The Smashing Pumpkins Schedule First Tour Since 2000

Olivia Bee

Alt-rock icons The Smashing Pumpkins have reunited for the Shiny And Oh So Bright Tour, their first outing with original guitarist James Iha in nearly 20 years.

The band’s lineup will include founding members Billy Corgan, Jimmy Chamberlin, and James Iha. Missing from the stage will be original bassist D’arcy Wtretzky who has, as the band noted in an official statement, “repeatedly been invited out to play with the group, participate in demo sessions, or at the very least, meet face-to-face, and in each and every instance she always deferred.”

Setlists will feature content from The Smashing Pumpkins’ back catalogue, with songs from albums like Gish, Siamese Dream, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, Adore, and Machina.

“This show and staging will be unlike any we’ve ever done, and will feature a set unlike any we’ve ever played. For if this is a chance at a new beginning, we plan on ushering it in with a real bang,” Corgan said in an official statement.

Smashing Pumpkins’ 36-city summer tour will begin in Glendale, Ariz. on July 12. Tickets will go on sale Feb. 23 at 10 a.m. local time on both the Smashing Pumpkins website and LiveNation.
