    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…"

    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.

    Why do they make a big deal about being close to Chicago, then play Chicago two nights the next month.

    Thanks for the update. West Coast definitely is not happening until September it looks like.

    I hope they come to Tucson again so I can choose to not go this time.

    I will see them again, especially if they are playing Gish songs. They were great at the Fillmore both times I saw them.

    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!
