, Staff

Newly minted Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame inductees Iggy & the Stooges have announced plans for a summer tour in support of the re-release of their classic album Raw Power. The band is set to stop in Boston on Tuesday, August 31 for a night at the Bank of America Pavilion. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $25 to $50 with a special 4-pack of tickets available for $30 each, go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation.

After reuniting in 2003, almost 30 years after disbanding in 1974, The Stooges were finally recognized for their contribution to rock music when they were inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last March. Coinciding with their induction was a remastered release of the band’s defining classic album, Raw Power, as well as a number of unreleased recordings from the era and two special edition releases of the album. Raw Power features class songs like “Search and Destroy” and “Gimmie Danger”.

The reissue of Raw Power is available in two formats, both of which contain the fully remastered classic album. The deluxe edition, which is sold exclusively through the band’s official website, is comprised of 3 audio CDs, a DVD documentary, a 48-page book, five 5×7 prints and a 7-inch 45 rpm picture sleeve single.

This summer’s tour will mark the first with guitarist James Williamson since 1974. Founding guitarist and co-songwriter Ron Asheton passed away last year after suffering a heart attack.
