Three-quarters of the Smashing Pumpkins’ classic line-up will reunite for a North American tour this coming summer. The trek marks Billy Corgan, guitarist James Iha and drummer Jimmy Chamberlin’s first tour together since 2000, though the band’s original bassist D’Arcy Wretzky will not be joining the trio.

Dubbed The Shiny and Oh So Bright tour, the band’s lengthy US trek starts on 12 July at the Gila River Arena in Glendale, Arizona and wraps September 7th at the Ford Idaho Center in Boise, Idaho. Tickets go on sale February on 23 February at 10am local time with complete information available on the Smashing Pumpkins’ website.

The tour notably coincides with the 30th anniversary of the Smashing Pumpkins’ formation. During the tour, the band will exclusively play songs off their first five albums: 1991’s Gish, 1993’s Siamese Dream, 1995’s Mellon Collie And the Infinite Sadness, 1998’s Adore and 2000’s Machina.

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

    I grew up on you ironically playing disarm and rat in a cage to my sister’s hump at 19……

    I was in 7th 8th grade and my first real CD was Adore.

    Before the above.

    I’m thirty now.

    I still remember running the train tracks to get in shape for best buy to buy a smashing pumpkins DVD that had two weird objects on it and you doing disarm in a nice acoustic set …..

    My sister was in disbelief being it 2001 and she was reminded of 8th grade.

    Your music moved me.

    If anything makes senses i would like Radio and Heavey metal Machine …..I loved live videos back then and loved them.

    That was the beauty of the internet at that time.

    Seeing live music.

    I have emailed before but its all really hard when your nothing with rights that would really make the badae ( Hope its spelled Right)
