"Speaking of Pumpkins, there's some big stuff happening, so we're making plans," he said towards the end of the video. "I can't give that away, but it's going to be interesting."
The smile on his face seemed to suggest that he knew the announcement--whatever it may be in the future--would please fans. In March, original Smashing Pumpkins members James Iha and Jimmy Chamberlin joined Corgan onstage to play together for the first time in 16 years, reports Rolling Stone.
As for what else Corgan has been up to, he said, "I just sort of finished a new solo album, which I'll give more details on in the near future." According to Corgan, he recorded everything over two weeks in California, and the new music is nearly ready to share. Read more and watch Corgan's full announcementhere.
The band is teaming up with ARTE concert and Livestream to deliver the last show of the run. "We decided to finish the tour at Wacken as it is the ideal way to end this magical tour playing to 80,000 core metal fans at this legendary Metal festival," says Iron Maiden manager Rod Smallwood. "Wacken has become such as international event with many thousands of fans from many other countries around the world joining and celebrating with the German fans so it is perfect for the final show of a memorable tour.
"Everywhere we've played the fans have been amazing and the reaction to the new songs and stage show has been phenomenal. The band has loved every minute on stage.
"So when Wacken and ARTE asked us to consider a live stream of our performance there we jumped at the chance to give our fans an end of tour gift. Streaming this final show live globally allows us to thank the many fans we played to so far, and, for those who couldn't get to see us this time round, a chance to see just how spectacular the live concert is and what they missed!"

"Don't want to do it next week, haven't penciled anything in, but it would be the culmination of what we've built and a consistent progression. Do you go to a Yankees ballgame and hold up a sign 'Where's Babe Ruth?' The team continues because the ideal is met. The standard is met.
"If someone else can be a great frontman and reflect the philosophy of KISS, it doesn't have to be me. Is there someone else out there either in their teens or early 20s now who is going to pick up the torch? I'm sure there is."
Gene Simmons is all up for it, too! He told WNCX radio, "one day we're gonna hang up our platform heels.... I'd like nothing better than if four new, young, deserving, hard-working guys would put on the makeup and carry the torch. That would be the coolest." Read morehere.
The band was joined by The Cult on the date for their second of four appearances on the tour as they are on the road in support of their latest album "Hidden City."

Resurrection features a number of guest musicians including Megadeth bassist David Ellefson, while Tim 'Ripper' Owens and Blaze Bayley feature on the track Taking On The World.
Tate previously said: "I'm excited for people to hear and experience Resurrection because I think it answers some of the questions that were posed in the first album. Musically, it offers some of the most diverse and challenging material that I've ever written." Check out the songhere.
And the Black Sabbath frontman, who's been three years sober, has recalled a moment during the making of his new TV series where he felt sorely tempted to start drinking again.
Told that he's "a hero to many people," Ozzy tells Goldmine: "That's kind of nice. I wish I was a hero to me, sometimes. I do a good job of beating myself up. The thing is, I don't like to treat people any less than I would like to be treated myself. I suppose I have an ego but I don't like to go, 'Do you know who the f*** you're talking to?'
"If I'm walking down the street and someone goes,' Hey, it's Ozzy!' I'll go, 'Oh my, here we go.' But if they don't recognize me then I'm like, 'Am I losing it?' I like to be recognized. I said it on the last album: 'I don't want to live for ever but I don't want to die.'" Read morehere.

The brothers and founding members of Sepultura have set up the shows to mark the 20th anniversary of their former band's 1996 album Roots - the last studio record to feature Max in the Sepultura lineup. They'll be joined onstage by guitarist Marc Rizzo and bassist Johny Chow.
They'll play the album in its entirety on all dates, with The Black Dahlia Murder, Combichrist, Allegaeon, All Hail The Yeti and Oni supporting on select dates.
Max Cavalera says: "Metalheads. It's time. Twenty years ago, we released the Roots album and changed the face of metal forever. Now, we're returning to 'the roots' to show everybody the magic and inspiration of the Roots live experience!"
Igor adds: "I am very proud to play Roots again - to reaffirm that after 20 years, it still moves people. We hit the stage again with Roots to destroy everywhere we pass by." See the tour dateshere.
Now Tool webmaster Blair Mackenzie Blake reports the band have finished a song which includes "unique time signatures" and are close to wrapping up another track.
He says: "I casually asked about the status of the new album - namely, how the writing and arranging sessions were going - to which drummer Danny Carey replied, 'Good.' While enjoying his house specialty lasagna to the sounds of an excellent pianist, he added that they were very close to knocking out another tune, and that as soon as it was finished, they would send a recording of it to Maynard James Keenan."
Blake adds: "When I asked if this was the song with the really unique time signatures, he told me that they had already finished the music on that one. Admittedly, not exactly stop the press news, but other than that they are still grinding away on new material four days a week."
Tool will play a run of US dates this October. See the dateshere.
Mainman Tuomas Holopainen says: "The title came from a friend of Troy Donockley, who after seeing our show a few years ago, defined Nightwish as a 'vehicle of spirit that defies category.' That beautiful description has followed us ever since, and felt like a perfect match as the DVD title.
He continues: "Wembley is mentioned first due to its recognisability and legendary status. I remember the show being very special, both a goal achieved, and a starting point. The crowd was heartwarming. The presence of Richard Dawkins on stage was just mind-blowing. The overall experience was a once-in-a-lifetime thrill ride." Read morehere.
J Marshall Craig is currently putting the finishing touches on the publication about the life of the former Megadeth sticksman, who died of natural causes in May while he was performing with his band Ohm. He was 51.
And the author reports that he, along with Menza's family, eventually managed to persuade the drummer that he did have a story to tell. Craig exclusively tells TeamRock: "Nick was very reluctant to do a memoir, as he believed he didn't have an exciting-enough life to warrant an entire book.
"Finally, back in 2012, I convinced him that he had a great story to tell - and also, the mother of his children was a big fan of the book I wrote with Eric Burdon, Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood, so she helped convince him that if anybody should write his story, it would be me." Read morehere.
Frontman Joel O' Keeffe says: "We get a lot of feedback from our fans saying how much they love the faster tracks but when they play them in the car - well, it can be tough on their pocket with all the speeding fines!
"Breakin' Outta Hell is definitely one of those numbers - even the guys who filmed the lyric video were stopped by the police and given a fine.
"These visuals really sum up the feeling behind the song, and the album, too - the whole message is right there. Put on the single, or the album, and it's f*** the boss and f*** all the tax I owe. I'm going out, I'm getting pissed and I'm going to listen to some hard rock'n'oll. No ballads, no bullsh*t. I'm breaking out of hell!" Check out the lyric videohere.
"Gilda's Club's mission statement is simple, 'No one should face cancer alone,'" Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian said in a statement. "The vital support they give to cancer patients and their families is truly a noble cause and we are honored to be able to help."

