Film of Asheton Tribute Concert to World Premiere in Detroit Area

The world premiere of A Tribute to Ron Asheton will take place at two Detroit area venues: the Michigan Theater on June 6, and the Detroit Film Theatre (located in the DIA) on June 9. Recorded live at the Michigan Theater in Ann Arbor, MI, this heartfelt tribute/celebration of Stooges’ guitarist Ron Asheton‘s life and music featured Iggy and the Stooges, Henry Rollins, guitarist Deniz Tek (Radio Birdman), and director Jim Jarmusch.

Featured songs include Raw Power, Search and Destroy, Gimme Danger, 1970, Fun House, and the ever popular I Wanna Be Your Dog. Billboard writer Gary Graff recalls, “It was a typical night of Stooges-style brutality but in an even more passionate form, as the group and its guests took a wide swing through the repertoire, clearly moved by the sense of occasion and the cacophonous spirit of the 1,700 fans who snapped up tickets for the concert in less than an hour.”
