Smashing Pumpkins will reunited with (most of) their original lineup in 2018 with the promise of playing a lot of older, beloved material. The band will play two shows at United Center in August.
What We Say
The Smashing Pumpkins announced the Shiny And Oh So Bright Tour, their first tour in nearly 20 years to feature founding members Billy Corgan, Jimmy Chamberlin, and James Iha.
The 36-city tour will visit North American arenas throughout the summer, including a stop in Chicago on August 13 and August 14!
The monumental tour, which coincides with the 30th anniversary of the band’s formation, will highlight music from the group’s inception through 2000, and will exclusively feature material from their groundbreaking debut Gish throughSiamese Dream, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, Adore, and Machina. Longtime Smashing Pumpkins guitarist Jeff Schroeder will also take part, as the band moves to a three guitar lineup to better emulate the signature tones and textures of their albums.
