Smashing Pumpkins and Marilyn Manson To Mix Things Up On Tour

(Classic Rock) Smashing Pumpkins and Marilyn Manson won't be playing purely greatest hits sets when they embark on their The End Of Times tour across the US this summer.

Smashing Pumpkins' mainman Billy Corgan said at a Q&A session to promote the tour: "These days, people come expecting a greatest hits concert whether you want to give it to them or not.

"So you can either play that concert and a lot of people leave happy, or you can decide not to play the concert and your fans that sit on the internet every day are happy. Then the other 97% of the people are angry and lobbing firebombs at you on Twitter because they didn't get their teenage memory handed back to them."

He adds: "I think the key is to find a balance between the material you probably should play and then the new stuff that fits in well with that. If you do it right, it's a great case as to why the new music is just as strong as the old music." Read Billy's opinion of hipsters here.
