Smashing Pumpkins Announce Extensive Summer Reunion Tour

first_imgOver the past few weeks, Smashing Pumpkins began formally teasing the idea of a reunion tour. Earlier this week, the band launched an official countdown clock, with many speculating the clock was counting down to the new tour’s announcement. Though much of this week was marred by the back-and-forth between frontman Billy Corgan and original bassist D’arcy Wretzky, who has informed a number of outlets that she was purposefully excluded from the reunion, today, Smashing Pumpkins announced their “Shiny And Oh So Bright” tour.For the “Shiny And Oh So Bright” tour, the majority of the founding members of Smashing Pumpkins—save Wretzky—as well as the band’s current longtime guitarist, Jeff Schroeder, will hit the road together and celebrate the band’s first five albums: Gish, Siamese Dream, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, Adore, and Machina.The band has announced an expansive list of dates for the new tour, which range from July 12th through September 7th. The tour will take the band across the United States during its two months, with a quick dip into Canada at the start of August. Tickets go on sale on Friday, February 23rd, at 10 a.m. (local), and are available on Smashing Pumpkins’ website.last_img read more
