Godfather of punk Iggy Pop’s 2016 performance at the Royal Albert Hall has been awarded Best Live Music Coverage at the UK Music Video Awards!
Seeing off competition from huge musical acts Catfish and the Bottlemen, Ed Sheeran, Imagine Dragons, Rudimental, and The Rolling Stones, it was Pop’s headline debut at the Hall which saw production company Splinter Films walk away with top prize in the Live Music Coverage category.
This relentlessly energetic show at the Hall, performed as part of Pop’s Post Pop Depression tour, was certainly one of the live events of the year and one of the standout shows of his career.
The 69-year old rocker, and his supergroup lineup of Josh Homme, Dean Fertita, Troy Van Leeuwen, and Matt Helders, powered through a blistering two-hour set packed with Pop’s biggest hits. The extraordinary atmosphere of this once-in-a-lifetime event, ‘more like a life changing event rather than just a rock concert’, has been captured remarkably in the recording of the night by Splinter Films.
