Iggy Pop fans get the chance to see the punk rock icon on the big screen this weekend when “Iggy Pop: Live in Basel 2015” plays at the Arclight Santa Monica and Laemmle’s Monica Film Center.

Shot at the Baloise Session festival in Basel, Switzerland, the concert film features a slew of Iggy Pop hits, including “I Wanna Be Your Dog,” “The Passenger,” “Lust for Life” and “Nightclubbing.”

Joining Iggy Pop on stage for 79 minutes of outrageous antics are guitarist and longtime collaborator Kevin Armstrong, keyboardist Seamus Beaghen, bassist and The Catherine Wheel player Ben Ellis, and Thomas Dolby’s drummer Mat Hector.
