Mate of mine caught them twice during the summer and said they were shockingly bad - and he would have been a huge fan - so not gonna bother with this. What I heard of Zeitghiest was gash anyways.

I only liked them after I saw the mtv live in the astoria? back in 1994 I think it was.
Savage.
Saw them in `96 and it was a great show until they stopped after the girl died.

"Adore" is a great record. The accompanying tour had its moments too.

Probably the last decent thing the Smashing Pumpkins did.

The opening 5 tracks are as good as Billy Corgan has ever achieved.

I'm going to listen to that at lunch.

Smashing Pumpkins announce first tour since 2000

After extensive teasers on social media, the mostly reformed band announced a 36-city reunion tour to kick off in summer 2018.

Quote:
Smashing Pumpkins has announced their Shiny And Oh So Bright Tour, their first since 2000 to feature founding members Billy Corgan, Jimmy Chamberlin, and James Iha.

The band’s bassist, D’Arcy Wretzky, will not be joining the North American tour, but three-fourths of the acclaimed alt-rock group will be on hand when it kicks off in Glendale, Arizona, in July.

The Pumpkins, formed in Chicago in 1988, have been teasing the possibility of a tour for quite some time now, first with an Instagram post from Corgan in January, in which he said the band was in studio with producer Rick Rubin, and then later with a countdown clock on the band’s website. Last week, Wretzky gave an interview with the website BlastEcho claiming Corgan approached her with a contract offer but then later rescinded it, saying it “wasn’t a real offer”.

In a January statement to BlastEcho, Wretzky said: “I only just found about yesterday that the band has decided to go with a different bass player.”

The tour coincides with the 30 year anniversary of the band’s formation. The Smashing Pumpkins burst onto the scene with their 1991 album Gish and then, two year laters, with Siamese Dream. Their follow up and third studio album, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, was released in 1995, selling 21m albums in the United States alone and spawning the single 1979, the Pumpkins’ highest-charting song. Well-chronicled infighting led to their disbanding in 2000. In 2006, Corgan and Chamberlin reunited to record Zeigeist, and the band toured through the following year.
