Iggy Pop cancels Sarajevo concert after violence

(Reuters Life!) - American punk icon Iggy Pop and his band The Stooges canceled an October 1 concert in Sarajevo over security fears after violence disrupted the Bosnian capital's first gay festival last week.

"The concert is canceled," Rajko Bogdanovic, an organizer, told Reuters on telephone. "The main reason lies in negative images that went out of Sarajevo in the past days."

The gay festival closed early after hooded men, some shouting Islamic slogans, attacked visitors on its opening night, injuring eight people. About 70 men, some shouting "God is greatest" in Arabic, dragged festival-goers from their cars and beat others in the streets on Wednesday.

Islamic papers and magazines had criticized the timing of the festival, organized during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

Fans of two rival soccer clubs also clashed at the weekend in Sarajevo, damaging cars and buses and smashing windows of nearby bars. Several people were admitted to hospital.

"Sarajevo is still on the list of the world high-risk places," said Bogdanovic, the director of the Art Zone agency. He added that ticket sales were also poor.

The concert of Iggy Pop, known for his controversial performances, was scheduled on the second day of Eid-al-Fitr, the Islamic holiday that marks the end of the fasting month of Ramadan.

Sarajevo, known for centuries for the peaceful coexistence of Muslims, Christians and Jews, became a majority Muslim city after the 1992-95 war.

Serious stuff happening there in Sarajevo...risky place for such a festival.
Smart they cancelled. This was Stooges last listed concert.
On the other hand...pitty fear won again.
And again a gay happening got suppressed by violence Sad

Fucking extremist Islamist brainwashed fucks, how insecure can you get. Probably think they're demonstrating their manhood by a bit of gay bashing.

Sarajevo is still Europe so you would think a gay festival must be possible....yeah..it's too hot blooded there.
Seems to me like the organisation wanted to make a statement with that festival..during the ramadan..
and during that specific last day. That is pretty crazy! Cuz those Islamic get really loose on/after the last day of the ramadan.

BTW...I like your avatar JLTS > nice picture!!

That makes no sense. Ron played on the original, it was by the Stooges. That's like saying the Stones play a cover of Paint It, Black or Sympathy for the Devil.

I think Ron once stated that playing raw power stuff feels like being a cover band. He was demoted in that period (or at least felt it as a demotion) and I think he never really had peace with that fact. Although, them playing raw power and search might indicate he was getting there.

I must say (and not because Ron is dead now) that the bass on Metallic KO is fantastic

I wonder if Iggy regards it as a cover. Probably not.

No but for Ron it would have been. Its a song he didn't write and didn't play guitar on.
