Iggy Pop and the Stooges are to headline a charity show “Rock The House Live” gig in aid of The Children’s Society.

Also playing the show in the grounds of Harewood House in Leeds on August 31, will be Idlewild, The Horrors and Sunshine Underground.

Iggy Pop and the newly reunited Stooges will play the gig for free for the charity that helps more than 50,000 children every year.

He said: “I’m getting a big kick out of making music for The Children’s Society. All kids deserve a good childhood.”

Iggy Pop offered to play the special gig after his song “Lust For Life” was featured in an award-winning garden hosted by The Children’s Society at last week’s (May 25) Chelsea Flower Show.

The garden entitled “Lust For Life” after the song of the same name, won a silver medal for the design that reflected children’s ‘energy for life’.
It featured an arc of water that burst over the garden to Iggy’s hit song.

Iggy commented that “It’s great to know my music reaches out to so many and inspires.”

10,000 tickets, priced £26 for the gig will go on sale on June 1 but can be pre-booked from 9am tomorrow (May 31) by clicking here
