Iggy Pop and his newly formed band — which includes Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme and Royal Oak’s Dean Fertita — will perform at Detroit’s Fox Theatre on April 7, promoters announced Wednesday.

Tickets for the show go on sale Saturday and pre-sales kick off Thursday. Prices are TBA.

The Fox concert is part of a 13-date North American tour in support of the Ann Arbor-bred rocker’s new album, “Post Pop Depression,” which is due out March 18. The tour launches March 28 in Seattle and wraps April 28 in Los Angeles before heading to Europe for a seven-show run in May. The outing is billed as the only time Pop and his new bandmates will perform together in a live setting.

The “Post Pop Depression” project was announced last week, and the group made its live performance debut on a taping of “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.” In addition to Homme and Fertita, the band also includes drummer Matt Helders (Arctic Monkeys), multi-instrumentalist Troy Van Leeuwen (QOTSA) and guitarist/bassist Matt Sweeney (Zwan).

“Post Pop Depression” was recorded in Joshua Tree, California, and is Pop’s first solo set since 2012’s “Apres.”
