Smashing Pumpkins In The Clubs

Smashing Pumpkins In The Clubs was a top story in May/June. Here is the recap: Bill Corgan's new incarnation of The Smashing Pumpkins have announced a summer club tour that will kick off July 6th in Cleveland and conclude on July 21st in Tampa. The Pumpkins also plan to tour South America and Australia in 2010 and hope to return to the U.S. later this year.

Here is the official word on the outing followed by the dates: This marks the iconic band's first tour since December 2008 and will feature, says leader and founder Billy Corgan, "a balance of classics, a few obscure ones, and new 'Teargarden' material."

Corgan and his band mates--guitarist Jeff Schroeder, drummer Mike Byrne and new bassist Nicole Fiorentino´┐Żare planning to invite select fans to attend their sound checks (details TBA). "We are going to do something unique, which is play an invite-only set during sound check of almost all new, unreleased songs," says Billy. "We're still figuring out a way to make it possible for some of the fans who'll be in the line outside waiting to get in for that." - more on this story
