Today In Musique History - Iggy Pop, David Bowie & Blondie Tour Together

The year is 1977, Iggy Pop and David Bowie kick off a North American tour (The band consisted of Iggy Pop on vocals, David Bowie with keyboard and backing vocals amongst others) starting at Le Plateau Theatre, Montreal, Canada with still burgeoning New York band Blondie as the opening act.

Before the end of 1976, Bowie's interest in the burgeoning German music scene, as well as his drug addiction, prompted him to move to West Berlin to clean up and revitalise his career. Working with Brian Eno while sharing an apartment in Schöneberg with Iggy Pop, he began to focus on minimalist, ambient music for the first of three albums, co-produced with Tony Visconti, that would become known as his Berlin Trilogy. During the same period, Iggy Pop, with Bowie as a co-writer and musician, completed his solo album debut, The Idiot, and its follow-up, Lust for Life, touring the UK, Europe, and the US in March and April 1977.
