The Smashing Pumpkins have announced a string of 30th anniversary live shows that kick off November 28th at The Sylvee in Madison, WI. In addition to their previously announced sold-out date in Chicago, these upcoming shows will see the band performing in St. Louis, Tulsa, San Antonio, Tucson, and Phoenix. Tickets for the shows will be available at 10:00am local time this Friday, October 5th.
Last month, The Smashing Pumpkins announced a November 16th release date for their highly-anticipated new LP SHINY AND OH SO BRIGHT, VOL. 1 / LP: NO PAST. NO FUTURE. NO SUN. Recorded at Shangri La Studios with multi-GRAMMY® Award-winning producer Rick Rubin, the LP is the band’s first in over 18 years to feature founding members Billy Corgan, James Iha, Jimmy Chamberlin, with longtime guitarist Jeff Schroeder.
Last month, The Smashing Pumpkins wrapped their monumental Shiny And Oh So Bright Tour, which sold over 300,000 tickets across North America and saw them playing sold-out arena shows at venues including The Forum, United Center and Madison Square Garden. Produced by Live Nation, the tour was the band’s first in nearly two decades to feature Corgan, Chamberlin and Iha, alongside Schroeder, bassist Jack Bates and keyboardist Katie Cole. Critics were quick to praise the tour’s opening dates as “a massive gift to their fans” (Uproxx), “a welcome reminder of why those early albums resonated in the first place” (SPIN), and “an unforgettably rewarding and often spectacular odyssey” (Forbes).
