    As I said in my "reasons not to go post" the Pumpkins are a bottle that needed to be aged a bit longer. I've seen them 3 times and they delivered once partly because they played Drown along with some Gish cuts & Swervedriver opened for them. I speak from experience. They are hit or miss live so take that into consideration if yr hopin a plane to Germany this Summer.

    Obviously they aren't holding out for Lollapalooza, so why not play Coachella a month before these gigs?

    It's extremely odd on their part...do you think they are a tad intimidated by the Coachella crowd, maybe too judgemental? (in case they sound like shit being back for the first time in years) I cant figure it out for the life of me why they would skip us.

    It could be the Smashing Pumpkins are not playing Coachella because they were not asked to play. I read an interview of someone who worked for Goldenvoice. The interview was done shortly after Coachella happened last year. In the inverview they said they never made an offer to Smashing Pumpkins. And they did confirm the Smiths were offered $5 million last year and they turned it down.

    i think they probably wanted too much money and they thought rage was a better choice. which it probably is ore of a draw, after all the pumpkins probably will play lolla

    the band didnt reunite this year. they have just been releasing re-issues of past albums so why would Lolla even want to book Billy & friends?


    I wouldnt oppose a smashing pumpkins set but would rather Just see a billy solo set. Their concert here in utah in 2008 was really cool even w/o the original members. The music speaks for itself.

    I would prefer everything before Adore.

    Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness as a full album done with a stage production similar to the album artwork and the "Tonight, Tonight" music video would be fucking stellar.

    Now do it Billy, Mugwog bids so.

    SP rarely put on a good live show. The only time I enjoyed seeing them was opening up for Kiss at Dodger stadium for the 98 Halloween psycho circus show. They were dressed as the Beatles and played for like 45 minutes. Their headlining Lolla set was a big disappointment and that was the original lineup playing Gish and Siamese Dream material. Not a lot of energy or production---just going through the motions. Billy doesn't connect with the crowd at all.

    ^ he connected very well when he was here.

    Why do people dislike Adore so much? Its not the best but still a good album even though it was mostly a solo album by billy.

    I saw the Pumpkins in August 2000. Wouldn't see them again and it was obviously over. I also saw one of the rare 2001 New Order Area One gigs with Corgan where he added next to nothing.

    There isn't enough time to pull together a reunion for 2012. Billy has European dates booked, not sure if Perfect Circle has any studio commitments. No idea about Jimmy. D'Arcy needs to find reality and a new face...

    Recently, an autograph collector got reamed by Billy for several minutes by trying to complete a Siamese Dream vinyl with only Corgan missing. He got the other autographs in the 90's.

    a reunion of the original lineup will never happen. iha still hates corgan and has said he has no desire to play with him ever again. d'arcy hasn't done anything with music since she left and jimmy left 2 years ago.

    Corgan's got that whole Teagarden by Kaleidoscope concept album to promote, why in the hell would he delay that to have the original lineup perform. They've had a big falling out, it's not gonna happen for now. The new stuff is awful and i dont wanna hear oceania songs

    Corgan's trying a hail Mary with the new studio album (Oceana) It will very likely flop.

    The band could have booked the sunset slot as a way to promote it. I don't think they are a draw unless there's an original lineup reunion and/or they play Siamese or Mellon Collie in full.

    Obviously a combination of both would be a headlining no brainer. However the relationship with Live Nation alone makes that unlikely, in addition to the other obstacles mentioned above.
