After nearly two years of reunion talks, it's official… The Smashing Pumpkins are back on tour! The Pumpkins will be "celebrating songs from their first five albums: Gish, Siamese Dream, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, Adore, and Machina/The Machines of God" on their Shiny and Oh So Bright Tour, which marks the first time these Corgan, Iha and Chamberlin have toured together since 2000!
One of the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed bands of the 1990s, Smashing Pumpkins breakthrough album was 1993's Siamese Dream. Their debut was followed by 1995's Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, which debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 album chart and launched the album's lead single, "Bullet with Butterfly Wings", which also debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200. After several line-up changes over the years, original band members Jimmy Chamberlin and James Iha officially rejoined the band with Billy Corgan in February 2018.
"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."
