Update: Iggy and the Stooges' shows at the Warfield have been rescheduled to Dec. 4 and 6.
"I hate this, I hate like hell to cancel or postpone anything," Pop wrote on the band's Facebook page. "I only saw the doctor because it hurt so ******* much and I couldn't fix it myself. Please be patient, I am so excited about these dates on the left coast."
Pop apparently broke two bones in his left foot during an Aug. 27 gig in Romania. After resting for several days at home in the Cayman Islands, Pop saw an orthopedic specialist, who told the 64-year-old singer that he'd need to rest his foot for six to eight weeks.
We spoke to Pop last week over the phone, and he seemed fiery and sharp. He didn't say anything about his foot hurting.
The Stooges were set to play four dates in L.A., Las Vegas, and San Francisco. The gigs will be rescheduled, but no new dates have been announced yet.
