you-missed-it moment.
