For those about to rock with Iggy Pop, we salute you. The Stooges wild man is bringing his so-called Post Pop Depression Tour, named after his latest album — a collaboration with multi-instrumentalist Josh Homme, of Queens of the Stone Age — to the Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater at 9 p.m. April 19. Get your mouses ready to click: Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday at LiveNation.com or charge by phone at 800-745-3000. The two men debuted the first track, Gardenia, on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert last week. The album is out March 18.
“A lot of geezers my age don’t work out of their comfort zone anymore because once you become legendary you don’t want people challenging you,” Iggy Pop, who is based in Miami, said in a statement. “I wanted to be free. To be free, I needed to forget. To forget, I needed music. Josh had that in him, so I set out to provoke an encounter-first with a carefully worded text, followed by a deluge of writings all about me. No composer wants to write about nothing. He got revved up, and we had a great big rumble.”
Victoria’s Secret model Adriana Lima really kept it all together Saturday night on the sand before attending the Miami City Ballet’s 30th anniversary gala, held in a large tent behind the W South Beach. The Brazilian bombshell is accustomed to striking poses in lingerie, so her white dress with the huge slit up the middle was no big deal. When the sea breeze kicked up, Lima strategically placed her red clutch purse at the opening. What a pro.

OUT OF THE TANK
Shark Tank’s snarky Kevin O’Leary is showing a softer side. The Canadian software mogul and finance whiz is bringing an exhibit of his original images to the Art Wynwood fair from Feb. 12-15.
“Art and photography always had a place in my life, side by side with business, like yin and yang,” said the millionaire, who will not be profiting off the show. Sales of his works benefit the Perry J. Cohen Foundation, helping guide teenagers who aspire to be, well, him.
“Every day, I meet bright, motivated young people who want to become entrepreneurs,” said O’Leary. “I want to do something to encourage them.”
