The Stooges have announced plans to reunite their surviving Raw Power lineup and perform the album in its entirety. The band will be performing under the "Iggy and Stooges" moniker which was the name that Raw Power was released under. Frontman Iggy Pop insists that "The Stooges" as a band no longer exist due to the sad death of guitarist/bassist Ron Asheton in January.

Three of the four original members of the Michigan band re-formed as the Stooges in 2003 and toured regularly for five years, including in Australia, but they played nothing from Raw Power because the band's line-up changed after its first two albums, the Stooges and Funhouse. When the band became Iggy and the Stooges to make their third album in 1973, guitarist Ron Asheton was replaced by James Williamson and Asheton played bass.