"I was staying in a kind of unique, maybe 100-year-old property, by myself," explains the singer. "I got spooked out because I come from the East Coast and the suburbs and I was out in the woods. That was the environment that brought out 'A Quick Death In Texas' - and the locals."
The Maryland band start a European tour in support of the record at the Off Festival in Katice, Poland on August 5; the trek wraps up at the Reading and Leeds festivals in the UK at the end of the month.

"We are pleased to announce that this fall Clutch will be hitting the road again in the US," adds Fallon. "This time with Zakk Sabbath and Kyng.

Watch the new video and Fallon's commentary cliphere.
Appice tells The Chainsaw Symphony: "We're going to do some dates on the West Coast at the end of October, and then we're gonna go over to Europe and do about a month there with Saxon and a couple of other bands, and a couple of dates on our own, and a festival or two in there.
He adds: "We haven't really gone out and bombarded the audience with this yet. And a lot of people can't wait for us to come to their cities. We're not doing this to just go out and try to make money - we're doing this because we wanna do it." Listen to the full interviewhere.
Among the items are his birth certificate, a guitar he often played throughout the 1950s and 1960s, the karate outfit he wore while working towards his seventh degree black belt and a still-working revolver, according to Invaluable, the auction house handling the items. The guitar alone is expected to bring in between $20,000 and $30,000. But recent auctions involving music memorabilia have exceeded their speculative bids and then some. The same auction that sold Bowie's hair (which was supposed to go for only a few thousands dollars) also auctioned off Prince's Yellow Cloud Guitar for over six figures.
The biggest item, however, will be Presley's birth certificate, which registered his birth in Tupelo, Mississippi as well as his twin brother Jesse's stillborn death. Invaluable, who will host the auction, estimates that document will sell for between $80,000 and $100,000. Read morehere.
Frontman Tom S Englund said of the follow-up to 2014's Hymns For The Broken: "We went from having no intention of making an album at all to having all the inspiration in the world on Hymns For The Broken. Honestly, we've never felt better.
"The Storm Within is a massive album. There are no fillers on it and we've never been about that. I think the inspiration speaks for itself." The Storm Within, which also features a guest appearance from Nightwish singer Floor Jansen, is available for pre-order in a variety of bundles. Watch the videohere.
They previously issued an official music video for the song. Percussionist Neil Mason said of the album: "It's just real songs, and I try to write about what nobody else is writing about at the time.
"It's country music, so a lot of people say the same things, and we touched on a lot of those things but with different ways of saying them. I'm real proud of it."
The Cadillac Three are currently touring North America. Watch the video and see the tour dateshere.
The new album was produced by the band along with Josh Schroeder and Justyn Pilbrow and is set for release on September 16 via Roadrunner Records and is now available for pre-order.
The follow-up to 2014's Memoirs Of A Murderer is said to be "an inspired body of work that marks a profound evolutionary leap for the restless, driven souls of King 810" with the album titled said to "reference to the dual themes of the record - Flint's real life violence and despair which builds the basis of frontman David Gunn's narrative, and the steady desensitisation and terminal shut down of the human spirit that is experienced under those conditions." Check out the new videohere.
The folk singer is also set to play four UK shows to celebrate his 75th birthday that month - and will feature a brass and string ensemble arranged by composer Fiona Brice.
Harper says: "This year, I celebrate my 75th birthday. In my 30s, my lifestyle was such that I could never have imagined that I'd live as long as this, but here I am.
"Perhaps because I thought that my life might be shorter than this, I've tended latterly to want to celebrate significant milestones, so here we are. I'm really looking forward to being out there again.
"It'll be really great to see old friends and new, and be in that heady mix of the song and the moment on a stage again." See the tour dateshere.
