Iggy Pop has said he’s stopped stagediving during his live gigs

A nasty fall at a recent New York show led to the 62-year-old singer making decision. Pop explained that he jumped into the audience as usual during the Carnegie Hall gig, only for no one to catch him, reports Jam! Showbiz.

“When I landed it hurt and I made a mental note that Carnegie Hall would be a good place for my last stagedive,” he said. “The audience were just like, ‘What are you doing?'”

Pop recently confirmed that The Stooges are planning to record new material following their ‘Raw Power’ tour, which calls at All Tomorrow’s Parties on May 7-9.
