The 71-year-old’s last Budapest concert was seven years ago, when he performed at the 2012 Sziget festival. The performer most commonly known for his outrageous and unpredictable stage antics rocketed to stardom in the late 1960s with his band The Stooges.

His latest album, “Post Pop Depression,” released in 2016 and produced by Josh Homme, a member of rock band Queens of the Stone Age, is his 17th studio album. It includes tracks such as “Break Into Your Heart,” “Gardenia” and “German Days.”
