posted by Oscar February 15, 2018

The Smashing Pumpkins are (mostly) back together! Founding band members Jimmy Chamberlin and James Iha are back with Pumpkins leader (and sole continuous member) Billy Corgan for their first tour together since 2000.

The ol’ gang will be embarking on the Shiny and Oh So Bright Tour, hitting a massive 36 cities across North America starting in July of this year. The tour is not just about the reunion, but it actually doubles as a celebration of the 30th anniversary of the band’s formation and it will highlight music from their first five albums:debut Gish through Siamese Dream, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, Adore, and Machina.

Speaking about the reunion, Corgan said the following 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.

The band made the announcement this morning with a video that actually featured original Siamese Dream album cover stars Ali Laenger and LySandra Roberts. Catch that below as well. Continue Reading
