Smashing Pumpkins Band

It is finally official, after two weeks of rumors and public infighting, the Smashing Pumpkins have reunited and they are going on tour (without original bassist D’Arcy Wretzky). Founding members Billy Corgan, James Iha and Billy Chamberlin will be joined by longtime Smashing Pumpkins guitarist Jeff Schroeder, as the band moves to a three guitar lineup to better emulate the signature tones and textures of their albums..

Celebrating the band’s 30th anniversary, the Shiny And Oh So Bright Tour will focus on music from their first five albums (Gish, Siamese Dream, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, Adore and Machina). Corgan promises staging and sets on a scope that the Smashing Pumpkins fans have never seen before.

Billy Corgan made this statement about the band in a press release, “Some 30 years ago, as The Smashing Pumpkins, James Iha and I began a musical journey in the cramped rear bedroom of my Father’s house. And so it’s magic to me that we’re able to coalesce once more around the incredible Jimmy Chamberlin, to celebrate those songs we’ve made together.”

Tickets go on sale on Friday February 23rd at 10AM here. Smashing Pumpkins will invade The Forum here in Los Angeles on August 30th.
