yeah that was a stupid question wasn't it? !!

It wasn't quite what I meant - should have asked Who is going?

And have a great time!

Poor Mike often gets overlooked when the Stooges are mentioned, but interesting that Deniz Tek is on guitar, and presumably not James?
Or is Deniz an additional guitarist?? If so, they could play the 1971 material...

Someone better bootleg this show! This sounds like it will be such a great show. I wish I could go, but I don't live too close to Michigan. It's so boring here.

There's some info on the Ron Foundation site:

All for a good cause, and I hope we get some good pics and even a video!

I hope that Ron gets a tribute every year. He should do, every year, and that would be a great focus for the foundation. That way those of us way far away will maybe be able one day to make it over to pay respects and tributes.

I know exactly what you mean! I spent a few hours trying to get tickets Wednesday in the pre-sale with no luck. There was a lot of cussing and banging of the computer desk going on! The poor dog was hiding behind the couch wondering what the hell was going on! I saw there were tickets on ebay already so ended up buying two main floor right row F for $300. Glad I did because tickets sold out in under an hour on Friday, long before I got home from work to try Tickemaster again.

'All for a good cause' Very Happy So I had an idea for all of us who can't get to the benefit gig... we should all still pay for tickets. Yeah! Not to the box office, but direct to Ron's charity foundation. I mean, if I could get there, and tickets were available, I'd pay in a moment. So I figured as it's for Ron's foundation I should pay anyway, and maybe it's worth thinking about because if all of us around the world who would like the chance to be there (and could afford to be there, but just can't get there) would all pay the ticket price anyway - direct to Ron's charity foundation - that might make this event really HUGE.

I'm not going... Sad

But will this concert be released on DVD? or at least shown on T.V?

It looks like it will be one heck of a show.

I hope there's going to be a good audio &/or maybe video recording made for marketing. It looks like it's going to be a memorable night.

Yey, this may be the first time we get to hear a new piece of Pop/Williamson music, even better if it's a ron tribute song. Get your iphones ready, people!

Very good interview, Iggy talking with great respect but still in a funny way about Ron.
Even though I wouldn't call it "long interview" but in the age short facebook status messages this might be considered long.
