The "Shiny and Oh So Bright" Tour!
Billy Corgan, Jimmy Chamberlin, and James Iha — three quarters of the classic Smashing Pumpkins lineup — are kicking off the "Shiny and Oh So Bright" Tour, their first major tour together since way back in 2000! Tickets for all upcoming shows are on sale now, so you can catch them performing the music from classic albums like Siamese Dream, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, and Adore, live together for the first time in nearly two decades. And because you've come to BigStub, you're already just a click away from the best Smashing Pumpkins tickets around.
“Some 30 years ago, as The Smashing Pumpkins, James Iha and I began a musical journey in the cramped rear bedroom of my Father’s house,” Corgan said in a statement announcing the tour. “And so it’s magic to me that we’re able to coalesce once more around the incredible Jimmy Chamberlin, to celebrate those songs we’ve made together.” Don't miss your chance to experience that magic, live in 2018 — check the schedule below to learn more about upcoming shows, and get your Smashing Pumpkins Tickets from BigStub today!
The Smashing Pumpkins — the legendary Chicago-based band whose snarling attitude and crashing sound defined "Alternative Nation" in the '90s — are launching their first major reunion tour ever in 2018, and they're bringing it to venues all across North America! While 1991's debut record Gish provided an exciting, more literary alternative to the the grunge sound coming out of Seattle at the time, it was their sophomore release Siamese Dream that announced the arrival of a major new voice in rock and roll. The group followed that up with their 1995 magnum opus, the Diamond-certified double album Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, an album that frontman Billy Corgan called "The Wall for Generation X," in reference to its epic scope and sonic diversity — and contained such iconic hits as "Tonight, Tonight," "Bullet with Butterfly Wings," and "1979." Unfortunately, the band was ill-equiped to handle the resulting superstardom, and while Corgan would continue leading permutations of the group off and on over the next two decades, the rest of the classic lineup had drifted away following 2000's Machina/The Machines of God.
Until now, that is. While original bassist D'arcy Wretzky remains on the sidelines, guitarist James Iha and drummer Jimmy Chamberlain are back in the fold, and they're ready for a show that Corgan calls a tribute to their first five albums together: Gish, Siamese Dream, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, Adore, and Machina/The Machines of God. Looking to catch them on their first major tour together since 2000? Then you've come to the right place, because BigStub can hook you up with amazing tickets for any performance!
