Iggy Pop's Cross Necklace Pendant


A metal cross pendant worn on a necklace by Iggy Pop, 1 x 1.75, with a small loop to the upper portion and much of its original black enamel coating no longer present. In fine condition. Iggy Pop wore this cross during the 1977 Idiot Tour, and he can be seen wearing it during the first four shows of the tour: Montreal, Toronto, Boston, and New York. The consignor, who was in the front row of the latter concert, retrieved the cross from the floor after Pop had leaned over the stage and an excited female fan had ripped it from his neck. Accompanied by an original ticket stub for that Iggy Pop concert, which was held at the Palladium in New York City on March 18, 1977, the same date Pop’s debut album, The Idiot, was released on RCA Records.

Description update: This cross was worn by Iggy Pop during the first four shows of the 1977 Idiot Tour, not the last four as was stated in the original description.

From the Ramones and Punk Collection of Daniel Rey, and accompanied by a letter of provenance.
