Why does this band have to be so stupid about releasing their tour dates?

An announcement covering only the first stop of their tour?! DUMB.

Smashing Pumpkins management < shit for brains

"I know, let’s see how much we can fuck with our fans!"
"Yes, they'll further connect with the pain, anguish and angst in our sound…"

Rocke, I figure they play here during your honeymoom, so there goes that.

The whole Zwan < the "new" Smashing Pumpkins mentality of Billy is fucking stupid. It's still the same two original members. I don't know who he thinks he's trying to fool here besides maybe some teenagers.

They did not even fill half the Dodge Theatre in Phoenix when they were here last year, so even smaller venues are probably in order.
Even though the crowd was small, they did sound pretty damn good. Doesn't really bother me that they moved on without James & D'Arcy.....

I don't see anything in any of those announcements that say Gish. But then doing a Don't Look Back-style show for Gish would rule immensely. The SD or MC&tIS shows would be better (as might be the Adore show and the Pisces Iscariot show but would they do one for a comp?) but this would have me way more excited than if'n I expected them to focus on that abysmal new album.

That being said that thread linked to mentioned $85 a ticket (another thing I'ven't been able to confirm) and that just isn't gonna happen, no matter what they promise to play.

seriously.

TGTBATQ played their album start to finish at coach 2007, what about piggy backing the waters (full classic album) booking trend and have the SP play gish at coachella 09?? I saw them at SDSU in 2007, and probably dont want to shell out for another show.

TGTBATQ played that album in order every night. Technically that band doesn't have a name. It is just the album.

Not in the announcement linked, but they have been advertising the Gish tour to coincide with their 20th anniversary in August/September, so I think this would be it. They haven't fully stated what the Gish tour means, but I think it is safe to assume the whole album will be played.

Same here. But I still feel a need to see them, especially when I rewatch Vieuphoria. And if they're focusing on Gish (or Siamese Dream, one of the greatest albums of the past 25 years), that sweetens the deal. Just announce a damn Chicago show already!

Ya, the gish tour is in 2009. The August shows are a warm up thing just for fun. ANd in November, those are the anniversary shows.

Well sorry to do the Gish thing in the title, but hey its attention grabbing. See, last year when they did the residencies, it was all Live Nation, same with the fall tour, theres little deals made as to why those shows did not cost nearly as much as these. Them playing a casino is rather lame. but then again, this is an AEG venue, so if its going that direction, expect SP to play a GV venue here in l.a. when they come. Maybe they open up the new venue in downtown in the fall.

I was under the assumption it was the Gish tour, too. They have been promoting the Gish shows and saying dates were coming soon. Not that I doubt you sax, but do you have a link that explains what the hell they are doing?

From Smashingpumpkins.com


So what do we know so far? There are (at least) three tours in the works: 3) The Gish era tour, now confirmed for sometime in 2009; 2) The 20th Anniversary tour, which will take place in L.A., New York and Chicago in November of 2008; 1) The USA-Small-Club-Tour, which looks like it'll be expensive, and will be hitting venues variously throughout the United States over a couple of weeks this August.

"People are, of course, excited about the August tour. With the anniversary shows happening in NYC, LA and Chicago (with more to be announced!) and the Gish tour in distant 2009, it's fantastic to hear that there are going be more shows in a month!"

...looks like based on one of the articles there will be more anniversary shows too... hopefully san francisco...

...looks like based on one of the articles there will be more anniversary shows too... hopefully san francisco...

I'm pretty sure the main objective for the anniversary tour was to play cities they missed last tour, and SF got the Fillmore residency last year

but never say never

if you do a search on Ticketmaster, it says NO TICKETMASTER DATES SCHEDULED for Smashing Pumpkins, even though there is in fact a date listed under their name.

Also, the venue's page has changed its info slightly. Ticket prices are now listed at $85 compared to the Ticketmaster and originally announced $83 ticket price.

Where did you get this info from? St Andrews only holds about 1000 people, that would be insane if they played there. Looking on youtube, I see that they played there in 1999 with the original lineup of Jimmy, D'arcy, James, Billy. That would be amazing to experience them at a venue that small. But this ain't the real Pumpkins.

That'd be worth something. I think the first time they toured Gish, I was under 21 and couldn't see them. Or at least I didn't see them.

Well hello James and D'Arcy, thanks for joining us, but how bout you just pick up your instruments...


Smashing Pumpkins members sue former label

James Iha and D'Arcy Wretzky-Brown file suit

Former Smashing Pumpkins members James Iha and D'Arcy Wretzky-Brown have filed a lawsuit against Virgin Records saying the label made a deal with frontman Billy Corgan regarding the band’s music, but neither Iha nor Wretzky-Brown were consulted.

The suit, which was filed yesterday in Los Angeles, says that the 2005 deal with Corgan involved electronic downloads, and the pair are seeking damages.

The suit says that Corgan and Virgin adusted the Pumpkins record deal to "exploit all of the band's recordings via electronic transmissions" without the permission of Iha or Wretzky-Brown.

Corgan has already reportedly received at least one royalty payment, according to the suit which appeared on TMZ.com.

Corgan is currently playing live with a reshuffled Smashing Pumpkins line-up, with just he and drummer Jimmy Chamberlin as the original members.
