Iggy Pop Painfully Retires From Stagediving

Yes, this is real and it's the ultimate performance fail:

Iggy Pop has vowed to stop stagediving after suffering a nasty fall at a recent show.

The singer, 62, revealed he dived for the last time during a gig at New York's Carnegie Hall. However, none of the audience caught him, leaving The Stooges' frontman bruised.

Pop reckoned that the audience were not expecting him to stagedive, reports Jam! Showbiz:

"When I landed it hurt and I made a mental note that Carnegie Hall would be a good place for my last stagedive," he said. "The audience were just like, 'What are you doing?'"
These kids today just don't know proper concert etiquette. It's the end of an era.

That is sad... sad that he's still doing it and sad that his fans won't catch him.
